I Guess It's Been A While
One of the garage sale bags of yarn had these crocheted scarves or maybe the beginnings of afghans. Not wanting them to go to waste, I knit hats to go with them.
From the bottom, a knit hat & garter stitch scarf to match; a "fashion" scarf with one strand of purple worsted and various "fancy" yarns in shades of purple & blue; and one of my first cowls in a variegated washable wool in a simple K1,P1 rib.
Cowls are addictive, fun to knit & I'm hoping that they will be good sellers at our Sr. Center craft show in December. The top one is a teal, blue, green mohair in a mistake stitch rib; the middle one is a multicolored pastel boucle in garter stitch; and the bottom one is the Birthday Cowl pattern in brown White Buffalo Elanna Plus - a discontinued yarn. There are two more that I forgot to take photos of before putting them in the case at the Sr. Center - a grey & white marl in a Feather & Fan pattern & a light blue mohair with a little K2tog, YO lace around the bottom.
In other news, we've had frost so the garden is gone and only the peace rose in a protected corner by the front porch is still blooming. The trees are changing into their fall wardrobe of golds, reds & oranges and a few are already bare heralding the start of the grey season of winter. Time for homemade soup, afghans & more needlework.
