fall knitting

It's about time to decide whether I'm knitting any gifts for Christmas, and for whom, and what will it be?  And which yarn?  

I've just finished a sweater for myself, which I'm excited about.  I'm in no hurry for cold, but when it does arrive, I'm going to be ready.  Ends are being woven in, today, and then it may live on a mannequin at the yarn shop for a week or two.  I've knitted several items of my own design; I have four new patterns available through Windy Valley, and will have another two or three at my local yarn shop next month.  If you went to Stitches, you may have seen the Windy Valley pieces.  A photo shoot is in the works soon!  Unfortunately, I don't have a lot of finished pictures, but I do have a few in progress pictures.

One of my new patterns, Margin, a 650 yard shawl.  This one's my current favorite...  

This scrumptious yarn is going to be Asunder, pattern from Lisa Mutch on Ravelry.  I'm about halfway done.

I'm looking forward to telling you more about my patterns; I've just got to get some details lined up, including what-would-I-wear-them-with? for the photo shoot.  In the meantime, we are getting ready for Back to School stuff at our house, and looking forward to some fresh salsa!

What are you doing this week?

Ooooh, I can't wait to see what you're working on. And get some shawl ideas! I see them everywhere and I'd love to make one, I'm just not sure I'd ever wear it. ???

And you just had to mention the C-word. I've been thinking about it a little. I thought it would be fun to make the five grown kids in our family some animal hats because they're all always goofing off, but then I realized this is a Christmas that they probably won't all be home at the same time. It's no fun if you can't have a goofy photo shoot!

I just know your patterns will be gorgeous, Karen! Salsa sounds like a great idea - loved your watermelon salsa which I've made twice! Now I have a glut of tomatoes - so you know what I'll be doing this week!

Mmmmm, Margin - so beautifully done! Can't wait to see the rest! Interesting how your scrumptious yarn is actually a tomato color - who knew!?
