There’s a definite nip in the air and the leaves on the trees are starting to turn colors. Whee! With an adieu to summer (I’ve never been keen on that season, except when I lived in England), I am going through my yarn stash and deciding on what to use for which project. More than likely, I will finish one before I run out to the yarn shops and purchase some more, work on a few from that, and start the cycle again – LOL! I’m currently working on a pair of autumn colored socks – no, not self-striping yarn – of which you may or may not have read. By and large, it’s mostly bitching. I have a love-hate relationship going on with socks, but with each pair I knit, I learn something new and feel more comfortable with the process. Besides, I have a whole bunch of sock yarn.¹
I would like to do another crochet or knit a-long, but am having trouble deciding exactly what. The last one I did, Pumpkin Face Throw was actually pretty fun…for me! I did get some feedback from crocheters having trouble with making the square, and from what I understand, they were seasoned crafters. That had me kinda stumped. So, I think I’m going to throw some easy crochet and knit-a-long projects out there to give everybody a sense of accomplishment – so much better that way! And I will endeavor to post my progress as I did last time. I think I’ve found a beginner knit pattern that all of us could do and benefit from, but I am going to sleep on it, as specialty needles are required.
Also, I wanted to throw out a reminder that I do have a Crafting Links tab on my blog with free patterns that I find online and if you click on the parent tab itself (don’t click on the drop-down options), you’ll find I have a form you can fill out to contribute your discoveries or patterns. I do have a pinterest page that has more patterns and pretty pictures of projects I will never be able to start, let alone, finish. C’est la vie.
See you in the funny pages!
