beautiful fall knitting line up

October 21, 2018

Here's my beautiful fall knitting line up!

My grandson has outgrown all of last winters sweaters so I plan to make at least 4, maybe 5 for this year.
Knitting baby sweaters for Carter is one of the most fun things I do!
I've finished the Honey Bee Jacket and now I'm onto Beeare by Georgie Hallam

My next baby sweater will use this crazy colored yarn.
 It's so wild I can only envision it as the most plain of all garter sweaters:
French Macaroon by The Noble Thread.
I have never used yarn like this ever and I really don't know what to expect!

I'm so close to finishing these next sweaters; just the sleeves to go on all three!
I promised myself I wouldn't start a new project until these were done.
 For Circe by Isabell Kraemer I'm using Rowan Softyak DK and Kidsilk Haze knit double.
Lovely together.

Garter Yoke Cardigan by Melissa LaBarre in Tusken Knits Cabin DK in Pigwidgeon.
I hope to wear the buttons in the back. I usually try to complete all the finishing before I work on the sleeves.
This helps me to get a better idea of how long to make the sleeves.

Darne by Lisa Richardson in Rowan Valley Tweed. I love this yarn so much. It's a very fine and elegant tweed.
After I finish the shoulder I'll finish all the seaming then make the neckline ribbing.
Lastly I'll pick up stitches around the arm scythe and knit the sleeves using short rows to shape the top,
then I'll knit them in the round to the wrist.

 With this pretty Amelie from Illumani I'll be making a few sets of fingerless gloves for Christmas gifts.

 Thank you so much for popping by.
