Off the Needles
Basic Cuff up Mittens - free pattern by Patti Pierce Stone


Peeta: free garter stitch, short row shawl pattern- mixes worsted and fingering weight yarns on size 8s

Tony the monster from the book More KnitWits which I got from the library. The pattern is by Katie Boyette. Shown in blue and black stripes. Super cute. I can see my nephews liking him.

Boot Toppers- I’m contemplating just creating my own pattern. I figure I’ll measure the circumference of my upper calf, do a gauge swatch, and then just whip together a very basic ribbed and cabled pattern.

From the Armchair

Urban Forest Knits

  • 5 pattern collection in eBook by Judy Marples 
  • Definitely take a look at this pattern collection! It would be a great addition to your library.
  • Don’t forget that this eBook is one of the prizes available for the Sept/Oct section of our holiday KAL

Dishcloth Diva by Deb Buckingham

Crafty Adventures

Last Saturday was woodchopping weekend at my house!
Boys- chop wood
Girls- made some food, sewing and knitting by the fire inside.

Fabric Pumpkin Tutorial

On a Happy Note

Fitting into smaller jeans (2 sizes smaller!) Hooray!

Quote of the Week

Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.
-George Eliot
