Holding on to Autumn

Hello all!! I don't know about you, but these past few months have just been flying by. It feels like we should just be entering into Autumn, not seeing the end of it. I am determined to hold on to the last few days/weeks with all I have before giving into Christmas mania:) Usually I am excited for the holidays to come, but it seems like it is being pushed on us earlier and earlier every year and I just need things to slow down a bit. I do admit that I started looking at a few Christmas things this past week, but I'm planning on waiting until next week before I really get into it.

So instead of working on Christmas related crafting, I've been working on a couple Autumn(ish) themed projects.

1st is...

These are pumpkin shaped wash cloths and they will be a house warming/Thanksgiving hostess gift for my mother-in-law. I had to look up a couple of the stitch instructions on this, but overall it has been an easy project. I just have a bit to do on the second one, have to figure out how to attach the vine and then weave in all the ends:) The pattern is free at KnitPicks.

The second project is...

Yes, I have an orange thing going on!! This scarf will be for me as I only have one scarf and it was the first knitting project I did. It's fine, but not as pretty as this and I wanted something in a pretty Autumn color:) I am using Heartland by Lion's Brand in colorway Yosemite. This pattern is called Chunky Fir Tree Lace Scarf, and can be found on Ravelry for just over $1.00 USD.

Hope everyone is enjoying their Autumn (or spring) to the fullest!!


  1. I was very late to admit that autumn had actually arrived. I hold on to summer as long as possible. But the weather is much colder now here. Roll on spring!

  2. What fantastic knitting projects. Love them. Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. The pumpkin cloths are SO cute! I'll have to get that pattern and make some for my aunt. She loves autumnal-themed décor.

    The pattern and yarn color is nice. I've not used Heartland yarn but I really like that color. I'll have to check that out too.

    Hope your Thanksgiving was a blessed one.

  4. Dark green with orange look like wonderful combination of colors.
