Getting Ready for Fall Season Knitting



Well it's mid August, I've finished several projects and now I'm turning my attention to those projects that I'd like to complete and use this fall. The first photo is a beautiful triangular shawl that I call October Shawl. It's the simplest of patterns. Basically Cast on three stitches, knit 2, YO, and Knit accross. I've added a row of YO's about 30 stitches in to add some interest to the knitting. This yarn is really wonderful. It's called Paca de Seda by The Alpaca Yarn company in Autumn Orchard. The colors are the truly wonderful colors of fall foliage. Shades of Green and Rust. This yarn is 80% Alpaca and 20% silk so it feels so soft. I know it's going to be a favoriate shawl for October weather.
Next is a scarf in a wonderful shade of buttery, golden yellow. It's also a color of true fall foliage. The pattern is from the December 2008 issue of Simply Knitting. This is a British magazine that I find at Barnes & Noble. I really enjoy their patterns.


The last photo is a scarf using the mistake rib pattern. It's made with a bulky weight wool by Cascade yarn. The photo does not show the color well. It really is a rust not an orange. It matches the gloves from last week's post perfectly.

So those are my top three projects to finish by the end of September. I also pulled out two baby blankets that I have started and I'm still working on several pairs of socks including the Wanida Socks from the Cookie A Sock Innovation book. Still need to finish my pleated neckline top for September. So, I have plenty of projects in progress. Hope to show you a finished one soon!
