November Needles

I haven't jumped into Fall decorating this year.  I don't even have a pumpkin.  I keep meaning to pick up some gourds, or find some colored branches for the mantel.  We did go on a walk in the park with the Puppy and I was taken with all the Fall color.  this little acorn made me smile.

A little taste of Fall

Instead of trolling the pumpkin patch for the perfect gourds, or lining up at the garden center for the best mums around, I can't seem to pull myself away from the knitting!!  After a month of doing almost nothing else, I only have the collar left of my very first sweater.  I'd show you a pic but I'm going to have the big reveal once I'm actually done (hopefully withing the week).  Here's the sweater I'm making though.

I am also teaching a knitting class that starts today!  It's a class for 3rd and 4th graders and I can't wait to get started.  We're going to start out making these:

St Catherine's Bracelet Test Run

They are super easy and I'm hoping will give the girls some (almost) instant gratification for their new skills. After bracelet making we will move on to making a little bag.  (I seem to be all about accessories for this class)  It will be knitted up like this.

Little clutch before felting

Then we are going to felt them into this:

Little Clutch felted

It still needs a button for the clasp but you get the idea.  It would be really cute with some embroidery or embellishment too.  I have yarn on the brain people and I just can't stop myself.


  1. How about a transatlantic tutorial - all I can manage is to crochet afghans ;) I'm desperate to knit some cushions ( US pillows?) for my sofa
    love the sweater - can't wait to see it

  2. Ella and Lucy loved their bracelet that you made for they. I got to see them this weekend.


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you.
