Autumn....





















Autumn knitting and a crochet catch up...

Can you see those little stitches around the edges of the sleeves up there?
It could be the work of a little elf....or simply sock yarn working its magic...
either way this is a little bear whose definitely feeling much cosier 

My new bedroom cushion is made from leftover Rooster Almerino Aran
which is a long time favourite yarn and I'm so happy that it hasn't been wasted
I used the ever popular Sunburst Granny Square 
on both the front and back which can be found here
(using just the first 4 rounds)

...loving these autumn evenings...♥

..lots of knitting in progress at the moment...
and I'm going to search my yarn stash to make a new crochet cushion
..hopefully something in autumn shades...

Fingers crossed I should be posting a little more often from now on
I've missed not being here over recent weeks
I appreciate the slow, peaceful pace of blogging ever more these days :-)

♥ x

Hope you've had a good start to your autumn projects
and are enjoying a happy, crafty week everyone

Back soon

Take care

  11. Susan, everything is so pretty...first, your space looks so inviting and cheery. I can imagine enjoying a cup of tea while taking in all your pretty creations. Second, I just love your knitting creations. Since I'm not a knitter, I am enthralled with your talent. Especially the fact that you create your own patterns. Your crocheted pillows are beautiful!! Now I do crochet, but haven't in quite some time. I love the colors you've chosen and look forward to some autumn colors, as well. Thank you for sharing your wonders.

    Blessings,

    Marianne xo
