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

Gorgeous teddy. I have been doing a lot of knitting, making cardigans and jumpers for the grandchildren!
Love those cushions, you have inspired me to get the crochet hooks out as well!

Marianne said...

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

Susan, would you mind if I write a promo post about your blog on my blog? I may have to use a few of your photos if that's alright (those will be linked to your blog) and I'd also like to link your shop to it.
