summer is gone, fall is coming soon!

where has the summer gone? 
august came and went and it happened all within a single blink of an eye..
I love September. I love the fall. It will be awhile yet before the weather turns cool here and all things are brown and very dry everywhere you go because of the heat. 
No matter though, the chai spice tea has made its way out of the cupboard. I can't drink it during the summer, doesn't seem right somehow. Pumpkin spice is everywhere all of a sudden. I love it!
Its been awhile since my last post, but not much has been happening. 
I have been here, knitting, cross stitching and reading away. Re-reading Outlander and watching the tv show.. sigh …all I can say is kilts, yes Please!
On my nightstand are a few titles I am enjoying at the moment. Halfway through The Winter Witch right now.
Completed a couple of projects and others were started, stopped and frogged.
 Sometimes you think you have it right but half way through you realize its just isn't the right yarn or color.. 
My latest finished project is the Whispering Pines shawl. I started it and finished it within one weekend.. sometimes projects go so fast for me, can't put it down, like a good book when I will read to the early hours of the morning... It flew off the needles. Plus I love the inspiration behind the pattern. Inspired by on of my favorite poems..
the feeling I have when I am in the middle of something I love doing like reading or knitting….
 miles to go before I sleep!
Another project off the needles recently is my Clothilde shawl. I always love working with quince & co yarn… I have said it before but it blocks so nicely.
A WIP at the moment is Aranami.
 I have been wanting to do this shawl for such a long time now. Such a clever pattern and I just like so much the look of it… So many color possibilities. I love all the finished projects.
Knit picks palette seemed perfect for this particular pattern because of all the color choices.
For a little more color I also cast on the Shaelyn shawl. I have had this pattern in my queue for awhile and I am also using knit picks palette for this project. 
Autumn Heather is the name of the color and I love it, its so beautiful to me. I just love rust colors so much. 
I hope you are having a lovely weekend and please enjoy my playlist this week!

  1. September is one of my favorite months too. But then again I love fall :)
    Beautiful photos and I love all your shawl!!

  2. I love all your shawls! I've been looking at the Aranami one over and over - but I can't figure out if it is a hard one to do or not! But the color possibilities on that one would make you want to knit it many times I think!

  3. I have kilts on the brain because of Outlander!!! That man never made a kilt look so good! ...I am going to start the books soon! Loving all your projects. Just beautiful!
