au boulot!

It's time to get a whole bunch of stuff done for the next holiday season to come!
It's a bit challenging to stay organized,
Especially when there's so much going on at work and at home!

But I try...
well...sort of.

I loved these against daylight.

My inspiration for this dozen was Autumn.
Not really the season per say, but more the colours that match an "autumn" type of person.
Around here we are really into season colours, thanks to my friend Hazel.

One of my co-workers is "an autumn"
I wanted to make a pair for her,
so lots of bronze, copper, mustard yellow, teal...and tomato red
to pick from in the shape she likes.

More to come, also in silver for spring and winter people!

Can you resist this song?


by Alexander

I can't!

It's such a soothing & inspiring song...turning to an obsession for me lately right.

knitting for Frances

My friend's baby is getting bigger each day and the temperatures are getting lower...

I finished this sweater a few weeks ago.

free pattern found on Ravelry
it's the Yoda sweater from Lion's brand

I think I need a better technique for sewing the sleeves together though,
it wasn't stretchy enough.
But I think she enjoyed it!

Not only this old dusty pink looks great on her,
but the little liberty ties are chewable!

PS: I modified the bottom edges
by adding some p2,k2 for first 4 rows on sleeves
(and 6 rows for body).
Yarn = Baby Llama
2 skeins 1/3
in antique rose #22

PPS: do you know a sewing technique for assembling sleeves to body
and keeping it stretchy?
