October 1 early morning

Knitting and quilting for the weekend.

During the weekend I want to do the block for the month.My fabric choice mostly consists of Kaffe Fassett fabrics.The background is from quiltersbasics.It seems the block is not so difficult to do.

The newist knitting project I started on our knitting café at work is a scarf.A simple pattern k 2 purl 2.For an hour we were sitting knitting and chatting.Very nice and very relaxing .The scarf I started is going to be a Christmas gift for a friend.You know it's not more than 3 months and I want to give a little small home made gift to each of them,mostly a "warm gift" to friend here in the north of Europe..

More in blue

The course we had last weekend was about dying and printing on recycled fabrics.The item we did was a book cover to our "book" for notes, ideas,drawings.....
The autumn is here and some bluebells can be found in the garden.But the nights are cold so they have hard times.Are they still fresh tomorrow?

198-yds-of-heaven a shawl I'm knitting

a free pattern on

The yarn is handdyed on Tunagarn.It's going to be a warm shawl in the winter but maybe not a shawl for a party.I know I have not knitted the patterns 100% right but it's going to be ready until the weekend and maybe beautiful.Maybe we could call it "art-knitting".
