Fall is Here

With Fall officially upon us, I have two great cold weather projects to share with you today.

These are Heidi's version of "Druid Mittens" (pattern by Jared Flood from Vogue Knitting Fall 2008) knit in FF Superwash Merino Wool Sock Yarn in the Lust colorway.

Aren't they great?! Check out the lovely details in this closeup:

You can see more of Heidi's beautiful work on Ravelry where she is Saccade. And I do mean more! Heidi has more than 200 projects posted on Ravelry so if you're looking for inspiration for your next project, go have a look!

Next up is Erica's One Row Scarf (from the Yarn Harlot) knit with FF DK Alpaca/Wool Yarn in the Bountiful colorway.

For those of you who've visited here for a while, you may recall that this is one of my favorite simple patterns for a winter scarf. It's a one-row repeat, which means you can knit a bit here and there without missing a beat and you also get a lovely scarf that's the same on both front and back.

Such a simple little piece yet so lovely! For more of Erica's beautiful work, pop on over to her blog or visit her on Ravelry where she is Dreamsinfiber.

A big Thank You to Heidi and Erica for sharing their work!

Beautiful knitting! Isn't "Bountiful" amazing, the way it knits up?

Boy, if I were to put a color designation to lust, I think the mitten color would definitely be it. They are gorgeous, by the way.

Both mittens and scarf are beautiful. The One row scarf captivated me and I rushed to Yarn Harlot to download the "pattern".
