I Feel Like Alice…

I walked into my sewing room this morning and I feel like Alice who just fell down the rabbit hole.  I snapped some quick photos to show you what I mean.  Only one photo makes sense, and that is Gina who is all posed and dressed, waiting for the weather to change so that she can have her picture taken outdoors in her new fall outfit, the last one.

Do these make any sense to you?

studio 09-27-15 246Fabric that is ready to fall over because it is twice as high as it should be?  Going one way is Christmas, the other way is my new stuff, the other way is more new stuff, then the fabric that is supposed to be there?  See, total confusion.

sweet 'n cozy fall 237In addition to taking photos today, I think that I had better do some straightening up, don’t you?  Maybe I will have some “nice and neat” studio pictures to show you.

Hopefully, your day is making more sense to you.  Enjoy your Sunday and thanks for reading!


Cotton Candy Anyone?

I never liked eating cotton candy much at all (no idea why, all kids do), but this yarn I like love very much.  Whenever I knit with this pink mohair/silk yarn I am reminded of cotton candy in those food stalls at the fair, fun and happy times.  Come to think about it, I have always been in a good mood when I am knitting with this pink yarn.

Today I collected photos of my cardigans in this sweet color.  There aren’t as many as there are in the white, but still fun to see all together in a group.

This is the first weekend of fall (in this part of the world).  Hope you have a great one!

Bye for today and thanks for reading!


Does Anyone Feel Like a Little Bit of Snow?

Fuzzy white mohair yarn that look like snow, that is.  I’ve used this yarn for little cardigan sweaters a LOT.  I was wondering how much, so I gathered up my photos and made a little collection here.  They are not all winter sweaters, but even in the middle of summer they’ve always reminded me of fluffy snow.

I’m not quite ready for all this yet, are you?  I’d much rather look at fluffy white snow-like sweaters.

Thanks for reading along today.  Have a fabulous Friday!
