The little cool-off we’ve been having for the past week has gotten me really excited about fall. I think this fall is going to be extra wonderful and special. I have lots of grand plans – we’ll see if I can make them all happen. What are your favorite things about fall? I love the coffee! And going to fall festivals with the husband! And leaves! And sitting outside having dinner by the chiminea! And soup! And coats, and turtlenecks, and gloves, and hats, and scarves! Oh my, I can hardly wait. I think a new coat is in store this year, hopefully one like this.. in fact, here’s a little fall inspiration board of what’s on my current wish list.
Here are photos of some of the scarves I’ve made this year. Scarves modeled by Renee of GreenerMe and photographed by miss Samantha. Hope they inspire you to get excited about fall also. I’ll be listing them in the shop next week. And until next time, I’ll just be knitting away..
What a lovely, sunny Tuesday it is! I’ve been working away on that *last* website that I’m building as a portfolio for my artwork / prints / my surprise new project. It’s soso close to being done – just waiting on the transfer from our hosting company (up to 72 hours!). In the meantime, I have set up a shop on bigcartel for my artwork. I love Etsy dearly, but it just didn’t seem to be the best fit for my prints. I’m not closing down shop there, just trying out something new for a bit.
Speaking of new – here are some of the lovely captures that my dear friend Miss Sam Lamb took of some of my scarves.. I’m not going to list them all in the shop until a bit closer to fall – because, what kind of crazy person would possibly buy a scarf on these 95 degree days? In any case, know that I’ve been spending a lot of time working on new scarves for the fall – in fact, I’ve spent more than one evening in the last week sitting out by the pool knitting up some new lovelies.
I can’t wait to be done building these websites and doing all of this computer work so I can get back into the studio and make some of these ideas floating around in my head into real things to show you all! And I also can’t wait to join some of my favorite ladies for an evening of coffee and knitting tonight!
