Ode To Fall Jacket

So I'm not much of a blogger - but I am a knitter and have produced lots, but I never get around to photographing them. But tonight, for your viewing pleasure, my hot-off-the-needles jacket.

Last year when I was raking leaves and enjoying all the reds, oranges, greens and brown, and the way the leaves all overlapped, I decided to design a sweater that had that spirit. Well this is it - it took a long time to find the right yarn (Silk Garden) and decide how to capture the spirit of the leaves at different angles and directions.

Penguin Sweaters

Hi Everyone,

I thought I'd let you all see what the well-dressed penguin is wearing these days in Astralia. Here's a link to an article,
but although they certainly do look like fashionistas, the reason is very practical and sad. It is a way of helping their bodies cope with the traumas of oil spills.

Coolest Holiday Store Window Decoration

We were in Munich at the end of November and our last day there one of the department stores did their holiday windows. This was by far the best - the needles moved and she concentrated. Never dropped a stitch!

Preemie and Newborn Hats

Pam is trying to collect 250 baby caps by the end of October so we've just finished 12 to help her reach the goal. Here is a photo of them before I ship them out.

The 3-Sock Pair

Finally - the famous 3-sock pair. I'll bet you were beginning to wonder whether they exist. Notice I laid them out in sort of a spoke pattern. Speaking of patterns, there's something else to notice - the foot is a different yarn than the cuffs. That is a design feature. My DH stopped by my LYS and surprised me with some yarn from the sale bin. He didn't realize that the reason these yarns were in there were that they were orphans and that you needed 2 50 gr balls for a pair, not one. Hence the 2 yarn sock was developed. So I guess these are the 2 yarn 3 sock pair!
