October's Projects

Hello everyone,
 Here we are in November already. I love fall. I love the way everything looks and how the holidays are just around the corner. I can't believe we are coming up to the end of 2013 soon. I have been busy this year. I feel like we spend our afternoons running around trying to keep up with everything. Autumn is in swimming lessons on Mondays and Wednesdays. She also joined Brownies this year and I am helping with the troop. I enjoy it though. Autumn is growing up fast and I don't want to miss a minute of it. With everything going on, I haven't felt like I have gotten much crafting done, then I looked back on the month and realized that I had actually made a few things.
 The first was a pot holder. More of a trivet really, you would burn yourself if you picked up a hot pot.
I made this for the Everything Zen group that I am a part of on Ravelry. It is from this pattern.
I also made some Elf Slippers. I didn't like this pattern at all. It was part of our Elf Slipper CAL.
I have two little girls in the nursery at work that both turned one. I made each of them hats.

If anyone is interested, let me know and I will write up the patterns.
I made a cowl from this pattern

I also made a hooded cowl for a Christmas present. I really like this pattern

Last, but not least, I knitted a scarf. I am really proud of this one. I don't like how knit things roll up when you make a project with the stockinette stitch, so one Sunday I sat and browsed through Ravelry and tried several stitch patterns before coming up with this. I cast on 33. Then I k1, p1 across, ending with k1.  On the other side I did the opposite. p1, k1 across.. I love how it turned out. I gave it to Autumn. We showed to my boss/friend Heather and she loved it. How sweet is my daughter? She gave it to her.

It is ribbed, but doesn't really look ribbed until you pull it apart. I think I need to make a hat to match and work on my knitting skills. I am loving knitting. Switching to the Continental method made all difference for me. I really want to make something other than a scarf and a hat may be the ticket.
 I hope you are all enjoying the weekend. I will talk to everyone soon. :)



  1. Wow, Kashi, you've made some fabulous things! That little girl with the hat on is adorable.. and so is your daughter! The knitted scarf is amazing, I've used that pattern with good results for it laying flat, too. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  2. Well done with the knitting Kashi, looks fabulous! A hat would look nice with it. The yarn is beautiful. All your other projects look great too. You have been busy.
