After two months, my Beaded Shallows scarf is now finished! First I must say that this design is very soothing with a stitch pattern that is easy to memorize and easy to knit, it’s just that I took way to long to finish it. Thank you Bonnie for a great pattern and thank you Darlene for inspiring me to finish mine :)
Pattern: Shallows designed by Bonnie Sennott, a.k.a. Blue Pennisula
Yarn: Pebble Sock by Black Trillium Fibre Studio in the color way Nautilus

Now I have to decide what to cast on next, the Hogwarts Express by Susan Ashcroft or Skipperling by Bonnie Sennott
Earlier this week I shared patterns that revolved around owls, and today I want to share a few patterns that revolve around acorns and ravens.
I love fall ! One thing I really love about fall is the changing of the colors, the acorns and the leaves. A few of these designs truly remind me of the essence of fall, and for some reason, this season also involves the use of ravens!

Hope you enjoyed, and until next time, happy knitting and crafting!
For some reason this time of year makes me think of owls. Maybe it has something to do with the fact the Family Channel is hosting a Harry Potter movie marathon or just that owls seem to be part of fall.
Today I’m sharing with you “owls” using basically the same cable stitch pattern but in all kinds of variations. Enjoy!

Until next time, happy knitting and crafting!
I finished my small cross stitch piece, which is now framed in a cute little 3 1/2″ by 3 1/2″ frame. This turned out liked I hoped and it is now sitting on my desk at work.
The only thing I would do different is use Gentle Art threads as the DMC is too dead. I did make a slight modification for the top and bottom insert rows, a straight line across and I used three strands of thread, one in the gold, the cream and the brown. It is straight in the frame, but the frame is a little off at the top.
I also finished one sock and used the mitten toe technique that I found in The Sock Knitter’s Handbook by Charlene Schurch and Beth Parrott. I have already casted on the mate and I’m just about finished with the cuff.
Have a super fun filled weekend!
Well I’ve done it, I’ve joined my first ever Mystery Sampler stitch along created by Lizzie Kate. Lizzie will be releasing clues to her newest mystery sampler, Things Unseen, over a period of three installments. The first clue will be the early part of November, followed by December and then January.

So, I’ve ordered my kit and now patiently wait :)
Wow, I can’t believe it’s already Wednesday. I really don’t have too much new to share other than the fact I am ready to start the toe to my sock. I really love the colors of this yarn and the way the striping is turning out.
I also am ready to start a very small stitching project that I’m thinking might look good on my desk at work.
I also purchased a pattern today that I’ve been itching to cast on called Fish Creek (Adult Version) by Melissa Schaschwary. This will be a quick knit as it is knitted up in bulky weight yarn and a size US 13 needle. The main thing, it’s top down, raglan sleeves and seamless.
