It’s Starting

It’s starting.  The its-beginning-to-feel-like-fall-so-now-I-really-want-to-knit-even-more-of-all-the-things thing.

I’m totally obsessed with this High Plains poncho pattern.  I’m going to knit it in this yarn that I’m also totally obsessed with.  I’m using the same yarn to knit my recently cast on Terra shawl:

And it’s the same yarn I used to knit my Cozy wrap last year:

I just love it because it is 50% alpaca, 50% wool and so soft and……..just nice.  And now I’ve got it in my head that the High Plains poncho would be a great thing to wear when we go to the NYS Sheep and Wool Festival (aka Rhinebeck) in late October.  Can you see where this obsession is headed?  I’m feeling like I’ve just given myself a challenge.  Stay tuned.

There is also this that I’m working on but can’t really tell you about yet:

And, did you know that Christmas is coming and that if I want to make any knitted gifts I should probably get started?  There’s that.

And this week there was this:

We think we’ve fixed it, but it was a little nerve-wracking imagining the plumbing/repair bills that may have seriously cut into my yarn budget.

    The High Plains and Terra patterns are very interesting – the poncho looks very drapery and flattering. Good to know that you are a fan of the Lana d’Oro.
