I decided it would be fun to show you some of my September through the lens of my Instagram feed. (Feel free to follow me!) It isn’t a detailed commentary on my month, but it gives a fun (at least to me) view of what I’ve been doing this month.
I’ve come to the conclusion that fall is probably my favorite season. So I’m making myself a fall 2014 to-do list. I’m posting it here, and I’ll be updating it periodically on my blog and occasionally on my instagram feed.
- Visit Grand Rapids.
- Apple picking
- Make a homemade apple pie
- Pumpkin ale
- Long walks
- Cozy scarves and cowls…maybe at least one that I made?
- Boots and jeans
- Caramel apples
- Pumpkin pie
- Pumpkin spice lattes
- Photoshoot in a leaf pile…maybe for a new design?
- Fall cookies
- A nature walk with the camera
- Make a sweater in November (National Sweater Month)
So that’s my fall 2014 bucket list thus far. What should I add? What’s on yours?
Over the past few months, I’ve been slowly but surely working on a new pattern. It’s a cowl, and I’ve named it Evelyn. My first design sample is done; actually it has been for a while. And I thought I’d share two snaps of it with the Internet. I’m working on making a second cowl at the moment to make sure that the pattern is accurate, and then I’m hoping to have it ready for publication by late October.
But for now…meet Evelyn! I knit her on size 5 needles with a bit less than a skein of Tanis Fiber Arts puple label in the gorgeous colorway Stained Glass from a December Etsy update.
Happy Saturday, and happy knitting!
