Then I knitted a bear cub beanie but it turned out to be newborn size and not grandchild size.
I finished the luxury yarn scarf I was struggling with last time. No big unraveling was needed
and I even figured out how to make the lace edge wider to use up all my yarn.
This is the same pattern I used for my beige scarf last year. this time I used bigger needles and the yarn was little heavier too, but both are from one 100 g skein.
In my enthusiasm for lace knitting I decided to use one of my daughter's leftover yarns. The curly skein on the left in front of the green yarn used to be a tightly crocheted wrist warmer. She didn't want me to crochet her a pair for it with the ball of unused yarn, so I washed the curly yarn and it straightened perfectly.
I knitted a cowl in the same lace pattern I used for the Kidsilk Mohair shawl this Summer.
The 3D effect disappeared totally when I damp stretched this one, and it grew in length too, but I just wrap it one more time around my neck or let it hang more.
It is time to replace the Summer flowers with Chrysanthemums. The cooler Autumn air feels SO refreshing after a too hot Summer.
