Top Ten Tuesday

1. Knitting Whimsy: this little guy is so cute found here.

2. Colorwork: Talk about color explosion, love this.

3. Embroidery: How about this for your next Christmas project?!

4. Knitting: Lovely. Rustic. Natural. French.

5. Yarn: Yarn pick for the day. This is so rustic looking and beautifully colorful at the same time. Rose    from Portugal dyed this yarn. Check her out at her blog.

6. Sweater Design: Here's an amazing sweater, Oshima by Jared Flood being modeled by Tanis Lavallee from Tanis Fiber Arts and done in her beautiful yarn TFA Blue Label in Atlantic and Red Label in Stained Glass.

7. Crochet:  Adorable doll by Lydia Tresselt.

8. Quilting: Bloom quilt by Amy Butler.

9. Felt work:  Weekend Getaway Satchel by Marta McCall.

10. Food: How about some apple cinnamon baked doughnuts with brown butter glaze! I know, this is not something I usually indulge in either, but it's that time of year, right? And how can you go wrong with anything from Joy the Baker?

Okay, those are my top ten for the day. Hope you all had a great weekend and you are enjoying the beautiful fall weather! 

Knitting updates: I am still working on my Oats cowl I showed you in the last post. I'm just finishing up the knit 1, purl 1 rib, will bind off and weave in my ends, and I'll be done!

The striped hat swatch I revealed a while back  is still waiting for me to figure out a pattern for it which I will do and will show you the results. I don't know about you, but I do struggle with finding enough hours in the day to get everything done. I guess it's called prioritizing, and it's something I need to get a handle one. Any pointers? This blog has been great for keeping me accountable though and that has been a very good thing!

The garter stitch coat is still a WIP. I have come to a stopping point (in other words, I'm stumped and don't know what to do). I'm at the point where I need to start the collar and can't quite figure out the directions. I. must. finish. it. 

//I'm going to leave you with this quote for the day:  

“Properly practiced, knitting soothes the troubled spirit, and it doesn't hurt the untroubled spirit either.”
