Sneak Peek into Fall

I'm often thinking one or two seasons ahead. So, despite the fact that it is the middle of summer, the last week or so I've been thinking of things for fall. I thought I'd share a bit of what I've been working on. Here are my fall themed works in progress.

fall autumn knit pumpkin lace candle holder orange white yarn

Just like last year, I'm making mini pumpkins. I'm adding a few new colors including a deep reddish orange seen here with a basic orange pumpkin, both partially finished. Also, I thought I'd try candle cozies. The one on the left is a pattern from Debbie Bliss's "A Knitter's Year" and the others are forms of some lace patterns in a stitch pattern book that I have. They are fairly quick to knit and look really pretty. Plus they are a great way to use old glass jars. I can't wait to see what they look like with candles burning inside them! I'll have more pictures later in the year.

  1. Can you tell me what yarn this is (deeper pumpkin - redish orange) ? I'm looking for this color for a project in my book I'm working on. But need it in a sport yarn. Thanks!

    1. It's Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Worsted. The color is called Rooibos Heather. Here's a link to the web page:

      They do have a sport weight version of this yarn, but that color is not available in sport weight. They may have some other sport weight yarns in a similar color though.
