Some Knitting

 This might not be a typical Autumn flower but it is Autumn and it is a flower! 
(hibiscus, 8" across)
I made one orange and brown dishcloth using the garterlac pattern
and then because I was mostly out of the orange cotton, 
I am making a brown in the basket weave pattern
 and I will crochet around the outside with the remaining orange.
 This is another bloom in the yard, a Roselle bloom, also in the hibiscus family.
(6" across)
 It is a milder color like the yarn I am using for the sock scraps blanket.
I decided to add another row to the side of the blanket--
I am stacking them right on top of each other along the right side!
Simple knitting for me right now.


  1. Lots of yarny goodness going on there. Up here I need to get some yarny goodness going! Think I am hitting a slump, eek!!

  2. Gorgeous hibiscus. Such pretty colors. I like all of your knitting and I see you're like me and don't like to waste yarn. I have three bags of small balls of yarn. Cotton, sock yarns and worsted from the mittens. I do try to use them up but the bags seem to get much fuller than emptier!
    Your mitered square blanket is coming along beautifully.

  3. I had a miserable day yesterday with a headache from all this wind and cold rain. I'm into simple at the moment too while I recover my bearings. It was so dark yesterday it was like midnight all day. This fall has been the pits weather-wise.

  4. Ooh, those blooms are fabulous. I can't imagine an 8" flower. My knitting is all about easy and simple now, too. I don't want to think about anything - just knit.

  5. I love your orange and brown dishcloth!

  6. That hibiscus flower looks like candy — gorgeous!

  7. love those squares.. which pattern are you using? xx
