Perfect for this fall Season is this deep Purple plum colour.
I could think of many projects to knit up…if my time would allow it.
Special Order for Carla A. Canonico of
“A Needle Pulling Thread” and KNITmuch.
Carla told me she loves her purples and is looking forward to seeing the once I have dyed for her.
“It has to be the right purple”
I believe it is the one just like the Italian dark Plums. The one we can find in most grocery stores in the past view weeks.
So here are a view skeins dyed and drying up in the last week of summer. Truly love how beautiful they look in the sunshine
After we had a nice view days doing things around the house over the Labour Day Weekend…part of hurricane Harvey must have made its way up to us …with rain and Thunder. So the grounds are all wet this Tuesday Morning. A perfect day to doing some more cleaning I thought and getting ready for the colder season again.
So as I am waiting for the water to drain from Hot Tub ….I noticed a cluster of beautiful Mushrooms had grown on our front walk way…so delicate and pretty.
See how only 20 minutes of lighting makes a difference in the picture ….and one hour later they are all drying up and shriveled up looking…..I guess by noon they are gone again…
So two hours have past since I started this post ….and you should see how black the sky is right now…..lol I am getting soaked by rain and hail….
Oh nooo….I just noticed, as I was adding the Berner Oberland Pullover
I looks like I totally neglected to show you one of my latest pattern published in A Needle Pulling Thread in the Winter 2016/2017 issue that was published in April 2017 .
Available in three different sizes and knit in worsted weight yarn. I love working with cables and try to add one in all my designs.

Never expected this when my husband and I looked at stepping-stones last evening.
Don’t think I ever had turkeys that close to me…smiles.
Black Spanish Turkeys
Love how regal they both held up there heads….look at how amazing there colouring is!
Even had lots of geese waddling around us as we wandered around with the owner looking at stones I thought…!
Now I am interested in these Turkeys telling me how it is living here….hahah…gobble gobble.
Chicken where all in there coop and just out of curiosity (Thought of you Ave) I ask if he had Silkies or a Giant chicken? But he did not have them anymore.
What an experience to see ….
Blowing in the summer wind it is for sure…
This Origami Shrug by Melissa Wehrle is so soft and light. It has been on my mind for way to long to knit this shrug up. Since I have the book now for several years I thought it really is time to start knit it up too…
Can you tell I am Soooo loving it .
I used 5 skeins of my absolute favourite yarn called Louet MerLin Sport Weight a total of 1142 meters where knit up with needle US 6 -4.0mm in the Aqua colour. So sad though this yarn is now discontinued ;-(((
If I would knit this Origami Shrug again I would be to use my KnitswissYarns in sport weight. Really think it would be stunning too.
Totally in love with this Origami Shrug.
When it came to sewing the back together I put the stitches on two separate needles and used the Kitchener this way…no one will see a seam!
(Now if you are going to knit this one up, look at the pattern errata there is a correction that is important to know! )
We celebrate 150 Year Canada this year …
has been designed to honour this event. Although I have seen the Maple Leaf Tulip in pictures only at the time of me disining this cowl. I too was inspired to reflect it in my knitting and design….with planting in the fall of 2016, 50 of the Maple Leaf Tulip bulbs.
So after I had a look though my already existing yarn stash I found several smaller balls of fingering weight of my own KnitswissYarns. My colours are perfect for this tulip colours and concept. I am excited to tell you the pattern was published in “A Needle Pulling Thread” Summer edition 2017

Ohh what can I knit with all this leftover yarn?
A topic we all know to well…we work on one project and then either we do not have enough yarn or too much. But what can we use that for to nice to just throw away…I think.
I am laughing at times. I have so many gorgeous yarns in my stash that are waiting for YES…
“That Perfect Project”
Believe me, I will find one just give me time.
However I tend to go to my leftover yarns and use them up most of the time.
I just can’t see it sitting around to long …As my mother would say when we chat on Skype. Oh Jacqueline “How many scarfs or shawls do you need?” LOL never enough winters are cold here in Canada… same as in Switzerland just much longer. You can belive me add-on one month on each ende of the winter then you have Canada weather easily….
Anyway let’s forget about the weather, back to knitting I really love to just be creative and work something up as I go.

A Neck roll form I had around the home and so it became my
