I finished my Sashya scarf and loved knitting it so much that I completed two more. Here they are all together looking so pretty. The short two are for my girls and the long one is for me.

Here they are up close.

I told my mother in law and mom about the yarn and showed them the finished scarves. They insisted we make a trip to the nearest Lens Mill Store to purchase more Sashya yarn. When got there we noticed that other yarn companies have come out with there own versions of Sashya yarn. I picked up some of Patons Pirouette, which is so cute with it’s little pom-pom fringe. None of us were very impressed with Bernat’s version called Twist and Twirl. The netting is boring and too small – my mother in law commented that it looks like a bath scrubbie when it’s knit up.

Here is the start of my first Pirouette Scarf:

And a close up the cute little pom-poms.

And last but not least the wool I ordered for my winter project came from the UK today! It’s Debbie Bliss Rialto 4 ply superwash merino wool. The pattern is in her lastest magazine – it’s the black and white fair isle sweater. I couldn’t find any links to the pattern so you’ll have to be patient. But here’s the beautiful wool that I just want to lay my head on and go to sleep because it’s so soft.


I’m pretty excited about Fall this year. Although it’s the busiest time of year for me with several birthdays and all the Fall and early Winter holidays, it’s also the time of year I’m most inspired to knit.

I finished up a few projects over the summer and ended up frogging a sock I was unhappy with. I made the girls mittens for the Fall time and lovely scarf for myself. The scarf is made from Sashay yarn. A friend of mine introduced me to this yarn a few weeks ago and kindly gave my a ball. I whipped up my scarf over the weekend in about 4-6 hrs. Of course I was immediately addicted and went out and purchase two more balls to make scarves for the girls.

My next project, after the scarves for the girls, is a pattern from the latest Debbie Bliss magazine. I’m waiting for the yarn to be delivered. There will be more on this project as it progresses.
