What I'm Knitting

A few weeks ago I posted an inspirational posts with knitting ideas. You can read more of that here. One of the ideas was the Autumn Leaves.  I bought the pattern and I've been knitting some up.
Using left over balls of yarn, they are the perfect quick and easy knit.
I have them hanging up on my fireplace for now. As I knit more, I'll make a garland that can be used every year.

I have also been knitting away on my Zweig sweater. I am loving this knit. I have quickly become a Caitlin Hunter fan. I loved knitting her Sunset Highway and this sweater is proving to be the same for me. I'm using o-wool fingering in the Meadow Violet for the main color and the lace section is from Dancing Leaf Farm that I purchased at Rhinebeck. I wasn't sure about knitting the cable X pattern in the body. I don't like using a cable needle. It slows me down and I don't like the interruption in my knitting. But, the pattern has a link to a video that shows how to cable without a needle and I'm doing that. IT's easy peasy! So yes, my Zweig will have the X pattern.

I have also been knitting a few things for the farm. I'll have to take pictures of them!
Some cute little hats. Next up are Christmas gifts. I better get cracking!

Have a wonderful weekend and happy knitting!
