Fall is coming

The last few evenings have been very cool and it reminds me that fall is coming. My favourite time of the year. It's cold enough to wear knits but not so cold that we get snow.

Here are some new patterns for fall.
The perfect seamless layering piece, worked from the bottom up with beautiful cables at center front and back. 
Pattern: Buckingham (purchase on Ravelry)
Yarn: 6 or 7 skeins of Chalet from Classic Elite. Chateau or Palace will also work.

The Striped Linen Stitch Wrap and Scarf from Churchmouse (pattern available on Ravelry. Our patterns have arrived in BC so we might have them in the store by next weekend.)
Our fervent love of linen stitch continues. 
The eight-color wrap and four-color scarf take on a convincingly woven look. Knitted length-wise, with knotted self-fringe, they look like they’re right off the loom. The ‘wrong’ side has a more knitterly seed stitch look that’s gorgeous, too. Seemingly random striping sequences are quite forgiving—if you run out of a color, just throw in another! 
We’ve designed the Wrap & Scarf for a DK-weight gauge yarn. For a woolly wrap with lots of drape, we’ve picked Rowan Felted Tweed.

What a great vest. The Flat Rib Popover from Churchmouse.
Whether you wear it with denim or tailored pieces, this simple layer will have you dressed and out the door in a flash. It tapers imperceptibly to the hem for a boxy shape that doesn’t flare at the bottom. Dropped shoulders create a flattering line. The subtly textured rib pattern results in a smooth, flat finish that’s nice inside out, too.
My throw is finished. Tomorrow we're going to needle felt the beginning and ending tails so they're invisible. Then pictures on my bed. Now I'm back to the Bambara Wrap. It won't be finished for the Fair but it will be ready for Camp.
