As The Leaves Turn

One changes from day to day...every few years one becomes a new being.--George Sand

No, this is not the start of a new soap opera! When the temperatures start cooling down, and the leaves begin to fall, I start knitting!

My latest is a Monet inspired scarf knitted with Moda Dea Ticker Tape yarn imported from Italy. Ticker tape yarn is aptly named because it is flat rather than round like traditional yarn. It was fun to work with and produces a knit that has some stretch to it. It is 100% Nylon. I made one for my girl who adores scarves--and a girl can never have too many scarves, right? And one for my shop:
Next, I think I'll knit one up for myself!

Have a happy creative weekend everyone!

That's pretty, the fringe looks good in this flat yarn. I don't want to have to pull out the winter clothes yet, but it's in the 30's at night here. Have a great weekend!

Of course you must knit one up for yourself. I love and wear scarves all winter along with a hat.

Oh Debbie, this is incredibly gorgeous. Very, very impressive. I see from the photo what you mean by flat yarn. You did a fabulous job. I'm always impressed with your talent and abilities.

BTW, I read your comment and have to tell you, RELAX!! You still have another week to finish your lesson. MY homework lesson will appear this Sunday, then Lesson 19 will appear the following week on the 21st. That is when I will ask for YOUR homework.

This is lovely, and I love that yarn! Never seen it here. I have got my knitting bag out already for when I come out of hospital, I knit myself a new cap and scarf each year - as you say, a girl can't have too many! Have a lovely weekend, Hugs, Valerie

see you there! said...

What a beautiful scarf. The picture sneaked in under my radar. I
m knitting a baby blanket that is taking forever and when I get it done I have to turn right around and knit another - 2 babies expected in the family in the month of May. I promised myself that I would NOT look at any other knitting patterns until I'm done. Well, I couldn't help it could I?

Oh that is SO pretty!!!! I've never used that type of yarn before. I love the drop style of knitting. This is so nice and airy but also looks warm, too. Great job! :)
