fall food & knitting











Eating, drinking tea, knitting...easily three of my favorite pastimes, especially when I can enjoy all three at the same time.
Recently I ordered some wool to make a couple pair of elan mitts ~ one pair for gifting and one pair for me.  These fingerless gloves are 'faux' fairisle, meaning great colorwork that's easily done!  They are knitting up quickly, and I love watching the pattern unfold with each row.
The scones are pumpkin with a spiced glaze...very delicious and the recipe is found here.
Are you enjoying any fall knitting or baking?

  2. The gloves look lovely and complicated, I've clicked through to the link you provided and I can see the pattern is very clever. I'm knitting this one in my spare time http://eightbysix.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/free-pattern-antler-cable-fingerless.html

  4. Your knitting is so lovely and those scones....I can see that you are in heaven with these two things going on. I don't knit, but I am crocheting a baby sweater for an expected new arrival. I do have to make those scones. Thanks for sharing. xx

  5. hmmm...not fall knitting, but spring knitting - one dishcloth a week (it's week 4 since I started, and I'm busy with dishcloth #3....and yes, always baking; currently in the tin: old-fashioned, traditional south african rusks - to have with any-time coffee, or tea:-)

  6. Sadly I've never been able to master knitting! I have been working on a lovely little patchwork quilt though, and been experimenting with new cake flavours! Your woolly mitts are looking lovely - so cute and cosy!

    Best Wishes

  7. Huh. I actually took up knitting so that I could do something in the evening other than stuff my face!!! It's hard to pop M&Ms while keeping your wool clean :) I thought I could knit while watching TV but I vastly underestimated my ability to count stitches and follow the plot of The Mentalist. Go figure!! Stevie@ruffledfeathersandspilledmilk.com

  8. Deb, thank you for enjoying my scone recipe and post. We are always looking for scone recipes to try out...it's amazing how different each recipe seems to be. I'm eyeing your little mug cozy down there so I'm definitely going to enjoy landing on your site. Have a great week! Sarah of 'thyme'

  13. i loved your blueberry lemon scones a while ago, and now must try those pumpkin scones. An afternoon knitting (or any other crafting) and eating and drinking sounds like absolute paradise to me!

  15. I'm quicker with crochet, so I'm making a stack of dishcloths for a wedding gift next weekend.

    I look forward to starting some knitted mittens or socks after I finish my holiday gift list.

    ~smile~

    Have a terrific weekend!
