Some Pumpkins and a Scarf

Hi everyone!
This post contains some stitching and knitting!

First my Fall stitching, a lovely primitive pillow.

Model by Stacy Nash Primitives – House on Pumpkin Hill Pinkeep.
Stitched on 36 count Haunted linen by Picture This Plus using The Gentle Arts and Weeks Dye Works threads.

Every single motif on this pillow is adorable!

I finished my scarf! The scarf have six sections with diferent stitches.

It is a beginner’s stitch sampler scarf by Kristina Tucker using a 100% portuguese wool yarn, Beiroa in colorway Pale Pink.
Since I used a light worsted yarn (needle size 4mm) I adapted the pattern, I cast-on 46 stitches and I worked 48 rows for each section, except for the garter stitch section that I worked 24 rows.

My favourite part of the scarf is the seed stitch section and the basketweave section. I did not do a good job blocking the scarf, but since it was the first time I knitted, I’m very happy!

Thank you so much for visiting!! Have a great day!

  6. Wow, Lili! You are certainly doing well with your knitting–the scarf is so lovely. It’s interesting to see all of the different stitches, too. I could not wear it as I am very allergic to wool–it itches me badly and I get a rash.

    Your stitched finish is so sweet, too–especially love the color of fabric you chose. Hope you have a wonderful, creative December 🙂

    1. So sorry for the wool, you probably have a very sensitive skin.
      Thank you very much! 🙂
