Autumn berries - knitting

I always feel like knitting at this time of year











My most recent purchase was this gorgeous Colinette Point 5 yarn. The shade is called "Summer Berries" but I think the blackberry and golden pink plum shades are more appropriate to early Autumn time and should be called "Autumn Berries"

There are even touches of gold, brown, orange and leaf green mixed in. Yes, it's definitely an Autumn scarf












I knitted a long loopy scarf from a Colinette knitting pattern. The loops were made by wrapping the yarn round my thumb before knitting into the stitch












The yarn twists and turns and changes colour
































This was all the wastage I got from 100g. It's not really wastage either as the yarn is 100% wool so I will use these ends in felt making









We have Autumn sunshine in St. Ives
Have a lovely weekend :o)

What a sweet little loopy scarf. I love it - the color(s) (my favorites), and the loopiness. Looks like it was fun to make. How cute this is going to look on you.

Wow! YOU KNIT, TOO? You are amazing! The yarn is delicious - makes me want a mouthful of blackberries! We have snow today in Denver so I am taking my tea by candlelight and enjoying the show before I begin cleaning and preparing for some Australian house guests. LOVE hearing from you, oh creative one! xoxoxo pom pom

Gorgeous colours! I love Colinette yarns - have you ever been to their shop near to Welshpool - it is an obligatory stop for us when we go on our annual holiday to Pembrokeshire - the first time I went I thought I had died and gone to heaven!! Put it on your list of places to visit - I can well recommend it.

Awesome scarf Carolyn! What yummy colors and texture. Well worth the extra effort of making that loop before each stitch!
