A trip to the pumpkin patch....

Hello everyone :)
so the boyfriend liked my scarf last night. He put the ends together and then pulled them through the middle. I am so happy to be done and that it was a success :)
I have started on another piece that is a christmas gift for a friend, another striped scarf which I do enjoy knitting.Today I went to the pumpkin patch with my family! here are some photos from the day. It was perfect weather and a great time. Our shoes got stuck in the mud as we were walking though... must remember next year to wear rain boots. :P

Boyfriend's scarf complete with a few more adjustments

Hello everyone, I hope you are enjoying this fall day. It's raining here and I am glad that I am home now.

I got my hair cut today. This always makes me feel really good and refreshed. I got it cut at a mall nearby and of course it began to rain as I was leaving so I had to shield my hair from the rain. Here's a picture of how it turned out!:

Did you know you can actually get feathers put in your hair now? my hair dresser told me its like hair extensions but with feathers instead. Here's a link to explain further.

I am so thankful for the weekend when it comes because it allows me to slow down and take some time to focus on myself and most of all, my knitting.

I finished the red and blue scarf I was working on for my boyfriend. I just need to weave in the ends that were left at the beginning of each row.

Have a good day! I'll let you know how he liked it :)

Tim hortons: a stress release

Hello :)

Today was such a gloomy day and I work at a childcare center and we could not even get the kids outside to play today so it felt even longer!

At the end of my day I drove with my mom first to no frills, then to Tim Hortons, our favorite after work spot.

(pictures used from Tim Hortons website)

I got the delicious cafe mocha and a pumpkin spice muffin, both were soooo delicious and my mom and I devoured them once we got home. It's nice to treat yourself after a long day at work especially after a rainy day.

Do you have any after work routines to de-stress and unwind? :)
Have a good night!

website spotlight: Wool and the gang

I came across an article in my Nylon magazine that talked about a knitting website that offers knitting patterns and has knitted products for sale. They have a jacket called "the James Dean Jacket" that resembles his denim jacket, but its a knitted version of course. There are also video tuturials for knitting beginners which I found helpful as well. Check it out!


Thanks for visiting and happy knitting

Knitting related book spotlight: Knit Two

Hello !

I have started reading Knit Two, which is the second book in the Friday Night Knitting Club novel series.

I am loving that the group we all fell in love with is back together again. There is a big difference however, (which I won't disclose incase you haven't read the first book) and it is interesting to see what happens afterward. I am on page 101 and I can tell this will be a real page turner. Kate Jacob's is very talented in creating a group of friends that feels like your own. Both knitters and non- knitters will love it! and maybe even start knitting because of it....

Striped Superman scarf

I started this scarf for my boyfriend Kris last week. He wanted the colors red and blue for a striped scarf. I enjoy making something that I know will keep him warm in the fall and winter. It is definitely getting colder here in Toronto..

The wool is Bernat and the needles are size 6 mm US 10. I casted on 30 stitches . The stripes are 15 rows each.

Stay warm,
