cooler mornings....

and a promise of cooler days to come. It seems the Plumbago does best this time of year. Such a pretty blue.

Plumbago

Working on a couple of more hankies in SS5 with Karen Ruane....some of the hand dyed cloth is mine, some purchased from Deb Lacativa and the beautiful indigo blue shibori cloth was a gift from Jeannie Evans Van-Hoff quite awhile ago.

I am still working on my Downton Abbey knitted coat that I hope to finish by winter but we started a knit-a-long in knitting class so I'm also working on a Stitch Sampler Shawl. It can be found on Ravelry if you are inspired.

That's about it for this week. Have a great weekend.

Oh--I do miss the plumbago that used to pop up in the church garden before it was destroyed. It's such a specific blue and I adore it. Nice work...and I'm still looking forward to your Downton Abbey coat...looks like it may be ready just in time for the launch of the new season. Good timing.

Oh Deanna, everything here looks so beautiful. I love the direction the hankies are going and the green of the stitch sampler is so pretty. It's interesting to see all of those stitches side by side. Enjoy your time creating.

The knitting stitch sampler is very interesting. The colours are beautiful. The hankies also have nice colouzrs. And I am glad you are going to finish yourDowntown Abbey coat.

yes, the mornings are definitely cooler here too. I do love the blue of that flower, it's very intense.

I am glad the weather has changed for you. It is such a wonderful time to be in Austin!! Beautiful flowers! I can hardly wait to see your coat, will it be done by the time the new season of Downton Abbey starts? Hope you have a good week!!

such a pretty flower this is a new one to me, good to see the Downton Abbey knitting is growing and the hankies are looking interesting

Magpie's Mumblings said...

Such a nice grouping of colours to see today! I didn't know the name for that flower but have admired it so much (mainly because it's blue and that's a rarity among flowers).

Looking forward to seeing that coat. I am knitting as much as I can on my poncho...the mornings are cool!

Peggy said...

I love Plumbago and my little plant is not disappointing me. Blue in the garden this time of year is such a treat. Thanks for the shawl link. Knitting season is upon us. Your yarn is gorgeous. Have a wonderful week.

Hi Deanna, I missed a few posts lately. I love the Plumbago. I didn't know that what is called until now, thank you. The blue and green are such lovely contrast! It's beautiful - Hugs Nat
