Autumn has definitely arrived in Wales. There are still some small reminders of summer lurking, but they are now far and few. Blue skies, a few warming rays and a little bit of colour in the garden is all that remains.

However, October is my favourite month of the year, and I totally agree with Anne of Green Gables who said: “I am so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers”. 

The colours in nature are changing and the light outside becomes all mystical, with low mists and early morning frosts. This is the perfect time to rummage in my yarn stash and cosy up with my knitting or crochet in front of the fire. A time for making small and quick projects to fend off morning and evening chills in the air, or to start working on special hand made gifts for all those peeps close to our hearts.

To celebrate the golden month of October I want to share a little Frippery with you…

#madewithloops.co.uk #meleri

…this is ‘Meleri’, a cute little Neckerchief tie. So cute, it bears no resemblance to the utilitarian versions worn by scouts and sailors. This wee frippery is quickly knitted in no more than a couple of evenings and will jazz up any outfit and keep the chill off just as mornings and evenings turn a little colder.

Special good news, only about 100m of yarn is needed for this cutie, which I am sure we all have in our stash. Go on, what are you waiting for! Download the FREE Pattern right away by clicking here! Pour yourself a nice cup of tea (or something stronger if you fancy!), settle down with a good movie and get clicking away.

Hello friends, how is it all with you? Good I hope…

I have been working hard to get my new Etsy shop, the Made with Loops Bazar, perfectly up and running. It takes a while to get it looking just the way one wants, but I think I am slowly getting there. Have you had a look yet? What do you think? I’d be really grateful for some feedback.

Today I would like to introduce two patterns to you that are brand new in the shop.

Haf Socks still 1

HAF – LACE SUMMER SOCKS

You know my love of sock knitting by now, and it will come as no surprise therefore, that my first introduction is a new sock design. These socks have a delicate lace pattern that can easily be achieved by knitters of all abilities. They are pretty enough to wear in open toed shoes and are simply perfect to put your best foot forward. I promise you…you will love them.

Meleri – Neckerchief

The second new design is a cute little Neckerchief. This little beauty bears no resemblance to the utilitarian versions worn by scouts and sailors. Quickly knitted in no more than a couple of evenings, this little frippery will jazz up any outfit and keep the chill off just as evenings turn a little colder. I have made a few using different types of DK yarn, silk for beautiful sheen and drape and soft Alpaca for extra warmth. These make great little gifts…think birthdays or even Christmas (it’s really not that far away)…start planning early!

Both these patterns are now available in the shop, as well as some gorgeous new yarns just perfect for these two designs. You can have a little browse just here.

Have a lovely weekend everyone, I hope the sun is shining wherever you are.

Enjoy! X.
