Fall Project Roundup

After a few weeks of record heat in September, October has brought with it a real bout of fall weather. We are loving the cooler temps where we can bundle up in our woolen goods and spend cozy evenings inside making things.

To celebrate this changing of the seasons, here are a few of our favorite projects!

Home Decor

Hygge Wall Hanging

Part of the autumnal mindset is the act of getting cozy. This is part of the Hygge lifestyle. Read this article from Melissa Ludden Hankens to understand what it means to live a Hygge life.

 

Autumnal Wall Hanging

For those of us who enjoy decorating for the seasons, this topical wall hanging is perfect for your front door, or office.

 

Zoom Loom Turkey

With Thanksgiving just a few weeks away, this Zoom Loom project is perfect for quick party favors or decor. You could even hand stitch initials into the “fan” of the bird to act as place cards!

Pumpkin Pin Cushion

Gourd fiends rejoice! This piece of decor is great for Halloween, Thanksgiving, or just general harvest-time goodness!

 

Bon(e) Apetit! – Table Setting

For something a little more spooky (and quirky) try your hand at a skull motif table setting.

 

Accessories

If My Old Favorite Jeans Were a Scarf

For a classic look, that will go with just about everything, weave up this lovely denim-look scarf.

Weather Brick “Log Cabin” Scarf

For something more rustic, this fan favorite is a must! You don’t have to use handspun yarns, but a textured wool would make this pattern shine!

 

Crabapple Scarves

In the spirit of warm jewel tones and stash busting, you’ll love the look of this project

 

Lassie Shawl

This faux Burberry look is a perfect fit for the fashion forward folk. This warm wrap (made in collaboration with Berroco) will keep the autumn chill away.

 

Frabjous Collaborous Stole

Another fun collaborative project, this time with Frabjous Fibers/Wonderland Yarns, is this stole by Judy Pagels. The blend of fibers and yarns is perfect for cooler weather.

 

The Dublin Poncho

When the weather starts getting even colder, and the last of the leaves drops off the trees, the Dublin Poncho will be there to wrap you up in goodness. The lofty yarn and full size poncho (with hood) will surely be a go to piece of outerwear.

Spinning

This is the perfect time of year to sit down at the wheel or pick up a drop spindle and spin some lofty, textured, and cozy yarns.

In this post, Kate talks about the change that her process underwent during a past Spinzilla spinning contest.

 

For a truly cozy yarn that you can use to make your fall-weather accessories with, try making a textured cable yarn!
