I started a new book this week! Anne's House of Dreams which is book number five in the Anne of Green Gable series. Anne is now finally married (took her long enough!) and she is living in a new town with of course more neighbors and friends to interact with. I have been thoroughly enjoying re-reading this series and remembering the plots as they occur. It is a wonderful trip down memory lane.
For knitting I have been working on my tea leaves cardigan. I am loving every stitch of the project! The yarn ella rae classic is perfect. It has spring and bounce and just enough elasticity. I have finished the increases for the yoke and now just need to complete the stockinette portion until I get to the armholes. I will be dividing up the sleeves and body.
The weather here has changed for the better. There is a crisp feeling in the evening that was missing two weeks ago. The sun is setting a little earlier each evening and it just feels different. I know if we do get a heat wave it will most likely be over quicker than usual. Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. I am more than ready for scarf, sweater, and mitt wearing.

Your really have me wanting to cast on my own tea leaves and in the same color yarn too! It is so pretty! I can't believe how fast you are coming along with it..Wow! xxReplyDelete
hooray for good weather. i love that colour. it reminds me of the alpaca and silk beanie i made myself back in tassie. xReplyDelete
Tea leaves.. Tea leaves.. What's all this talk about tea leaves? Well yours is turning out so beautiful that I guess it's time for to start believing everyone out there and purchase some yarn for a Tea Leaves of my very own!ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by my YA page - I love the name of your blog BTW. (but am very envious of your "fall" - or autumn as I call it. I miss seasons so much). I look forward to exploring your blog some more!ReplyDelete
Your tea leaves is looking fabulous.ReplyDelete
I'm so looking forward to fall.
Love that mustardy color of your tea leaves. And so many bloggers have mentioned Anne recently (we rub off on one another, right?) that I'm thinking that I must (in my spare time :)) start rereading (and reading for the first time) the entire series. Which Anne book has been your favorite so far?ReplyDelete
I agree, this fall-like change is lovely. Great weather for knitting and reading :) I found my anne books last week and can't wait to get into them.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous colour for the cardigan, love it :)ReplyDelete
Anne's House of Dreams is by far my favorite of those books! It makes me long for a house by the sea.ReplyDelete
Your tea leaves is looking lovely!
Love that color, I've got some similar wool I've been waiting to knit up. You are making me thinking about reading Anne of Green Gables again!ReplyDelete
i'm knitting a tiny tea leaves for the red bean's christmas sweater. easy pattern, love it.ReplyDelete
and your fall weather. so jealous. thinking i might come visit - you'll have a few empty rooms soon, right? ;-)
Oh, LOVE the gold/yellow! Totally puts me in the mood for fall knitting. :)ReplyDelete
Your cardigan is turning out so lovely! Can't wait to see the finished object.ReplyDelete
Fall is in the air here too. I'm dreaming of changing leaves and Halloween costumes.
I love Fall the best, too. That's why I got married during that season. ;-)ReplyDelete
Your Tea Leaves is coming along nicely. Can't wait to see the finished sweater.
LOVE the color of your tea leaves! It's so fall-ish. Love that.ReplyDelete
Just the idea of Autumn, puts me in a happier mood. Why we are having summer weather NOW...after 3 months without any...is beyond me! But, I know it can't last for long! Ahoy knitting season!!ReplyDelete
I can't wait to see the adult tea leaves! It looks lovely... and you have me wanting to re-read Anne of Green Gables, too!ReplyDelete
I love that pattern. What a beautiful color for it! I always wanted to make myself one of those in some shimmery pecan color.ReplyDelete
That book in the series was always my sister's favorite (besides the first one, of course!) I hope you enjoy it.
That sweater stops me in my tracks every time. It's beautiful. The weather is changing here too... I can't wait for long sleeves and sweaters!ReplyDelete
Ah fall! I love the gorgeous hues of bright orange, vibrant red and brilliant gold. Looks like the cardigan will be very pretty when finished.ReplyDelete
I have only read Anne of Green Gables, but would love to read some of the other books in the series.
Loving your new header! Makes me think of Autumn...ReplyDelete
That Ella Rae Classic is nice yarn to work with. It will be lovely in that cardi!ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my yarn along post. I'm also from PA -- lived in the suburbs of Pittsburgh as a girl until we moved to Washington State in the mid-70s. Blessings to you, ~LisaReplyDelete
Oh the weather is changing here too is turning crisp and I am NOT ready for it. I love all of the seasons bt summer the best. I really do think I may have to read the Anne series...ReplyDelete
There is something so enchanting about the changing of the seasons. Fall is definitely my favorite!ReplyDelete
Your cardigan is coming along beautifully, and the color is just wonderful.
Anne!!! Love her!!!
oh how beautiful your tea leaves is. i'm finally going to make one too, as soon as the wool i've ordered arrives (can't wait!)i love your color choice!ReplyDelete
Fall is my favorite time of year, too, although I'm not quite ready for it yet, as we haven't had much of a summer. I never tire of the Anne books. I'd love to knit a Tea Leaves sometime soon!ReplyDelete
that yarn colour is adooooorable, i so want a tea leaves in it too ;-))ReplyDelete
and you guys really inspire me to get the anne of green gables series, i saw ginny is reading it too... maybe i'll give them a go this autumn!
I discovered Anne of Green Gables about 25 years ago (and I am really old now). My SIL grew up with the books and mentioned them to me. I think I read them all. I actually donated the series to a book drive held by or local paper a few years later and asked that the series not be broken up.ReplyDelete
I am also knitting a sweater in Ella Rae, Polar Cap Cardi. It's zz'ing for a bit as it's too warm her (CA) to work on it (I'm almost done and it's to bulky to have on my lap).
