Fall Knitting

Knitting has become a fun hobby and source of relaxation for me. I enjoy finding patterns and making small cloths to be used for dishcloths, washcloths, or table decorations. It is also a joy to share these handmade items with friends and family. Recent cooler temperatures have caused me to think about fall and to knit the fall items pictured here. I am always happy to share patterns with other knitters.

Dining Room Tablescape

Well, I finally changed my dining room table. The china is Royal Doulton Floradora and is my wedding china. Cherrywood by Gorham is my wedding crystal. Heritage by Rogers is the flatware and I found it while antiquing years ago. The crochet placemats were a wedding gift from a lovely lady named Millie Kinard. I will never forget the day she gave them to me. The fact that she gave me such a beautiful gift that was also a gift of time is priceless.
