Needlework Update - October, 2013

Good morning,

It is Needlework Update time again.  Another month has passed and I have been busy with the needles and hooks that call to me every time I sit down. 

The pumpkin sweater above is in child size 4-5...
 ...and this origami candy corn toy comes with it.  At this writing, they are available in my shop, EvensensProductions.com.
This Christmas Tree is on the front of a special order sweater.  There is a children's version in the shop, but the one above has already been delivered to the lady who will wear it this holiday season.  This one was so much fun to make!
This cardigan and hat set in size 12 months is perfect for Baby's First Christmas...
...and this toddler size 4 is perfect for big sister.  Both outfits are available in the shop.
This is a table runner with eight matching napkin rings in red, green, and gold.
I absolutely love this lavender poncho.  It was such fun to design and make.  The popcorn design pattern stitch produces a fabric that drapes beautifully. 
This is a knit neck scarf that I will take home to block.  I love the way the pattern in the yarn is created by the way the scarf is knit.
This is a shoulder warming shawl crocheted with the same type of yarn as the knit scarf above.  It is fun to work up the yarn in both knit and crochet. 
Of course, a couple more turtles...
...were hatched this month, too.
 A dozen starfish also crawled onto my finished items shelf, too.  ;)
I made several sets of ...
...luggage identifiers this month, too.   :)

Many of the items you see here are available in our on line shop, EvensensProductions.com

I often surprise myself when I see the collection in one place of what I have made in one month.  It has been a good month of doing what I love to do!

What are you making this month?  Have you started making your holiday items yet?  Or, are you already finished and just have to gift wrap them?

All the very best,
Lois

Wow! You have really made so much!
It is all very nice, but I loved the
pumpkin sweater, and the red baby set most. The Christmas tree on the sweater is absolutely gorgeous! It looks like you have got much time to knit and crochet on your cruise!

Your hands sure have been busy while cruising the Carribean Lois. Beautiful work. I love the pumpkin sweater! Safe travels back to Ohio.
