Autumn knit patterns and items

It has been a very busy summer with almost a complete month of vacations.  We got to spend a lot of time with our grandchildren.  What a treat.  Then, off to the mountains, where I get so very many ideas.  I love pine trees and the wonderfully delicate flowers

With the cooler weather of Autumn I thought I would showcase some of my knit designs and items for the Fall.

I love knit lace and designed a fingerless gloves pattern and a matching scarf using DK weight yarns.  I designed the fingerless gloves pattern that fits so well because of the stretching ability of knits and the designed shaping in the pattern.  This pattern includes charts along with written instructions.
This pattern can be found at Craftsy,  AndersonsCreations at, Ravelry shop or use the buy now button at the right for European buyers.  For Canadian and European buyers, I now have a LoveKnitting shop.

The matching scarf has written instructions and charts and includes instructions on making the scarf into a scoodie if wanted.
This pattern is in my Etsy shop, on my craftsy shop and my Ravelry shop.  For Canadian and European buyers please use the buy now button on the right hand side or out of my LoveKnitting shop.  My Etsy shop offers a discount for buying both these patterns together here
My latest lace knit pattern is the De-Vinely Bohemian Lace Shrug.  Again this pattern includes charts and written pattern instructions.  It is made to be flattering to just about any shape or size with different lengths for taller or shorter and has sizing for Women's size small all the way to 5 X-large.
What a glorious way to add warmth and elegance to any outfit for cooler Fall evenings.  Again, this pattern can be found at AndersonsCreations, my Craftsy shop, at Ravelry or my LoveKnitting Patterns or use the buy now button on the right.
If you don't like to knit and would love the own this glorious shrug I have made some using a wonderful yarn that is Merino wool (a very soft wool) and silk.  The burgundy and charcoal short shrug is for Women size small to large at my Etsy shop
If you are interested a longer version, because you are taller that most people, in women's size small to large you will find it here.  I used the same wonderful yarn with orchid and cream lace edging.
I also made this pattern for us larger women in size 3 X to 5 X large.  I love the teal color with the light gray lace edging and it can, also, be found in my Etsy shop.

What about the men who would love fingerless gloves.  My husband loves his because as a wood worker, he needs to feel the wood grain to work on it.  The Winter tree cable knit fingerless gloves pattern works up quickly and includes charts and written instructions.  Again because of the stretch in the knit fabric this will fit men's hands and includes shaping so that it will wrap their hand in warmth but their fingers free to feel what they are working on.
This pattern is available at AndersonsCreations, my Craftsy shop, at my LoveKnitting designs, at my Ravelry shop or use the buy now button on the right side of this post.
If you would like a pair of these fantastic gloves already made for you, I made a pair using a rust colored cotton yarn for easy washing. 

All my knit designs can be found at AndersonsCreations, Craftsy shop or on Ravelry or use the buy now buttons on the right of this post.
Autumn is one of my favorite times of year in Kansas with the heat cooling down to comfortable without air-conditioning.  What is your favorite way to add warmth to outfits with the cooling temperatures?
