When I first started this blog it was so that I could share the projects I was working on with friends an family. Now, since I have started dyeing yarn and moved the blog over the the new Lilliput Yarn website I had a decision to make. I wondered if I should change the blog to include only items relating to or made from Lilliput Yarn or continue posting as I have done in the past.
Ultimately I decided that I would keep the same format and show projects even if they are not related to my own yarn. There are two main reasons for this: 1. I don't always have new colorways or items made from my yarn. 2. I still want to be able to share my projects with you and don't want to exclude projects from the blog simply because they aren't made from my own yarn.
That being said, I would like to show you my newest sweater! From the time I first saw the book Botanical Knits by Alana Dakos I knew that I wanted to make Autumn's End. I loved everything about how it looked, it just took me a while to finally get around to making it. The yarn I used is Blue Moon Fiber Arts BFL Sport in the Saffron Jungle colorway which I loved working with and the color was exactly what I had in mind.

And finally.... finished! It turned out as well as I could have asked for. It fits great and is comfortable and warm while not being too hot to wear indoors.
