Cooler weather and a fast approaching, upcoming #Rhinebeck2016 trip has me dreaming of knitted accessories, stranded colorwork, and color combos. I went through my stash and found this bright, tonal combo for a colorwork cowl, what do you think? #snuggleUpandKnit #ilovecolor #Ravelry http://ift.tt/2dqeIjS

Another pair of #SkewSocks made there way on to the needles with the FABU #FiberAddiction colorway 'Glo Bowl'. This is before and after on the BIG O(rigami) moment, where the heel magic occurs! No matter how many times I do it, it still amazes me! #knittingIsAmazing! #knittingMagic #anotherWeekAnotherPair #handknitsocks #Ravelry http://ift.tt/2dnrXOc

My current view: A little bit of knitting, a little bit of soccer, and a little bit of Fall colors creeping into the trees. Fabulous #Lollipopyarn flibbertigibbet base #LaceAndStripes #KnitCahoots #design #SneakPeak #wishicouldshowyoumore #Ravelry http://ift.tt/2cpG48N

This is what happens when you love a fabric print and you know an awesome bag maker! Look at all these sheep! Ann @thesilvershedusa did a fantastic job on this custom bag order, even using the extra fabric for the super adorable color block pouches! #sheepAreAwesome #knittingBagBinge http://ift.tt/2cSordo

Little did we know what we were in for 12 years ago when we got married @jcwisu! Our lives have changed so much, but what remains the same is I am so happy to be on this journey together! The song The Luckiest by #BenFolds was out first dance as a married couple, and I really am the luckiest, everyday! #lovemyhubby #lovemyfamily #lifefilledwithlaughterandlove http://ift.tt/2cIFVME

These #forMaeganKAL socks are such a bittersweet FO: they are beyond gorgeous, dyed by an amazingly talented fiber artist whose yarn I am no longer able to stash. They make me simultaneously happy and sad. 😍😞 Sparkly Unicorn #MonkeySocks with #cyborgscraftroom Dem Unicorns colorway. #Ravelry #handknitsocks #knitonthroughallcrises #anotherWeekAnotherPair http://ift.tt/2cIhfjY

It is always such an honor and delight just working with the fabulous @annielightknits on projects, but the cherry on top is her generosity and thoughtfulness with gifts like this for Ellie and me! Her kits are always so perfectly-put-together, and this Pippi one is so perfectly Pippi! Right down to the Pippi-mint scented soap! #Isqueeeed 😁💞😍 Thank you for your creativity and generosity Anne! #LittleSkein #perfectlyPippi http://ift.tt/2cxSFWm

What are the colors of your Sunday? I have a wonderful color combination of an orange cat in my lap and a purple sweater on my needles while watching football. This sweater is Ellie's #rhinebeckSweater and a @knitcahoots design for the #Minnesota52 book. #Ravelry #dcpigskinparty2016 #catinlap #colorfilledLife #ilovecolor http://ift.tt/2cgXwIm

A close-up of the Sweet Potato Stew recipe, in case you want to try it! #yummmmmmm #kidTestedMotherApproved http://ift.tt/2c6yBJV

Another family favorite from my new recipe a week adventure is this hearty Sweet Potato Peanut Stew. The peanut sauce is peanut butter and tomato based, with cinnamon, cilantro, cumin, and garlic. Plus garbanzo beans and sweet potatoes. When the weather turns cooler, this makes the house smell so good, and warms you up from the inside, especially when you add bacon like my hubby does. #getInMyBelly #fallCooking #iloveFall http://ift.tt/2cMjBQo

There's no such thing as too many pairs of matching Mother-Daughter socks, right!? 😉 I love that I can make a pair for her with the leftovers from mine! And I adore this #speckletastic @spunrightround Snappy sock in 'The Walkers' colorway. #EllieLovesRollers #anotherWeekAnotherPair #Ravelry #handknitsocks http://ift.tt/2cJV3aM

I was shocked and saddened today to hear of Maegan's passing @cyborgscraftroom 😭 She was an amazingly talented dyer, creating fun and beautiful colorways. It was an honor to have known her and worked with her on ZK and BD kit colorways. I had planned these cast-on before I heard the horrible news, but now being surrounded by her gorgeous yarn is comforting. #forMaeganKAL #cyborgscraftroom #anotherMinnesotaArtistGoneTooSoon http://ift.tt/2bOXAmB

Here is the Apple upside-down cake recipe. I have lost where the recipe came from originally, but I compiled a book of the recipes I tried that year. Hopefully #InstagramZoom will make this readable. #homemadewithlove http://ift.tt/2bOlIHc

Back before I was a #Knitter, I set resolutions like trying a new recipe a week for a year. This upside-down apple cake was one of my absolute favorites from that year! #appleSeason #IloveApples #feelingFallish #almostGoneNow http://ift.tt/2bLMfPh
