Hey, this is fun!

Hi Knitters,
Aren't those beautiful Japanese Lanterns? My daughter's teacher grew them in her garden this summer. My daughter brought a bunch of the knitted Acorns a la Betz to school for her the other day and this is what she sent us in return. Lucky trade. 
I am officially a freak for orange. I love that pumpkin shade of orange any day of the week. I can't ever get enough. Japanese Lanterns, that's my first fun item to share.

My next fun item to share is this.  Scroll down and look at the projects. Which design do you think is mine? I'd love to see if you can tell just from the pictures. That's pretty fun to see after my cover project debacle.  It's a good pic, too.

Write in a guess in the comments if you're inclined. I wrote about the project briefly and vaguely awhile ago. I will have more on that particular project coming soon. I took some of my own photos I will share. Is that magazine out on the stands already, does anyone know? I didn't see a date on the site.

More fun ahead:
and

I have to make these, I want just one pair of those (dpns of, course) and I simply love her style. Plus I just looked and she's talking about quinces. Love.

I figured out the photo posting thing so that's pretty fun, too.

We'll talk soon.
best, susie

I've suddenly become crazy for orange myself. Those Japanese lanterns are definitely a nice bonus!

Leah said...

I guess the elephant!

Suzette said...

My guess is the elephant. That magazine has not hit The Wool Cabin yet. I can't wait.

My first guess was the elephant, but the pom pom hat could be it, too.

Betz White said...

elephant! elephant!

love those lanterns, I want some.

peaknits said...

Because I know your undying love for the Pom Tree...I'm guessing the Pom Pom Hat. Thanks for sharing all of the fun links - I think I "favorited" every one and put that book on my wish list:)

Susan I tried out those signature needles at the Wisconsin Sheep and Wool Festival over the weekend. They were amazing. But the price!

Denise said...

I'm guessing the blue elephant, he looks so sweet and the baby blue sweater, or do you only have one? if so, then I'm saying Elephant.

Jani said...

You're trying to convert us all to becoming crocheters with those bluebirds, aren't you?? Hmm, no, probably not.

Kate M. said...

I think the elephant... and I now NEED the pattern - so cute! I'll be watching for the magazine on the shelves...

Erika said...

how about the birds and the elephant?

lindagerig said...

Maybe the blue hat with the pompom. It is just a guess. I loved them all. Linda Gerig

Harper said...

My guess is the tea cozy!

Linda said...

it must be the elephant... it looks like the paci clip from itty bitty nursery!

Alison Boon said...

I haven't seen that edition of the magazine but I am going hunting at the weekend. I think you might like the hat and scarf that are a burnt orange shade

The chinese lanterns are in full bloom here and I can't stop taking pictures of them. Beautiful color!

Gotta be the elephant:)

Wool Winder said...

My first guess was the elephant, until I saw the scarf with all the pom-poms. Are both yours?

Anonymous said...

I'm torn between the elephant and the pom pom hat!

Anonymous said...

My guess is the red and blue "paper bag" hat with pompoms. I got my issue in the mail yesterday and can't wait to get home to check the pattern credits! Congratulations on getting published, Ramona

I love the lanterns - the color is amazing!!!!! The pom pom hat is my first guess but i also think that the elephant could be yours. Can't wait to see the magazine.

Beth said...

Several of those could be yours! I'm taking 3 guesses:

1. Paper Bag Hat with Poms
2. Scarf with Poms
3. Elephant (NOT Elephante!)

Brooke said...

I am guessing the birds!

Nikki said...

I am going to have to guess the elephant as well. Something about the ears tells me its yours :)

Sarah said...

I think it's the teapot cozy. Making us guess is fun! :)

Kathy Little said...

I guess the blue elephant! He reminds me of the elephant paci-holder.....which I made and gave as a gift last weekend. WoW...what a hit it was!

Jane said...

As I scrolled down looking over all the lovely projects, and got to the elephant I just had to smile and chuckle! :)

Kathleen said...

Elephant!

mlc2boys said...

I'm going to be completely unoriginal at this point and also guess the elephant. It doesn't really matter if I'm right- I want to make everything on the page- so yours wins no matter what!

Jessica said...

I'm guessing the elephant! It's really cute!

Dianne said...

'Tis the season for orange! Such a great autumnal color and the little lanterns are so cute-must put them on my garden list for next year.

Susan;
I have your two itty-bitty books and am officially an addict - the patterns are fabulous. I want to purchase the silk yarn you use on the garter stitich cardigan...do you mind providing the brand and color so I can find it online?
Thanks so much, cristin
