Ends and Beginnings

Ends and Beginnings

Summer is over and it is officially my favorite season, Autumn. Where the leaves will start turning and burst into beautiful rich colors. Where the days are cool enough to be cozy in scarves and gloves and hats. Where the morning air is crisp and full of potential to contemplate over a morning cup of coffee. Autumn, what a perfect time of year for weddings. Less than two weeks to our big day!

The scarf for Alex is finished and blocked! I must admit I got a bit impatient with the baby blanket and just had to start on it. So I went ahead and cast on and completed the first repeat of the chevron pattern. It has a seed stitch border and eyelets. It’s adorable and fun to work on.

Alex and I went on an adventure to Efteling over the weekend with the family. I had never been there. It was magical and strange, beautiful and kooky and I loved it. Everywhere you looked was something straight out of a fairy tale. It has given me quite a bit of inspiration for future projects I want to make. Truly a magical place where fantasies come to life!

A fun weekend with new memories made. A perfect end to our summer. Until next time!

Welcome!

Welcome!

Hi there and welcome to my very first blog. A quick introduction may be in order. I’m Sarah Jayne, the Wol Harpy. A lover of all things yarn. Whether you are a long time knitter or crocheter, or haven’t knit or crochet in a while or are just a beginner, I hope my blog inspires and encourages you to pick up your needles and create something beautiful with your own two hands. Knitting and crocheting is so gratifying. It’s something to show off and be proud of!

Its getting chilly (not to mention rainy) here in the Netherlands as we head into fall. My favorite time of the year. Cold enough for scarves and hats and gloves and all the other cozy warm things, yet not cold enough for me to not venture outside. I’ve been knitting a scarf for Alex in a deep dark red. I’m absolutely in love with it as it’s a good chunky masculine pattern.

After I finish that cozy scarf, I’ll be casting on a baby blanket for my dearest friend Anna who lives back in Michigan. She’s having a little girl in December. I can’t wait to meet my darling niece Madilyn. Anna has chosen light grey, cream and pink which I’m going to do a classic chevron pattern for. It will be adorable. If I have time before baby Madilyn is born I want to make an African Violet crochet elephant plushie as well. Too Cute!
