It is officially autumn. In other words, knitting season. I’m really excited about knitting for the colder weather this year, because last year I was consumed with exclusive sock knitting, and the year before that, it was the same story. This year, however, I’m finalizing a Quince and Company order for two sweaters (!), have the jitters for starting several new hats, and daydreaming about something that I would never have thought that I would be thinking constantly about — scarves.
Personally, I think that scarves are underrated. Scarves are the frosting on the cake; the insulation in the walls — scarves exist to fill in the gaps, which a cowl can’t necessarily do. Even though they can take a long time, they don’t have to be boring. (A side note: I’m working on a scarf design like that …)
But I didn’t set out to talk about scarves today. I really wanted to ask, “What are some of the things that you’re going to be knitting out of the woolly wools as the days get colder?” I need more inspiration. 🙂
Also, thank you to everyone who bought the Meduseld pattern this week. I’m in awe of your support and enthusiasm. To all of you who are new, please comment here on the blog, or the Ravelry group to introduce yourselves. I’m looking forward to getting to know you.
If you got gapped and didn’t get the coupon code, please give me a nudge here on the blog, or on Ravelry. Sometimes it happens, and I’m super sorry if it happened to you.
