So it’s almost Yule, almost Xmas, and it finally got cold. By “finally” I mean literally: it just stopped being over 50 degrees (F) daily yesterday. I guess this gives me time to catch up with my blog – and my knitting. One of my favorite things about fall is knitting. Projects I wouldn’t tackle in the summer when no wants to sit under a heavy fabric become appealing. Once it gets past January and Imbolc passes – I’m only interested in knitting shawls, spring, and summer, or the occasional blanket. See, the trouble with starting something after mid-winter is the unlikely you’ll actually get to wear the finished object. I know from experience if something can’t be used and ends up “sitting” for too long I’ll never wear it. I don’t really like hats that much once it warms up, so the only accessories are shawls, bags, maybe socks. That’s fine and I enjoy those projects – however it’s not the same as a big cabled jumper. So here are a few shots of what I have been up to lately.
*Jumper is Kennedy Sweater by Anniken Allis published in KnitScene Fall 2012. Hope you can ignore my cable mistakes!
*Hat is Modern Selbu Hat done in worsted weight yarn by Kate Gagnon Osborn on Raverly.
