Knitting season


I can tell because:
a) it’s cooler
b) I just bought some coloured corduroy jeans that remind me of pumpkins
and c) I have that weird seasonal visceral craving to break out the sticks and start knitting.

Knit wips are calling to me as they bulge out of the cupboards – “pick me! pick me!”. I also realised I spent a long time thinking about wrist warmers after seeing some on a girl in the whole foods store in town and then, the clincher – I noticed that I slowed down as I drove by the yarn store.

I think it’s time to see if I can remember my ravelry password. Who’s joining me?

    Me! Knit season’s already in full swing for me…knocked out two wips that have been on the needles for over a year. Felt good!

    My daughter is due next week so I got a jump start on the season, however, I can feel the desire to knit more building momentum while I can’t seem to get off pinterest and ravelry!Happy Hookin’

    For me, it is always knitting season. I will say, fall brings my favorites out of hiding: wool! Yea, it is exciting.

    Autumn is definitely creeping up here – but I haven’t had much time to notice having been in Spain, Portugal, Swizterland and Italy in the last month – catching a few last summer rays (after a horrible summer here in Scotland) and managing a little knitting in between. I am making the Tilting Tardis Cowl from Ravelry in some beautiful blueberry hand-dyed yarn I bought on the island of Skye this summer…..perfect.

    I love your knitter illustration. So cute, she reminds me of Little My.For me, knitting season never really ends, but I am trying to curb my urge to cast on many, many new projects and finish the sweater, scarf, and socks I already have on the needles!

    Yes, I am with you! Already off to a good start, finishing an Autumn project before spring starts. Big accomplishment. On to the next project to cast on….enjoy your knitting, Claire!

    It’s always knitting season! I have been knitting little tiny bunting flags while watching the kidlets at the beach.
