I am pleased to inform you that it is now autumn! Ok, technically there are still 2 more weeks of summer, and sure, it's still 90 degrees outside. I simply don't care.
We had our end-of-summer BBQ yesterday, and this morning the fall decorations were hauled up from the basement so I can get to work (I will leave the Halloween decorations until closer to October).
And as you all know, autumn=knitting. I've seen so many amazing patterns recently, narrowing down my potential fall projects is nearly impossible (not to mention the 3 design deadlines I have coming up next month).
First, I'm working on another Chanchito, to contribute to the Hufflepuff Baby Gift Brigade collection--the badgers playing the HP Knit and Crochet House Cup collect handknits for expectant badgers every term. I got a wonderful box when Ollie was a baby, and now that I have (slightly) more knitting time, I want to contribute.
And speaking of Knit Picks, how CUTE is this Pumpking dishcloth from Teresa Gregorio, AKA Canary Knits? I am really not a dishcloth person, but I HAVE to make this one!
Poor Ollie gets all the hand-me-downs, but I'd love to do a new sweater for him too--any suggestions? Or maybe Ollie should have a sweater designed in his honor? In my spare time . . .
And of course I'm still trying to get about 5 pair of half-finished socks off the needles, plus my Monte Rose cardigan--which is SO close!
So, what are you planning to knit for fall?
