So it is almost October but the weather still feels summery. The trees are starting to change and it is getting dark so early now. Now is the time to get started back knitting or crocheting ( for those of you who don’t knit in the summer). There are great yarns out there just waiting to be made into something great. Sirdar has a new yarn that comes with a matching pompom. There is enough yarn in the ball to make a hat and the pattern comes on the back of the ball band. You don’t have to make it into a hat though – you could make a scarf and put the pompoms on the ends instead of a fringe.
Chunky yarn is big still so there are some great chunky yarns out that knit up so quickly. Try the new Berroco yarn Mojo to make a chunky hat or cowl. Big, and I mean big, chunky yarns have been shown on the fashion runways made up into nice comfy sweaters. Instead of spending the thousands of dollars for the designer version, knit up your own super chunky sweater. The nice part is you get to use big needles so it will be done in no time
Now is the time to get started on those Christmas knits so you can relax and enjoy the season instead of knitting right up until Christmas eve. You can still knit Christmas Eve, you can enjoy it and not be stressed whether you will finish in time or whether you run out of yarn before the stores close.
