I read yesterday that the Farmer's Almanac is predicting an especially cold winter. On a practical level, when I think about heating bills, that's not welcome news. But as a knitter, I'm not alarmed. It just fuels the urge to knit more!
The planning, math, and swatching are done for a fall cardigan pattern, and I've cast on the sample. Cowls, mitts, and hats are also in the design queue. So I think I'm OK with the prospect of a cold winter.
If the cooler nights and shorter days are making you dream of new projects, how about a cowl? I'm honored that Birchleaf is featured today on the Knitspot blog. It's knit with one of their new Bare Naked Wools yarns, the luscious Breakfast Blend Fingering.
With this cozy yarn around your neck, you'll be ready for anything the coming winter throws at you!
