Autumnal Knitting

Since school started in August (yes, we start school in early August), I haven’t had much time for knitting. But I’ve managed to complete a few little projects.  These Jack-Be-Little Pumpkins are a favorite of mine. I make several every year–changing up the yarn color and the sizes.

I’ve also made a couple of really simple cowls with sock yarn.  Using my favorite size 6 16-inch circular needles, I cast on 100 stitches and knit in the round until the cowl measured about 13 inches or I ran out of sock yarn. The ends roll quite a bit, but that’s okay.  They look fine all squished up on my neck and keeping me warm. I made my first one out of scraps of grayish sock yarn, and it doesn’t match at all.  I just wear it around the house. The second one was made with Patons Kroy Socks in Rusty Stripes. I bought the yarn ages ago, and it doesn’t look like it’s available anymore, but I think the colors are perfect for fall. 

I love working with self-striping yarn.  So,  I’m making another cowl with Patons Kroy Socks in the Sing ‘n the Blues Stripes colorway

What are you knitting this fall?  Whatever it is, I wish you. . .

Pleasant knitting!
