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.
