The way we knit in the south is different. Not the act of knitting itself mind you. Just the type of things we knit. It is hot wayyyyyy longer down here than up north, so sweater knitting isn’t going to be our everyday knitting. Nothing fun about hauling out a 2 pound wool sweater in 90 degree weather, right ! Today it was 89 degrees, so while running errands with the hubby I had my sock in tow.
We are getting closer to October, and even though the temperature won’t cool off very much, something about seeing all the pumpkins and the fall decorations going up…… well it just makes me want to start knitting things like cowls and shawlettes. The day they start offering the pumpkin spice lattes and my local coffee shop, I go home and start sorting through my DK weight yarn and looking at all the fun cowl patterns in my queue.
I picked up this great pattern at the Arkansas Fiber Arts Extravaganza this past weekend. Of course that isn’t the only thing I picked up shhhhhh. I will share my fun purchases with you in the next update.
See you soon !
