I know, I know, it’s barely September. The sun is still shining (mostly….), the lake is still warm enough for a brave evening dip, and people are barely back from their summer road trips. Still, with 3 kiddies, I have to start thinking about winter woollies early! I hauled out the bin of warm hats, cowls, and mitts, to make sure everyone had something that fit. They didn’t. So it’s time to get working on a few new woollies for fall!
Hunter needs a hat. She is at an age where she wants some say in her wardrobe, but is still pretty open to suggestion. I am in love with the colorway ‘Princess Rockstar’ from Emily’s Rainbow Heirloom and Hunter agrees so a Bumble hat will be coming her way!
Jones has a Tall Dark and Handsome hat that fits, but he needs some new mitts and maybe a cowl. I’ll be knitting him a Gather cowl and some Bon Bon Mitts. The cowl is Tanis Fiber Arts Green Label in ‘Chris Grey’ and the Mitts will be in some left over Sweet Fiber Merino Twist in ‘smoke’.
Last, but not least, my hubby asked me for a knit! He asked at the end of last winter for a toque and I was paralyzed with indecision. I think, however, that I am going to knit him up a Tall Dark and Handsome hat (my go to) in Sweet Fiber Cashmerino in ‘woodsmoke’.
What woolies are you working on for fall? New mittens for a man? Hats for the kids?
