There's snow in store for the mountain passes this week! Are you ready for chillier weather??
(Can I have the soup, hot tea, and cozy knits portion sans winter driving, please??)
Here are a few Ravelry bundles in case you're not prepared! (And, accessories are great gifts, too.)
A reminder--if you're feeling poorly, please join us again as soon as you're feeling better!
We have TWO craft alongs happening this month--
1) It's Socktober! Start and maybe finish a pair of socks or slippers!
2) Keep it spooky!
See below for pattern inspo. Use yarn from Yarn Folk, and return this scoresheet by 10/31 and you'll be entered into a drawing for $25 in store credit!
Berroco introduced a new free pattern in their October 13th newsletter, and I've been thinking about it ever since! Briar was designed for Ultra Wool Fine, but the yardage and gauge are spot on for Lanas Light. Finished sizes range from 35 1/2" to 70 1/2" at the chest, with recommended ease of 2-4" larger than your actual body measurements. It calls for 3-6 skeins, and with Lanas Light priced at $11 per skein, it's a very affordable sweater project. The body is knit flat in one piece, and the sleeves are knit flat and then sewn in. The fronts and sleeves feature bobbles and a bit of lace, while the back is stockinette stitch.
I finished the Killer Queen Cowl using one full skein of Junction Fiber Mills' Making Tracks and two skeins of Berroco Lanas. These are such cozy yarns--wooly and soft in equal measure. As for the pattern, the frequent changes in texture and color play made it a joy to knit.
I've also started Mabel, a pattern from Cocoknits, inspired by Mabel from Hulu's Only Murders in the Building. I'm using Berroco Ultra Alpaca Chunky Natural in the Farro color; other knitters have used Malabrigo Chunky or Vintage Chunky. This is the first Cocoknits sweater I've made, and I'm liking the shoulder and neckline shaping techniques quite a lot!
