Chilly Weather = Knitting Time!

As the weather gets colder, my desire to knit starts to return. During the summer, the idea of sitting with a big ball of yarn just seems icky. But once autumn starts, all I want to do is relax with my knitting needles and a great old radio show.
At the moment I am working on the bow part of one of these, but if I had the skill (or the patience) I would love to knit one of these beauties from my 1939 Lux Knitting Book. If anyone wants the instructions I am willing to scan you the full pattern, but I warn you now that the patterns are very very very long and scary looking!

And one last thing, I would just like to wish Britt (my favourite model and one of my closest friends) a very happy birthday. Sorry I forgot what day it was today... (I feel so guilty but I honestly thought it was the 28th!)
(Ain't she pretty?)
PS: Wow 47 followers? When I started this blog I didn't expect to get more than 2! I guess I will have to start planning a giveaway for when I reach 50. Thank you so much for everyone who reads this. What do you guys think of the new design? I keep changing the header but I think I like this one...for now...

  2. I'm new to knitting and have only made a couple of scarves and the obligatory beginner "dishrag" so far. I want to progress to making clothes but using circular, or double pointed needles is far too scary for me at this stage of my education, lol! Thank goodness for Youtube tutorials. I agree that there's something about the weather cooling off that makes knitting much more appealing!

  3. @ Gingerella: I'm relatively new to knitting too, but I have a tendency to jump head first into things. My second attempted project was a pair of socks. I never finished them, double-pointed needles are EVIL! I did just buy circular needles though,and they aren't as bad you they look.

    The bow pattern I linked to is super simple for beginners. I've made three already! It is a super quick project if you want to give it a try :)
