“There is noth­ing like stay­ing at home for real com­fort.”

Creative Knitting - - EDITOR’S LETTER -

—Jane Austen I am at heart a home­body. Be­ing at home with my fam­ily, a hot cup of tea, maybe a funny movie, and my knit­ting nee­dles is my idea of quite the per­fect day. The best thing about fall and win­ter is that there are so many won­der­ful choices for cold­weather knit­ting. When the tem­per­a­ture drops, it’s not a prob­lem to have a big pile of warm wool in your lap for your lat­est knit­ted mas­ter­piece—it’s a good thing!

In that spirit, we have put to­gether a col­lec­tion of lovely and warm pieces for you to knit and wear this fall and win­ter. It’s time to knit sweaters and other won­der­ful woolly things to make the cold weather bear­able. Never tried your hand at a knit­ted throw or blan­ket? We’ve got op­tions from quick and bulky to lighter-weight and in­tri­cate for you to choose from.

So, what do you do when the weather turns chilly where you live? On the cold­est days here, I set­tle in with a cup of tea and my lat­est knit­ting de­sign project in my comfy re­cliner with my old man bea­gle at my feet. My tea is of course in a spill-proof mug so that I don’t mess up my knit­ting. We don’t mess around with knit­ting around here. If you’re with me, it’s time to grab your knit­ting nee­dles and this mag­a­zine and get started.

In this spe­cial is­sue of Cre­ative Knit­ting we have the per­fect mix of cozy and com­fort­able—cre­ative cardi­gans and pullovers to cud­dle up in, plus the blan­kets and throws you ab­so­lutely need for that just-right fire­side ex­pe­ri­ence. If you ven­ture out into the cold we have you cov­ered, too, with hats, cowls and shawls to keep the chill at bay.

So, what’s on your fall and win­ter knit­ting nee­dles? I’d love to hear from you!
