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