it's the time of the season...

...for knitting.

ah, fall. the chill in the air. the warm apple cider. the hay rides. the crinkling of leaves underfoot. the click-clacking of knitting needles, yes indeed. it is the perfect time of the year to pick up forgotten projects or to start brand new ones. this chickadee has gotten into knit one purl one spirit after a short summer break. one project is already underway and there are several more to come, as it is well past time for plenty of people to receive prezzies. better knit than never.

the pattern that cast-on this knitting craze is from the book classic knits at home by erika knight. the cabled throw is a perfect project for the fall. as the temperatures drop lower in the evenings, the throw grows longer to keep you warm while you rib and cable your way to a lovely, luxurious looking lap afghan. here's how the garden is growing:

as shown above, the yarn is from knit picks. it is their bulky weight cadena in tree frog, which is a richer green in person. it seems washed out in the photos.

if you want to get your knit on but need a little encouragement, grab your sticks and strings and head on over to redeem tonight. it is the first thursday of the month, that means knit night from 6:30-8pm.

Autumn would be even better if it didn't cause so much cornfusion.
