So Autumn has arrived and the Gold Coast certainly is playing along. It was playing along well before Autumn arrived in fact. The rain and wind has been hanging around for a few weeks now but I must say I actually enjoy it. I love cooler weather. Winter is my favourite season! I love a chance to wear stockings and boots and this weather is certainly giving me a few. This weather has me longing for nights curled up on the couch with some yarn so that is exactly what I have been doing. I have plans for a few makes this Autumn/Winter season and hopefully I can get through them all.
The first two I have actually already started. The cardigan for myself I am making in a nice bright green and I am a third of the way through the second sleeve. All that is left is to finish the sleeve, block and do the button & neck band. The dress for Imogen I have only knit about 2" but hopefully it will be a quick make.
The next two I have already bought yarn for and I am just waiting to finish one of the other projects first before casting on. I am making the heart sweater dress for myself in red with white hearts. I am a little bit excited about it! Hopefully it doesn't take me too long to make. Although my green cardigan has taken me about 6 weeks so far so I think it will take a while. The blanket I am going to be making as a gift for my sister-in-law who is due to have her third baby in May. So I have a little time to get that done so it is last on the list. Hopefully she doesn't come early! Because we don't know what she is having I am making it in cream with a yellow ribbon.
The other makes will all have to wait until these 4 are complete so hopefully I can get them done at least before Winter starts. The last blanket I am not too phased on as I am just using it to use up my scrap yarn.
So do you craft by season? Do you yearn for knitting and crochet when the cooler months set in?
