The weather might not know it right now, but it’s the first day of fall. In my mind that means it’s the first day of proper knitting season. I have yarn for two big fall projects. At my current rate I probably will only get to one of them before winter, but that’s not the end of the world.
I’ve got a couple skeins of red Cascade 220 that’s destined to be a full length version of my blue cardigan. You read that right. I’m knitting a full length sweater. I keep starting projects that I intend to knit full length, but when I see them at waist length, I get too attached to how they look. I’m stating my intentions for everyone to read in the hopes that I actually follow through and knit something full length.
The orange Cascade 220 is the shade that I’ve been using for my Mini Series. I’ve gotten pretty fond of the color so I decided to knit a sweater out of it. That might be a horrible idea. My mom voiced her concern that it might clash with the red/purple tones of my hair, but I’m going to knit with it and hope that it looks okay. This is definitely going to be cropped. That’s not much of a surprise. I just haven’t decided if I want to make a cardigan or a pullover.
What are your fall knitting plans?
