Getting ready

In the last couple of days, the weather’s been cooling down a lot, and all of a sudden, a warm hat seems like a good idea, or a snug cowl, or some cozy gloves.

So we’ve been mulling over what to make for the coming season, and the very first finished object that comes to mind is the gorgeous cowl above. It’s a Burberry Inspired Cowl, which Lisa’s just finished in Mirasol Miski. It knits up very fast and it’s ever so stylish, don’t you think?

Inspired by this combination of yarn and pattern, we’ve been looking at the shelves and dreaming of warm and practical accessories. What about a Wurm hat in Malabrigo Arroyo? (That would be the bounciest hat imaginable!) Or for warm and practical hands, perhaps a pair of Susie Roger’s Reading Mitts in Debbie Bliss Blue-faced Leicester DK?

Well-tested patterns that just work, and the warmest of yarn to make them in – that’s what it’s all about. And we’re certain you’ve got lots of ideas too! What pattern are you planning, and what yarn are you going to use? Why not share your ideas in the comments below to inspire us all?
