Here’s Julia in her fabulous creation from Rowan’s “The Kasbah Collection”:

A stylin’ sweater with a fantastic combination of colours in the popular Rowan yarn, Summer Tweed. It’s a succulent combination of 70% silk and 30% cotton. We have all of these colours and more…

Linda’s knitting the Minimalist Cardigan, from Interweave Knits, Fall 2007, with the sumptious Mirasol Sulka yarn:

This will be one of the softest cardigans ever. She’s promised to send us a photo when it’s finished. I suddenly think I need a new project.

After all, I recently finished both a scarf and a hat:

Here’s a close-up of the scarf:

It’s Jared’s pattern. This one’s knit with 2 balls of each of Noro Silk Garden colours 252 and 268 on 4.5mm needles. Cast on 39 stitches, 1 x 1 ribbing throughout, working 2 row stripes. Slip (purlwise) the first and last stitch on the second row of every stripe for straighter edges. This scarf was really fun to knit, the constantly changing yarn colours were very addicting enjoyable. The refrain of “just a few more rows” was heard even more often than usual.

Here’s a closer view of the hat:

It’s Amanda’s pattern. It’s knit with less than a skein of Manos del Uruguay in the Wildflowers colourway, with 5.5m (US 9) circular needles, switching to dp’s for the last few rows. This hat is a size s/m, I’m going to knit another in a larger size. Apparently I can’t have this one, the tween finally wants to wear a handknit creation.

Anina is knitting a beautiful scarf with 2 skeins of Manos. It’s gorgeous.

And to wrap up for today, another bit of holiday inspiration:

This snowman was knit for a little boy who absolutely loves it, won’t leave it anywhere. He’s squishy-soft and cuddly, as any good companion should be. We have the pattern.

Hope you’re able to curl up and knit or crochet somewhere warm and cozy on this chilly November weekend.
