No, It’s Not Secretly Fall

Unless you live south of the equator.

Which I don’t.

I simply don’t plan well. That’s all.

I used to be a good planner. I even own a planner. Several actually. I just haven’t been able to properly apply good use of said planner(s).

I basically live in chaos, but that’s okay.
This cowl (knit in Spincycle Independence) was my New Year’s knit. At the time, my stash was light. This had been on the to-knit list since fall (whoops), so I just went for it.

Aimless knitter over here. Hand in the air! That’s me!

First: I LOVED this yarn. It was my first Spincycle test drive. Cool stuff. Thick and thin, which I like. Similar to hand spun, but not. Groovy company. It checked all my boxes. I was truly sad when I cast off. Maybe the Easter Bunny will bring me some more.

Easter Bunny? Hello, are you out there???

The design: wear long or, as I prefer, loop to wear short and snuggly. This project FLEW off my needles and was done in NO TIME at all. I found this to be immensely satisfying. It’s a solid Worsted weight, so this thing’s no joke. It would get you through a blizzard.

Or gale force winds.

Just saying.As for the colors, well…clearly they are screaming FALL!  This is classic me given the fact we are in the dead of winter (SNOW visible out all my windows), although spring is creeping in (daffodils also abundant).

Apparently I am living in a state of Seasonal Confusion. Yes, you can check the Handbook of Psychological Disorders for the details on that one. It’s a Real Thing.

I totally made that up. It’s not a real thing. At least, I don’t think so.

I am going to be patient and wait until the Actual North American Fall season to release this pattern. What do you think? 

Hey, before I forget, did you know Craftsy is having a BIG SALE this weekend (Friday-Sunday)??? 50% off knitting kits and supplies. You’re welcome. Wink.

    I never knit in “season” so to me this knit and it’s beautiful autumn colors look perfect to me. 🙂

    Good rustic look in this infinity. I like the backstory of Spincycle Yarns when I had listened to their interview via Woolful podcast.

      Thanks my dear. I agree. Good backstory. How is your top coming?

        No progress I’m afraid. I had to take the week off to rest my hands, wrists, and forearms since I had a class Friday. I will hopefully knit a bit today.

    I’m so sorry if you mentioned this and my eyes just refuse to see it, but what pattern did you use for the cowl? It’s lovely!

    beautiful colors in that cowl and I love how it wraps doubly. That is the best kind of cowl if you ask me. I am adoring your endless sunshine too 🙂

    Great color for you! I find that I don’t usually wear seasonal colors but what works for my complexion. Great knit!
