Fall is now in the air, and for many of us, it is already in full swing. This has got my "knitting gears" (I'm convinced I have some) working overdrive with total excitement and anticipation. I've already begun a new scarf and a new sweater, with three other projects in mind as gifts.
Knitter's have this horrible reputation for creating sweaters that end up as cat beds. By adding overly cute designs or using just plain ugly yarn, garments that require time and love, are not well received. This is a reputation that has gone on for generations, but I do believe we are breaking free of those horrible inclinations we may have. Thus our friends and families are beginning to love, and happily wear, what we make.
