Winter Woolies

So Autumn has arrived and the Gold Coast certainly is playing along. It was playing along well before Autumn arrived in fact.  The rain and wind has been hanging around for a few weeks now but I must say I actually enjoy it.  I love cooler weather. Winter is my favourite season! I love a chance to wear stockings and boots and this weather is certainly giving me a few.  This weather has me longing for nights curled up on the couch with some yarn so that is exactly what I have been doing.  I have plans for a few makes this Autumn/Winter season and hopefully I can get through them all.


The first two I have actually already started.  The cardigan for myself I am making in a nice bright green and I am a third of the way through the second sleeve.  All that is left is to finish the sleeve, block and do the button & neck band.  The dress for Imogen I have only knit about 2" but hopefully it will be a quick make.

The next two I have already bought yarn for and I am just waiting to finish one of the other projects first before casting on.  I am making the heart sweater dress for myself in red with white hearts.  I am a little bit excited about it! Hopefully it doesn't take me too long to make.  Although my green cardigan has taken me about 6 weeks so far so I think it will take a while.  The blanket I am going to be making as a gift for my sister-in-law who is due to have her third baby in May.  So I have a little time to get that done so it is last on the list.  Hopefully she doesn't come early! Because we don't know what she is having I am making it in cream with a yellow ribbon.

The other makes will all have to wait until these 4 are complete so hopefully I can get them done at least before Winter starts.  The last blanket I am not too phased on as I am just using it to use up my scrap yarn.

So do you craft by season? Do you yearn for knitting and crochet when the cooler months set in?


  1. Oh man this post makes me want to learn how to knit! Autumn is my favourite season but I wish QLD was a bit more Autumnal. Perhaps we could paint our leaves orange?

  2. I can't wait to see that little yellow dress for Imogen! It's so pretty!

  3. Well I've been doing a bit of knitting all through summer but definitely associate it more with the cooler months which are my favourites too. All of those items look gorgeous, especially love the little cardi bottom left - super sweet :-) Mel x

  4. you are so clever to try these designs, I cant wait to see how the heart knit turns out. xx
