Staying Warm

Things are getting really pretty in the Northeast. Leaves are turning, apples are ripe and pumpkins are everywhere! And it’s beginning to cool down, as in extra blankets at night and sweaters for daytime. All this means it’s time to get those knitting needles and crochet hooks cranking to keep our families and friends warm!

My daughter’s birthday is coming up and I’ve decided that she needs a hat for getting around in her new home in Denver. I’ve knit her Durbin from Every Day Knits. Knit in Mohawk Wool, it’s an attractive, warm and quick hat I know she’ll love. Because she has thick hair, I’ve made adjustments to the pattern; the brim is an inch longer and I’ve picked up more stitches to compensate. The pattern tells you how to do this, so this hat is perfect for all head sizes.

I’m sure your loved ones will appreciate a new, stylish and warm hat for the coming winter, especially if it’s anything like last year! Check out our Web-Letters for plenty of ideas and take a look at the great patterns in all our books.

What’s on your needles?
