A look at 10 inspiring accessory patterns to knit this February!
This is the best time of the year to find knitting inspiration. The season has just begun and there are so many ways to experiment with transitional weather garments in the form of lighter weight items, layering pieces, and hand warmers.
This month, I’ve got lots of fingering weight yarn on my needles, and the designs I’m working on are all going to be accessories. Let’s take a look at the yarn I’m working with these days.
It’s been a week of rearranging and hardcore weeding my craft room. I have so many craft supplies that I know could be put to better use by my teacher and librarian friends this coming fall that it was high time to put my own librarian skills to use and thoughtfully make my supply stash smaller.
I think the internet’s initial pulse of “OMG IT’S FALL!” knitwear has passed, and we’re now onto, “oh hey, Halloween, chill sweaters, let’s improve our knitting skillz.” It’s now the confident part of knitting and crochet season where people start to stretch and work on the project that’s been brewing in their head all of late summer and early fall. (That’s not just me projecting how my knitting season is going, I think? I hope? Let me know if you think I’m bananas with this line of thought.) We’re seeing some super cute Halloween & fall stuff, and some really cool knitwear designs have shown up lately that I’m all about. I mean, do you see the shawl and cape in this post? So good.
I feel like it’s beginning to look a little like fall on the knitting/crochet internet this week. I know. August 15. Ugh. But since fall is a great season for fiber projects and ramps us up into holiday knitting, I’m not sure I mind. It’s ok, you can hate me for saying it, although I bet I’m not the only knitter or crocheter who feels this way!
