September is here, there is a chilly feel in the air and my knitting is reflecting this. In an attempt, possibly futile, to use up my stash, I cast on hats for my parents. For both I used the Farm Beanie pattern by Alison Britt. This is a quick knit, using 4mm dpns using DK yarn. For my mum I picked some purple yarns.
And for my dad, a green and brown chenille-type yarn (the label had gone missing a long time ago!). In hindsight, knitting the the chenille-type yarn was a bit of a pain, as it was more difficult to see the stitch definition.
And whilst the air is feeling autumnal, I am thinking ahead, and my first Stjarna star is finished. Have you started any Christmas knits?
