Ah, fall. Seemingly overnight, everyone's drenched in knitwear. Eye candy for the knitter abounds. Where last week there was a swath of deep golden leaves on the trees outside the Quince office, now there's not a one to be found.
This is where it gets hard to narrow down my favorite things on Ravelry! There's just so much. Sweet fair isle hats (here and here), classic sweaters (here and here), and our dear friend Carrie Bostick Hoge has unleashed yet another stunning publication, Swoon Maine, with so many amazing new designs that I may just need to quit my job to make more time for knitting...(just kidding! you guys are stuck with me, sorry.)
Textures are what I'm craving right now for my needles: cables, lace, and cushy knit/purl combinations...
And on instagram...I couldn't resist. As you can see above in the Ravelry portion of the roundup, our heathered wools are getting a lot of love right now. Here below is a tribute to gray, the color of many a day in our beloved New England home, and also the favorite color of many of the folks here at Quince:
A couple of fun things happening on Ravelry right now...in the Quince group, we're hosting a "Kid-along", and any baby or kid pattern published by Quince is game! Read more here, or just jump on in here! It goes all the way to just after the new year.
And, something as dear to my heart as knitting (and music) is walking--designer Christina Campbell, aka The Healthy Knitter, is hosting a knit/walk-along, aimed at keeping our bodies as active as our needles! One of her KAL projects is a mystery piece in our very own Chickadee...head on over to her Ravelry group to learn more.
