Between spring & fall, I'm not sure which season I like better: warmer days, cooler nights, bucket loads of potential in the air. Fall and the beginnign of the new school year just around the corner has my preference for the moment. Fibery folks have lots to look forward to as well! The oodles of patterns coming out have me thinking about what to knit out of the new Pebble Worsted I have coming in a few weeks. Here's are five I think would make great holiday gifts (lots of Ravelry links): Dots Blanket in the smallest size would make great baby blanket gift, and I have just the niece on the way. I've seen the Leftovers Cowl knit up out of another superwash merino 4-ply, and the level of soft smooshiness was quite decadent. I think two versions are called for: one high contrast and one low. Bolting would look great in two colors - changing every time you start a new section. Or just one. Or using Pebble Sock. I heart versatile patterns! High Water has great twisted stitch neck details and a hint of striping. I can see my eldest being happy in one in my Red Maple and Inkwell colors. I plan to knit a Lady Kina for myself. Silverlight keeps asking me to knit it up, so I think I might have a pale gray sweater in my future. While we patiently wait for Pebble Worsted to arrive and the Deep Fall Knitty to get published, keep checking out Black Trillium Fibres for new colors (Ginger! Sprig! Special Handpaints in the old Merilon!) and lots more of the new Merilon Sock.
