Sea Wolf and Worsted

Small ball of purple worsted weight yarn

Yummy yummy fuzzy worsted

The weather in Arizona is finally, finally, finally turning. Mornings are chilly, evenings are cool, and daytime highs are below 90º. This is the time of year when Sea Wolf‘s music becomes my soundtrack and I start craving sweaters knit in worsted-weight yarns.

(if you live somewhere where October means highs in the 60ºs or less, please do not rain on my parade here)

I really would love to drop everything and hole up in my apartment with Melba to knit something like Ease. I think I even have yarn I could use for that pattern…

But o w l s is still on the needles. I am rawther shocked at myself: I haven’t worked on it at all since 2011. Luckily, the worsted is just as good 2 years later! Most of my other recent projects have been in fingering, and I’d forgotten how quickly thicker yarn works up. The thick, cushy fabric is so satisfying too…

What is your favorite fall knitting?

    Mmmmm, worsted weight wool is just about the only thing that makes the cold weather tolerable for me. We don’t have terribly cold weather here, but I’m a total wimp. I love Ease. I’m knitting the kid version for my daughter. 🙂

      It’s hard to stay warm when your body is used to cold! I can’t wait to see her all dressed up in her Ease–I’m sure I’ll have to cast on for my own the moment I see it 😉
