Topic of the Week 3

Autumn has now officially begun here in the States!! What is your favorite thing about Autumn/Fall? Why?

Well the heat dies down and althought mid-day is warmer, the mornings and evenings are cool and crsip. I also like flannel sheets and jammies, sweater and socks. We have fires and football!

Fingerless Gloves

No fingers, but I thumb. My first thumb gusset. This is the first glove I did and the second one came out better. I am contemplating ripping out the first thumb and redoing it.....
This is Artyarns Supermerino color 123.

When you knit or crochet dishclothes, washclothes or face clothes, what do you use? What size needle or hook? Wood? what type? Metal? Plastic? A specific Brand? Why do you love that needle or hook so much? Is there one you are dying to try? Is there a particular yarn you love and use all the time for clothes? What is so special about it?

I use my Bryspun #7 straights. They have a great point to pick up cotton yarn with. I love Sugar and Cream and Peaches and Cream and I have a ton of it! Peaches and Cream has better colorways I feel so I guess that would be my fav!

Went to the Stitch and Pitch yesterday and here's my awesome goodie!

Now that in some geographic locations the weather is starting to turn cooler, do you change the type of yarn(s) you knit/crochet with? If so, what do you now knit/crochet with instead and why? If not, why do you not switch and what do you knit/crochet with?

Living in California, we don't get the drastic change in the seasons but I tend to knit more with wool and things that make you want to sit by the fire and knit. I just brought out a sweater I had OTN as it was too hot to lay across my lap. I knitted socks this summer and now I get to wear them!
