There's a lot of inspiration to be had right now; it's beginning to look, feel and smell like Fall. I'm mentally re-arranging some ideas and project plans as well as fixing in my mind the things I want to learn how to do. Of course it didn't hurt that I was around some new yarn yesterday. I'll be knitting an adorable shop model for an under-represented group of knitwear recipients -- little boys. It's a classy and simple striped sweater from one of the newest Louisa Harding books, The Magical World According to Miss Millie. The sweater is "Twitch" and the yarn is Nautical Cotton and I'm anxious to try it out. We also have another of her new books, Winter Muse Classic and I fell in love with everything . . . but mostly "Ginger."
We'll see what I actually end up knitting though. I like thinking about it almost as much as actually doing it. If something is not already complete or almost complete, I'm not committing to knitting Christmas gifts. I want to continue to use knitting as respite and not as a cause of stress.
