The Fall has been Amazing in Minnesota this year. I just can't believe that October is almost gone. Halloween on Friday, our Giftables Event on Sunday, our Grandview Retreat next weekend and before we know it, it's THANKSGIVING. WHOOSH..its as if a big gust of wind has ushered in the fabulous fall knitting season.
As the leaves fall I happily shift my energy inside. I review my queue of knitting projects and look for inspiration in the colors and textures of the of the fall yarn selections. The choosing is always such an enjoyable part of the process.
Options for a perfect fall garment is the Chill Chaser Poncho. This quick to knit design is knit from the top down in Rowan Chunky Alpaca (choose from 6 colors) - a 5 skein project that can be completed in a weekend. My design is free with your 5 skein purchase of Rowan Chunky Alpaca.

HiKoo Kensington has arrived. The big brother to HiKoo Kenzie. A fabulous blend creates a fabulous knit. An incredible new fiber from HiKoo®, Kenzington is an aran weight, woolen chainette which creates a springy, lightweight yarn with generous yardage. Inspired by its cousin Kensie, Kensington is a blend of 60% New Zealand Merino, 25% Nylon, 10% Alpaca, 5% Silk Noils.
