Because it is chilly

I offer up this handy link to knitting patterns for warm objects (scarves, hats, and gloves). Baobh and I are totally enamored of these patterns at the moment.

Smariek Knits

(I am loving the Georgiana lace scarf, and will knit it in some of the Noro I’ve been drooling over. Because I can’t pass up an excuse to use more Noro. Or maybe Manos. Or this Manos.)

(Side note: does anybody else immediately think of Manos: the Hands of Fate whenever somebody mentions Manos yarn? Because I do.)

I realize now that I have a woefully small number of hand-knitted scarves. I do not wear knit gloves or hats much, but I love scarves, and mine are all pashmina. I will have to fix this. Wooo! Another reason to knit.

Reason #13 for why I knit: It makes cold weather more fun.

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.
