Get “cozy” with Fall

I’m glad it’s Fall. I think it’s my favorite season of the year. Pumpkin and apple scented things, cardigans, clear blue skies, golds, browns, olive greens….the list can go on! 

When I think of Fall I think of warm drinks…I love warm drinks, even in the middle of Summer…hot tea, coffee, cider, etc. And I like my drinks hot: lukewarm, no thanks!!

So as quick, during a movie, or lazy afternoon (like we get those a lot ;p) I like to knit up cabled cozies. This one is probably my all time favorite:

Here’s another cute Fall idea:

I would make them big enough to use for pot holders or hot pads.

I couldn’t resist…

I had to go ahead and knit something with the Sari SIlk with Gold! I had been wanting a market bag, so I decided to knit one of those. I really like how it came out. It took me exactly 1 skein (I literally had 1 foot left), so if you knit any differently or want thicker straps or a larger body, it’ll definitely take 2 skeins. Not to mention I had to sew it together with some other yarn, so there’s that too. I did this in a matter of hours today, so it’s a really quick, nice knit.

voila! 

The handles criss cross, I thought it might add durability plus it looks cool!

I am offering this pattern free with purchase of yarns.
