Pretty sure I have mentioned it before, but I love autumn. I love the cooler weather and the colours of the changing leaves. I love looking forward to Christmas (yes, I dared say that word with nearly three months left to go!) and I love being able to haul out my knitwear and wear other clothing more suited to 10 degrees Celsius instead of 30 degrees Celsius.
The arrival of autumn rejuvenates my knitting, too. I don’t knit sweaters but while I love my knitted socks, I sometimes like looking for cute accessories to knit…preferably single skein projects that are quick and provide some sort of instant (or nearly instant) gratification. I have so many cowls, and I look like such a dork in hats. I mean it. Hats…really not a good look for me.
I love my boots. In fact, I wear them further into spring than I really should. But when you only have a couple of pairs, it’s nice to change them up a bit. In the spirit of casting on something cute and quick, and dressing up my boots, I decided tonight I’ll be casting on a pair of Jax.
With the number of grey projects I have cast on lately, a pair of these adorable toppers in green, or lilac or maybe even red might be just the thing to knit, and just the thing to have on hand when it gets a bit chillier in a month or two.
