Even though the days are still pretty hot around here, I know winter is coming (I face this with a dread I have never felt until this year. I still can't think about last winter without shuddering in horror), so I have been sorting through our cold weather accessories. We don't have a long outdoor fingerless mitt season but I knit in hockey arenas all winter and they're perfect for doing that.
This lovely pattern is Lineal Wristwarmers by Felicia Lo in her handdyed Superwash Worsted in the 'Cayenne' colourway. I love this yarn and this colour. The sproingy ply gives the cables great bounce. They only took a few nights to make, so if I break my resolve not to knit presents in December I could whip up a few more of these puppies.
Being September, I can't stop wanting to knit ALL THE THINGS. I cast on two sweaters this week and am seriously considering a third. I love this time of year.
