I love this time of year when the air is crisp in the morning and the sunlight is gentle. Knitters may feel in the mood to start creating items for cooler weather. Decorations for fall are some of my favorite things to knit.
Check out these darling pumpkins. You can make them with any weight yarn, but because I think they are so cute, I had to make them tiny! I used various fingering weight yarns and size 3 and 4 double point needles.
Need help getting started with double points?

And the Summer Squash looks just like the real thing!
As if I couldn’t get enough, I had to make the Zucchini.
For me, knitting the tiny items is instant gratification. Each one I finish is my favorite!
But… some people like to make super chunky items for instant gratification. So, I decided to knit The October Vest by Karen Clements on Ravelry. How is that for cozy warmth to toss on with a pair of jeans? I used four skeins of Loopy Mango Merino 5 in Midnight and size 19 needles.
And last but not least, every year I have to make another Pumpkin Hat! This one was made with Berroco Vintage Worsted in the most beautiful orange you have ever seen.
We love knitting in the cooler weather!
Knit Yourself Happy!
