Knit Simple Winter

My Winter Knit Simple just arrived! I get mine a little early...it's not due to hit the newsstand until December 14th.

The stuff for kids in this issue was really cute. There was a bunch of great striped designs for child's sizes 2-8 or 10 along with accessories too. With the exception of one garment that had a bow at the neckline, all of them could go for a boy or girl depending on your choice of color.

Then there was a section they called Back to School. These are going to work for your 'tweens through teenagers. These were all modeled on girls, but I think that many of the designs would work for the boys in your life too. That's certainly true of this cute hat/scarf combo by Faith Hale. It's knit from our Shepherd Worsted and shown here in 104 Uptown and 16ns Charcoal. But if you grabbed a more gender neutral color, your little boy could rock this look.

I know we've all got tunnel vision right now with holiday knitting lined up as far as the eye can see, but we'll all need something to work on come January too!
