I love the smell of Autumn!

Pumpkin CardiganI really like the look of the cables matched with the garter stitch in this cardigan from Knit Simple Magazine. The model is holding apples and it reminds me of all the wonderful things that happen during Thanksgiving (and for me, that mostly involves eating). It makes me want to go to Black Creek Pioneer Village. When I was a kid I won second place in an apple pie baking contest there. I cut out a picture of a unicorn in pie crust and put it on top. I even glazed it a little bit with milk so it would turn out a touch darker than the rest of the crust. I think I used a horse cookie-cutter and then added a horn. It was the cutest pie you’ve ever seen! Hmm, maybe I just want pie.

I’ve decided that if I indeed knit this sweater I’m going to refer to it as the Pumpkin Cardigan. I wouldn’t knit it in the orange — even though I’d love to because it’s such a cute colour — because orange is just not complexion-friendly for me. I’d do it in a bright green, or maybe in the purple Lang Fantomas Superwash I bought a little while ago.

  1. I love the smells of Autumn, but it’s a ways off yet for me here. I should start pulling down the decorations, though. That’ll hopefully give me the drive I need to get this house clean.

  2. I have also added this cardigan to my list of future projects. I think it will be a quick knit that has enough interest that it will not look like a quick knit. Green is a great color for it – maybe a deep forest green or maybee a wine or mulberry. I love fall colors!!!!

  3. I was *just* admiring that same sweater!! I love the cables too ;) Wonder if I have any stash yarn for it…

    It’s definitely starting to feel like Fall here – school starting, crisp mornings – I love it! My favorite time of year, without a doubt!

  4. I’m been looking at that sweater, too! But I think I’d prefer seed stitch or moss stitch for the garter stitch bits. It looks like a nice fit and good length, cabled but not “too” cable-y.

  5. I was thinking the same thing! I love the look of seed stitch and I think it would totally jazz it up a bit. Still, I like the juxtaposition of the curves of the cables and the lines in the garter stitch. I’ll have to think about it.
