For knitters, autumn is the kick-off season for cold weather knitting. Gone are the days of sitting with a sweaty pile of yarn trapping all of summer's heat in a square foot radius on your lap.

From now on, your knitting needles no longer look out of place. The cool air works with your stitches, rather than the humid air that worked against it. It's finally fall, and there are so many things to knit in celebration.
