Happy first day of Fall! Are you enjoying the day with a cup of festive hot tea and a crisp apple? Are you baking, canning or roasting veggies? Or maybe taking a nice stroll through the neighborhood enjoying the sights of a new season? Or are you looking for a way to celebrate? What better way to celebrate the start of a new season than to cast on a hat! And we have stocked the shop with brand new Squish Me Kits.
The kit includes one skein of Kent DK, our romney/merino blend in colorway Beach Glass,
and the pattern for Squish Me,
a slouchy hat with a welted pattern that expands and contracts to give the piece luscious, cozy volume. The deep knit/purl texture gives body and definition to soft, luxury yarn blends, encouraging the hat to collapse into soft folds. Easy to work stitches and a simple, one-piece circular construction make this a great option for last minute gift knitting—one that travels well and is suitable for any age or gender.
The pattern includes four sizes (XS/S/M/L) and the kit includes 1 skein of Kent DK , enough to knit any size you choose! Sarah was happy to model her hat for David.
Since her mother Anne knit Squish Me for Sarah, she has rarely left the house without it. She told us everywhere she wears it guys and girls both ask her where she bought it. She tells them her mom made it and their response always is, “can your mom make me one?”
I know Sarah is itching to learn to knit and a lot of her friends are too. Who knows!? We may see lots of Knitspot hats out and about in Ohio. And as the style watchers tell us…hats of ANY kind are super trendy this Fall.
So start digging through your needle stash and put those hat needles on the top of the pile! It’s time to get your hat knitting on! We have a lot more surprises in store; keep an eye on the shop for new limited edition kits!
If you need a tasty way to celebrate today, head to your local orchard or farmers market! We bundled up early this morning and drove to Franklin Cider Mill
and drank hot apple cider with steaming hot donuts.
Great way to kickoff this crisp, sunny Fall Michigan day! What are your Fall traditions as the weather starts to change?
