In this issue of KNITmuch you’ll find a lovely collection of baby knits including a garter stitch blanket knit on the diagonal, booties, a hat, and a knitted toy with the ever so soft Lion Brand Feels Like Butta yarn. These are all easy patterns perfect to knit when taking a break from more challenging ones. Then, sink your knitting needles in the tangy Galway Poncho knitting pattern with glorious cables using Lion Brand Wool Ease! This is a more challenging project that inspired the matching hand warmers and a hat using design elements from the poncho. To round out the content of this issue are some technical articles about knitting smooth edges and going over the moss and seed stitches. And, in preparation for next winter, Cynthia MacDougall shares her pattern for the double-knitted pockets as an element of a collared scarf. It’s never too early to knit for cooler weather!
