Hello my lovely people and thanks for visiting me at the wool nest. I've been nice and cosy this week as I've designed a gorgeous chunky cabled throw and the sample kept me nice and warm whilst I was knitting it up. It felt all snuggly and warm which was great as I had such a bad bout of the flu and tonsillitis which made me feel very poorly and not myself at all - I didn't even want to knit but deadlines forced me to pick up my needles and hook and make things instead of staying in bed and sleeping.
I was pleased to read more fab reviews of my hat book this week, including one from my good friend Tracey, over at baking and making
Tracey contributed a spooky topper to my book, and I'm grateful for her continued support.
If you like the look of my hat book but don't want to buy a full book, you can find more fun hats in this month's issue of Knit Today (issue 91). I designed 3 festive warmers for children - a robin, a polar bear and a Christmas pudding. All easy to knit and are sure to brighten up those cold winter days.
I have more lovely projects in various magazines this month, and I'll share them with you soon, along with some free patterns for a handmade Christmas.

Are you knitting for Winter yet - I'd love to hear what you've been making.

Happy crafting, Lynne
