Episode 90 - Knitting the Colors of Fall 2015

Greeting fellow yarniacs! Guess what? It's that time of year again. That time when we give some thought to our fall wardrobes, preview the fall colors, and actually plan a look to wear in the fall. Wow! I know, it is a lot to think about, but take it one bite at a time. Even if, like me, your previous color planning has involved seeing what new colors of t-shirts are on sale at Target, there is something about the arrival of fall, the start of school and memories of new school clothes, and the arrival of boot and sweater season that makes many of us turn a focused eye on our wardrobes.

Like all of our knit-a-longs, we have a casual and inclusive attitude. Pick a color from the Pantone Fashion Report and knit something. Further details can be found here. If you wish to be eligible for prizes, check those rules and starting and finishing dates. If you just want to knit along, feel free to join in anytime. The chat thread is already going and there will be a separate FO thread. Have questions or need support? Join us in our Ravelry group here. I can't wait to hear which are everyone's favorite colors and what everyone is planning for the fall!
