Fall weather is upon us! I don’t know about you but I love the scents of this season, moist leaves burning in the crisp autumn air and apple cider on the stove with cinnamon sticks to greet you when you come home. Delicious!!
We are so excited to have this weather change upon us since it is perfect timing to cast on a pair of socks. Join us at Alpaca Direct as we join Michelle Hunter in her Cableship KAL! This toe up sock pattern is full of great cable techniques, but also includes a heel that is new to the series. This KAL is free and no registration is required. Simply click here anytime after 9am, tomorrow, October 6th, to download the first installment of the pattern. Videos and daily feedback will be provided by Michelle Hunter on her website and on Ravelry.
If you have not bought your Zauberball check out our selection of them and get it ordered so you can be a part of this great autumn project!
Prizes will be provided by Skacel Collection.

We've been seeing faux-fur pom poms everywhere lately—they're so cute! They add a touch of chic to any knit hat pattern.
Shop owner Kelley figured out how to make faux-fur pom poms at home, easily and inexpensively, with faux fur from the fabric store and items she had around the house. She's so clever.
Here's a video of the process.
I discovered the Norrland Hat pattern on Ravelry and decided to take on the challenge. I love the trees and snowflakes, and I have never done colorwork and cables at the same time. Since I love learning new things, I bought the pattern immediately and cast on.
I made some modifications, including turning the hat into a slouch instead of a beanie, and I wanted to explain those in case you want to modify your project, too.
Hats are the knitting trifecta: small projects that are useful and make great gifts. You can most hats done in a short time, and many are one-skein wonders.
Here is a variety of free hat patterns, from beanies to slouches to earflap hats, that are guaranteed to suit your gift-knitting needs this season and for years to come.
