A pot pourri of birth-related knitting resources

germs1There’s something about the change of weather in the Autumn that makes me want to shift from quilting – my spring, summer and travel craft – to knitting.

I don’t know if it’s the cold, the longer hours of darkness, the changing colours of the leaves, or maybe the happy thought of adding to our tiny knitted snowmen and Santa collection that does it, but I often feel the same urge at this time of the year.

Autumn tends to find me knitting socks, and a few bacteria, in between stocking our seasonal Etsy shop ready to open for the few weeks before Christmas!

So for anyone who feels the same kind of urge, here is an information hub in which we have gathered together all of the knitting-related resources on my site.
