Has anyone else started planning for fall knitting? I know that it's a touch early to be thinking about scarves and long-sleeved sweaters again, but ever since I started knitting a few years ago, I always get excited for autumn knits around mid-August. There are at least four sweaters that I'd like to finish this fall; I started one last week and am about halfway through, so hopefully I'll finish that one before the weather changes. I also kind of want to make a slightly-oversized coat, but I haven't found a pattern that I like yet.

What about the rest of you?

I am so slow that I have to plan ahead!  I just finished a short sleeve cardigan that I modified from Glampyre's mini-sweater.  I am also copying her green cabled cardigan (Mary's sweater?)  only I am using up some cream colored Lamb's pride worsted.
I am really slow though... so we'll see what I actually get done this fall. 
Oh and I am starting a Lopi sweater for the winter.
Good luck!

i'm starting my christmas scarves and hats, because i go so slow on the scarves. between family and co-workers i want time to get this done. i started knitting last christmas and people have been hinting that they would like something. although texas weather does not contribute to want to fall/winter knit. it's still freakin' hot!!

hmm... everything I'm making/ thinking about making at the moment is sort of autumnal, then again Scottish summers are fleeting and early so there doesn't seem much point in knitting things I'm not going to get the chance to wear until next year.
And a woolen jumper is useful all year round here anyway, I suppose its a good country to knit in really

I am one of those pathological project starters. I have tons of ideas and follow through on some. I stink at patterns so I try to "do my own thing" a lot. Right now I am hatching a scheme to make a scarf that is inspired by autumn leaves. I want to sew on hand knit leaves and maybe branches onto a scarf with a black background.  I have yet to find a pattern for the kind of leaves I want to "applique" onto the scarf. So I am making it up as I go a long with little success. Anyone have any ideas on how to form the leaves? I tried using the SnB Nation pattern for the headband, but those leaves are not what I am envisioning. Ironically ( I am not the best artist) I can sketch the leaves I want but do not know how to bring them to life in knit form. Maybe I should post this as a separate question!

Well, I've got some gift knitting to do - there seems to be a huge crop of babies in my life this year, and my fiance's birthday is the day after the wedding, so I'm going to be knitting him a curse-free sweater - but I really want to knit myself the bark sweater from loop-d-loop.

hmm, I had also thought about making my mom that gorgeous peacock lace shawl for her b-day nov 1.  That could sure suck up some time, though.  I'll just have to see what happens, I guess!

I'm dying to knit the Stepping Out Coat from Hip to Knit!  I just need to find the perfect fall yarn!
