Knits in abundance!
Everywhere I look I see AMAZING knits I am simply chomping at the bit to have a go at.
An email from Loop had me smiling and drooling over these..

The patterns are available here at Tiny Owl Knits and here at Loop. Loop is a fantastic shop and used to sell the amazing Swallow coloured milk casein knitting needles that I love from Australia. They've not had them in a long while which is such a shame. I keep meaning to get my brother-in-law to send me some over. There are many many 'salivating on chin' patterns available and gorgeous yarn, really gorgeous yarn. It's also one of those mail order shops that wrap your purchases with such care that you almost don't want to open them. Of course you do. No amount of well wrapped tissue is going to keep from my new yummy yarn for a squeeze. I love a squeeze of a ball of yarn. One of the many reasons why I like a good quality yarn; acrylic doesn't lend itself to an enjoyable squeeze! If you have never had a look at Loop, I urge you to do so.
The latest post from the purl bee is full of more temptation...

These images encompass warm tummy favourites of mine; socks, wrist warmers, blankets, stripes and rib stitch. I love ribs in knitting, ribs and moss! As the leaves start to turn I find myself day dreaming about yarn, Brittany crochet hooks and knitting needles. Does anyone else?
If you have never visited the purl bee, please do. It's very inspiring , full to the gunnels with crochet, knitting and sewing patterns.
Lastly, this blanket. Again with the hexes!! From Tiny Owl Knits:

Are they not gorgeous? Is the blanket not gorgeous? I am waiting to see if I am lucky enough to win the pattern from a competition at the mollie makes blog, if not I am so so so buying it here or here.
My heart lies on a hexagon blanket!
So much temptation...
