That's when I noted something which I hadn't really appreciated before ‐ you can get really cold when you are forced to sit for long periods of time. It was as though a chill was settling onto my lap and then spreading down into my knees and feet. Even on warm days, I felt uncomfortably cool and I was soon reaching for an extra layer to wrap around me.
I am sure many of us know people who cannot move around as much as they used to. Perhaps you have an older relative who now needs to rest more than when they were younger, or a friend in a wheelchair. Or perhaps you'd even welcome a new lap‐rug for yourself so that you can keep cozy when the cold, damp weather starts in earnest Extra layers are always welcome!
The photos show a new pattern, the Ennismore Lap‐Rug. I certainly found it kept my knees warm while I was working on it, so this should be a perfect choice for some autumn knitting. I'll post more details about this new throw next time, so please click the link below to read more about this new pattern. Cozy times are ahead!
