Winter season should not stop you from doing some knitting projects. In fact, knitting is a perfect indoor activity you can do despite the bed weather.
For this season, you can forget about gardening, and getting dirty with your pots and flower beds, or other outdoor activities. This is the time wherein you can snuggle all day on your couch, and still be productive. I bet this is what most moms love to do when it’s freezing outside, sipping coffee and knitting! This helps fight winter blues too. So, go and prepare your knitting needle and ball of yarn, and pick one or two knitting projects from the list below.
33 Knitting Projects You Can Make This Winter

Winter is here. And unlike most mornings when I wake up early to prepare our breakfast and pack the kids’ lunch boxes for school, I overslept a little bit. (Oops!) I made egg-in-bread to save time and kissed my family goodbye as they all headed out to work and school. When I glanced inside my usually-open-doored sewing room on my way back to the kitchen, something caught my eye. The half-finished Harry Potter inspired scarf I was meaning to give my son since last year was peeking out from my knitting basket. I shivered both from the thought of how long overdue it already was and from the cool breeze coming in from an open window. It was at that moment I knew I had to knit some more for winter (and finish the scarf of course), pronto!
Join me as we get ready for winter with these sweet and homey knitting projects. I got the knitting pattern links in the bag, it’s part the list, so knit away!
