Knitting is no longer only for old lady's and you grandma it's popular again! You are going to need a scarf and hat this fall and winter anyway so why not make the yourself. It's easy not difficult and on this site you can find some patterns to get started! (it's in Dutch I'm sorry)
But if you have more knitting skills and are looking for a challenge, or just want to make something different that you regular scarf and hat, try to make some fun creatures from wool! I found this amazing wool creatures on http://jpolka.blogspot.com and it's so funny and creative you should try it yourself.
