Anyone besides me remember my decision to work on my sweaters-in-progress rather than starting new sweaters all the time? Well I’ve avoided the issue all together by knitting nothing but mitts (gloves, mittens, etc…) for most of the summer*. But I’m closing in (just 5 mitts left!) on done with that knitting, and I’m itching to start something new. Since I never starting that spring cardigan I was dreaming of back in April I guess I’m skipping it and moving on to dreams of FALL cardigans. Mmmm, yes. And I have help. The fall issue of Interweave Knits landed in my mailbox last week, and Fall Twist Collective went live yesterday. I’ve already been stash diving, so I can tell you I have 950 yards of bulky yarn (cascade eco wool) 1400 yards of aran weight (bartlett fishermans) and 1750 yards of DK (peace fleece) SO! With those high yardages in my stash I ought to be able to knit whatever pattern suites my fancy.
So here’s a list of cardigans-I-wish-I-had-time-to-knit:
simple, draping, ok, maybe I just love that shade of red (and it’s not in my stash) also I love this style of collar, because I also love:
texture, and that collar again…
and I’m renewing my love for Stormsvale
but I think I’ve already decided that I’d want a more neutral color of peace fleece (than the purple in my stash) for the body of this…
Probably better off in wool than alpaca (convenient how I have wool in my stash, not alpaca, yes?)
such a pretty texture, and the collar calls to me…
and from last year (for good measure) the leitmotif cardigan
because I love cables, we’ve covered that, yes?
Also from this season I think Leaflet would look awesome with long sleeves. (don’t get me started on short sleeved sweaters again)
There are so many good ones, but these keep coming up when I poke around Ravelry, as if they’re part of some sort of recurring dream…
Dark and Stormy
a cardigan with cables AND that collar I like?!
Look at that fabulous hood!
The Starfish Cardigan calls to me with pretty textured bits.
Which do you like best?
What are you planning (or dreaming) of knitting this fall?
