Day Dreamer


Oh I am laboring away at my current projects.  Mainly my featherweight cardi has been the focus of my knitting time.  Once again, I am swearing off this long project.  Knowing full well I will knit it again when my memory dims at how long it takes.  There is something about lace weight yarn that draws me in.


Today I'm sharing some lovely ideas that float around in my head of future possible projects.  I say possible because I change my mind so much.  Or I wait so long to start a new project that I don't feel like doing that project (It's like picking out what to wear in the morning).  The top photo is Madelinetosh merino light.  The colorway name is "wicked".  LOVE IT!  The bright pink yarn (that I have shown here before) is araucania itala.  I have three skeins of this fingering weight yarn for a sweater as well

My sweater pattern that I chose is Same Same.  It is a top down construction but instead of a yoke or raglan sleeve, this pattern creates a set in sleeve!!!  I am so excited to try this new method.  I am a huge fan of top down construction and thought why not.  It feels so Elizabeth Zimmerannish to embark on a new knitting technique.



This laceweight yarn is 50 percent wool and 50 percent silk.  I think it would make a fantastic citron!  There is tons of yardage so I think I could make it very large.

So as you plug away at your current knits, do you have day dreams of what you want to start?

(psst.  I will talk about sock construction next week as I finish up the foot of the sock and the toe-I must finish my featherweight!)

  1. I LOVE THAT PURPLE YARN!!! gosh, it's gorgeous!!! Like you, I dream---then redream projects---and change my mind a gazillion times before I settle in. I can never understand folks who can buy yarn for one project---then make that one thing (with nothing else started!!!!!!) and complete it before going on to something else. b-o-r-i-n-g!!! (to me, obviously, not to them!!!!!)

  2. I really want to start my own citron. I also have some yarn dedicated for some socks. I like this idea of a post! I should go get out some of my yarn and write it down (blog it!) even just as a reminder for myself!

  4. Wicked is beyond beautiful Karen.I have never knit with Madolinetosh, but one day! I am one of those people that buys yarn for certain projects, not changing my mind; maybe it's a newbie thing? Oh well, I know whatever you decide I will be drooling over!

  5. I am loving that Wicked yarn! When it gets cooler again I am dreaming of some projects for myself. A sweater or maybe the Citron that you have posted about!

  6. Okay love the wicked yarn, gorgeous. No dreams here, I have a few projects lined up that have to get done for some babies who will be making an appearance in the fall. As soon as those are done then I can dream :)

  7. I am always thinking ahead to my next project. The knitting is done on my que sera; I just need to sew in the sleeves. Next up are two sweaters (garter stitch swingy sweater and nanook) as well as the Stephen West mystery shawl. Of course there are still socks to finish and socks to start. In the meantime I change my mind and think of new things I want to make.

  8. So far I have been able to just knit squares- blankets and scarves...I am having trouble increasing and decreasing. Eventually I would like to make a triangle shawl.

  9. That Madeline Tosh yarn is so gorgeous!

    I also daydream of future projects (and change my mind a lot too!) but sometimes I think I may daydream too much and knit too little ;)

  13. Adore the colors in Wicked, reminds me of stormy skies over the ocean down here. It just occurred to me that I have a long car ride plus a flight in just a few days and NO PROJECT. I need to visit my stash - quick!
