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.
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!)
