cast on all the things
I’m participating in the My Sister’s Knitter WIP KAL – kicking off this Monday, September 1st. We’re all feverishly casting on projects this weekend so we have more WIPs to work on.
I realize this may be contrary to the spirit of a WIP KAL, but it’s TONS OF FUN!
I’ve been looking through my rav faves and new designs and have a few that I’m considering.
Raspberry Tart just came out this week and omg the love. Top down, wider neckline, fun cables.
Baby Cables and Big Ones Too – now that I’m a smaller size I think this one will be a flattering fit and I love the juxtaposition of the cables against the garter stitch.
Auri also just came out this week too. Love the three related colors making a lovely gradient.
Hitchhiker in the Tuxedo yarn I got a few weeks ago. I think the yarn needs garter and a black and white long scarf will see a lot of use this winter.
Jet Set Cowl looks like a lot of fun to knit and a highly wearable piece too.
Brush Creek Cowl but of course I want it in a slow color change yarn like Noro Sock (which I don’t have).
Starshower is so pretty for a solid or semi-solid sock yarn. And I have a few to choose from.
Riverbank looks great as a cowl or a capelet. Love the versatility.
Clepsydra uses twisted stitches to make a pretty zigzag pattern
Grove uses twisted stitches but makes a leafy pattern instead
And then Merion has tiny Maypole cables on the face of the mittens.
That’s Twelve – Count ’em Twelve – projects
Well a few of them are possible cast ons. I don’t expect to cast on all twelve but I do think I’ll probably cast on 4 to 6 of them though.
I’ll catch you on the purl side.
