I woke up the other day with a need to knit all the garments. Suddenly, shawls and cowls just seemed…meh. Do you ever get that way? Just out of the blue you turn on things you were loving?
I suspect it has something to do with the weather. Our weather has been closer to San Francisco than anywhere in the Northeast. It already feels like fall. I find myself dreaming about apple crisp, cranberry bread and Halloween.
So my crazy obsession got me thinking about the garments that I have in progress. I have a few…
Elisbeth – perfect color and I think I’ll get a lot of wear out of it.
3 in 1 – fun color combo and a great casual option that feels a bit “more”
Overlynd – love the color and worsted weight pullover will see a lot of wear
Elfe – I like the colors but I’m going to frog it; I’ve just lost the love.
Hitofude – I treated myself to 3 skeins of Dream in Color Jilly the other day – in the Victoria colorway. I couldn’t resist this pattern any more.
And then a couple I’m thinking about…
Crazy Stripes Tee – using the Elfe yarn and probably at least one other. I like the pop of a different color in there and doesn’t it look crazy fun to knit?
And then I need to remember that rhinebeck is only two months away. Two months people. Wow. So I really should hold off on starting more garments until I get up there because there’s never a shortage of inspiration.
Yeah like that’ll happen.
Are you already focusing on fall knitting? What are you working on? Let me live vicariously through you for a bit.
I’ll catch you on the purl side.
