I'm finally knitting the last rows (ok, about 4" worth) of the Lace Top. I'm excited about it too. So far it's looking good. ;)
Anyway, because I'm nearing the end of that project, I know I'll need a new project, perhaps as soon as tomorrow!
I have the Aeolian shawl on the needles but I'm SO not motivated to work on it. I also don't feel like reading the directions for the edging. (whistles nonchalantly) I want to knit something relaxing and a bit mindless.
I have some design stuff I really need to work on, but personally even though I enjoy designing, it's definitely NOT relaxing knitting. So for now, designing is out.
What to do?
I have several sweaters in my Rav queue I really want to cast on for. Unfortunately I don't have the patterns for my current favorites: Pucker by Norah Gaughan and the Classic Silk Open Cardi by Pam Allen.
My LYS has the Norah Gaughan book, but the Classic Elite book is trickier, I'm going to a new yarn store tomorrow and I'll see if they have it there. I don't really like ordering online unless I have to so I'm hoping to find it in a shop somewhere!
I also don't have the yarn, and I do want to de-stash a little more before buying more.
But I do have yarn and patterns for:
Arisag by Ysolda and the Lovegood Cardi by CanarySanctuary
I don't want to cast on for Arisag yet, because I think the colour of yarn I chose will fit the Autumn season better than the Spring season. I also might be a little nervous about the the seaming. I may just mod this into a bottom-up raglan actually...
Lovegood. Have the yarn and love it. But, it's closer to a sportweight (Lovegood calls for a DK) so I really need to swatch and evaluate it.
Here it goes I guess!
