I've included Rav link to each of the six patterns I'm considering (as well as any particular projects I like).
I'd love some feedback on these! I need serious help choosing! ;)

This came up on my Rav friend activity a while back, and I knew instantly that this would be one issue of KnitScene I had to purchase.
Gauge is about sportweight and the sweater is knit with laceweight. I have a LOT of laceweight in my stash right now, so to de-stash a bit would be fantastic. (this super yummy alpaca/silk blend is just one possibility for this knit)
Downside to the sweater? I'm currently knitting my 2nd Audrey sweater at this same yarn/gauge combo and part of me is getting a bit restless for a larger gauge. Also...according to the pattern, this has seaming. Eek.

I saw this a long while back, and thought it would be cute and cozy (maybe with a bit of modification to slim it up a bit). It's a lot of garter rib, but I do enjoy knitting that! Also, it has a very interesting construction. I probably wouldn't consider this sweater based on the pattern photo, but this project by Moonstitches is very cute.

I've had the yarn for this ever since the beginning of summer last year. I'd love to get this knit up, but it's a lot of knitting! Fingering weight gauge and all. Plus, I'd be adding several inches of length (though I'd be shortening up the sleeves too). canarysanctuary's project is worth taking a look at, such a beautiful knit (in fact, it's the reason why this pattern is so high in my queue).
4. Four used to be the Alpaka Tunic from Interweave, but last night I swatched and my yarn isn't going to work out. Sigh...someday.

This is another great sweater from the new KnitScene. I don't know that it's something that would usually be my style, but it is very cute! Worsted weight too...

Another worsted weight knit. If I knit this, I'll probably be eliminating the pockets and carrying the cables down the side.
So, that's it! Any thoughts? :)
