I finished my little yellow sweater over the holiday weekend. And I finished my Cladonia shawl the weekend before that. I have . . . nothing on my needles right now. You know what that means? Carole's Ten on Tuesday topic is Very Timely for me!
Yes. This week, Carole has us thinking about the Ten Things We'd Like to Knit this Fall/Winter.
I am FULL of ideas!
First, I need to keep plugging away on projects I've already committed to. Like. . .
1 -- My Mitered-Crosses Blanket. This one has been on hiatus for a few months. It's time to bring it back out and begin again.
2 -- Clepsydra mitten #2. Mitten #1 is complete. I finished it just in time for the spring thaw! I really lost my mitten mojo after that . . . but this weekend's chill is bringing it back.
Next, I have some deadline knitting coming up. A former co-worker is having her first baby in November. . . and I'm planning on knitting a little gift.
3 -- I'll make my Go-To baby gift -- the Wee-One Welcome Set. (The photo shows a past gift -- for a different baby. . . who is now a busy 3-year old!)
Then, I can feel the sweater-knitting bug getting ready to bite! I have some Shelter burning a hole in my stash. I just can't decide which sweater to cast on!
4 -- Levenwick?
5 -- Perry?
6 -- Sullivan?
(Actually. . . I want to knit all three. . .)
Of course, there are always accessories to consider.
7 -- The newly-released Mondo Cable Hood, for example.
Or. . .
8 -- It would be great fun to play with color a little -- and make this Dots and Stripes Purse (which would be perfect for my iPad, don't you think?).
And then. . . Erin chose some yarn for a shawl (no lace!) when she was visiting (and I dragged her to the Michigan Fiber Festival), so I do need to think about starting this one.
And, of course, there's one thing that's just hanging there in my knitting queue. . . just kind of haunting me. I'm dying to knit this one.
10 -- Elizabeth.
I have plenty of ideas; there is never a shortage of want-to-knits in my life! How about YOU? What would you like to knit this fall/winter?
