I’m starting to think about Autumn projects, despite the very warm temperature here. There is a change in the air, folks getting ready for back to school, something that still gives me a little thrill. Nothing like new notebooks and pens. They always felt like untapped potential to me, even in grade school. We’ll be with a new school board this year – thank goodness!
Anyway… On to the knitting. I know. haven’t finished the test knit yet but… I have all this yarn and… and people wanting handknits!
That’s my story, gonna knit with it. These are in my queue for September:
The Beau would look good in this sweater. I’m thinking a cotton / wool for his in chambray blue.
DSDitto has been wanting a scarf, so I’ll have to scare up something washable for him. I’m thinking a blue and burgundy variation of my denim waves scarf that I knit for DS. The girls can knit and crochet respectively, I’m thinking I should be asking someone to make something for me! I’m just about to the end of the blanket that DS requested.
For me, I am so diggin’ this sweater. Love Vanessa Smith’s designs. Modern, clean and with great attention to detail.
I couldn’t resist signing up for Stephen West’s latest KAL, Westknits Mystery Shawl KAL 2013: Colour Craving. I just purchased the pattern today and chose The Plucky Knitter’s Primo for my yarn. I am ridiculously in love with this stuff. It has been an absolute joy to work with for my test knit design – which will be finished by the weekend for sure.
And now… to the cloning facility so I can get all this done!
