When that all goes down, the stash enhancement will be far and few between! For those who know me well, I'll survive the drought.
In the meantime, I could not resist this little gem at the shop today. After all, it is my color and would be a nice little Spring cowl.
I gave up all of my knitting magazine subscriptions some time ago, because I just don't have the room for them (which reminds me that my collection is going to have either follow me to the new house or well, I am just not thinking about that right now). Anyway, I picked up the latest on a couple at the shop today and the mailman brought me the Summer Patternworks catalog.
They all have some designs in them that I really want to cast on like right now! Problem is, I really am going to have to see if I don't have something in the yarn room that I could knit them out of, which will mean some math on the patterns.
From Vogue, this one is out of Koigu Kersti. It's a finer yarn than I have yardage for in any of the yarns that I have in the yarn room. But, I loved this one from the first look. This one would need me to get on it like right now, if I intend to be able to wear it this Spring.
Also, from Vogue, this vest could be knit from a DK. Hmmm, I happen to have a thought on what I could knit it out of, but that would mean that the yarn that was destined for a shawl/pullover might have to be scrapped. This one I will have to give some more thought to.
I really like this pullover! It is out of Spud and Chloe Fine. And again, I just do not think I have anything in the yarn that I can sub out for the yarn. But, perhaps a bit of math and I might be able to duplicate out of something else. I'll need to go to the spring/summer section of the yarn room and see what might jump out.
Don't you just love this cover sweater With a bit longer sleeves, I so think this one is doable. And so Summer like, don't you think?! I have some Baby Bunny that I think is a possibility!
Amazing what it does for one's mental health!
