It is so funny when I think about knitting and which direction I want to go and then every where I turn on blogs and podcasts, someone else has an equally brilliant idea. It would seem the latest greatest idea is knitting sweaters! I have always been a proponent of local yarn shops promoting classes in sweaters as a second knitting project. I still don't get why my three local yarn shops don't do more of it, but, well, that is a whole nuther post/soapbox.
Susan B. Anderson blogged about her sweater chest a couple of weeks ago, which gave me an ah ha moment. It would seem that she keeps her sweaters in a cedar chest/hope chest. Hey, I inherited one of those, why didn't I think about putting my sweaters in it last Spring instead of my plastic bins?
If you haven't read Susan's Blog lately or watched her videos, you really should. She has a great idea going over there to knit 10 or 12 sweaters that are your go to sweaters. I whole heartedly agree. That is kind of what I tried to do with my Knit and Fit 2014 earlier this year.
Yesterday, Bonne Marie of Chic Knits, launched a new sweater for this Fall. I especially liked the way she presented it on her website, the four sweaters she showcased at the bottom really caught my eye as well. I have said it before, but I really like Bonne Marie's patterns. They fit me, give me some shaping where I need it, I just like them.
One of the podcasts that I listen to while in the car is The Knitmore Girls, I've blogged about them before. They are getting on the bandwagon with the The Knit Girllls and Susan for a longterm KAL of knitting sweaters. Hmmm, who would of thunk of a better idea?!
I'm in of course. I will, however, be reprising my Knit and Fit 2014 because, hey there is still time, won't you join me? What sweaters are you knitting this Fall?
