Feeling Wanty: July 23 Edition

Posted on July 23, 2012 by Alisha

Hopefully I'll make this a weekly feature around here, showing you what I WANT TO HAVE but do not have TIME TO KNIT. Le sigh.

Now, I love to knit. But I have a lot going on. Here are some patterns that make me wish I had more spare time this week, with my wishlist yarns. Or, these patterns may make me delay dyeing, formulating, potting, gardening, baby-tending, shipping, website-making, and twisting...

Leftie by Martina Behm at Strickmich! Available on Ravlery here. Multiple colors! Skinny shawl! Awesome even if you don't do the little leaves. I'm thinking Artemesia as a main color, with accents in Parthia, Pompey, and Autumn.


The Holden Shawlette by Mindy Wilkes. I have had this in my queue for ages. Ages. And holy moly, over 4200 people have knit it as of right now. I'm very behind. I'll take mine in... Panoply Fingering in Fog, since I like the original so much.


Mother's Lace Cardigan from Stephanie Japel's new book, Mom & Me Knits: 20 Pretty Projects for Mothers and Daughters. DK weight here, and although I'd love to use Bevy DK, 50/50 Superwash and Silk, I think it would be too heavy. I'm going with Pulchritude DK, an 80/10/10 MCN that goes 230 yards per skein. In Charcoal. (As an aside: Stephanie in person is taller and more gorgeous than you already think she is. Lucky girl.)

Well, that should keep me busy for a week, don't you think? Do me a favor: Since I'm not going to get to any of these this week, maybe some of you could? Good luck!
