Feeling Wanty: August 8, 2012
Now that this site is live (hooray!), I may have time to actually knit. I can barely believe it myself.
However, I am waiting waiting waiting for the temperature to go down under 95 degrees so I can dye some darned yarn.
Meanwhile, here are some things I really really want to have (and one I already have and want more of).
The front is right up my alley, and then the back. Oh, the back. I would even include the pockets, people. Also, I want to be a person who lives in a house with a picture rail and pastels.
Next, something that I already have. The Katarina Cardigan by Julie Weisenberger of cocoknits. This is her version. Mine is knit out of Stable DK (100% SW Merino) in a one-off colorway of blue, grey, dappled green, and brown. You can wear this so many ways. Shawl pin up top, brooch, belted, pin at middle, pin at bottom, two pins, falling open. I usually let it fall open.
Also by Julie is this skirt, Isle. Gathered but not bustle-y. The ties at the hem are dead sexy, don't you think?
Last cardigan, and I think by now you'll notice a theme. Katrine, also by Cecily. I think I like the textured fronts, eh? I know I like the shawl collar, and wouldn't this be better for the short-necked-like-me with the top button undone and the neck lying flat? I think so, for me at least.
And now, finally, a pair of socks. I love German-look cables, I do. Love looking at them, but hate knitting them. All that purling is really hard on my hands. SpillyJane Knits designed these, and they're fantastic. Balearique Socks. See? Lovely.
There's plenty more that I won't be knitting this week. For that matter, there's plenty more I won't be knitting this year, either.
What has caught your fancy this week? Have startitis? Or have you burned through your Ravellenic projects already and begun the search for the next project?
