Wednesday WIPs and Thoughts

Do you ever make awesome knitting plans only to find that you simply do not have the time to dedicate yourself to your plans ?  Well that’s me at the moment.  

I can say that so far I have managed to finish the cuff of my second sock and about 2” of stockinette.  I love it when my stripes match, and it looks like I’m off to a great start.

As mentioned Sunday I casted of my Gloam cardigan and I am now getting ready to start the pattern design.  Now I can honestly say I truly love the Silky Wool and while this is simple knitting, I am finding it tedious knitting with DK yarn.  I tend to enjoy quick projects, that’s why I love bulky yarn!  I will get past this and continue, knowing that deep down this project will take much longer than a month.


I have been looking through my yarn stash trying to plan out projects for the remainder of the year.  Socks are a given, and maybe even a scarf or shawl, and for me these types of projects do not require much planning, so I am looking at cardigan and pullover possibilities.  I have enough yarn in my stash to make three cardigans and about three pullovers.

For cardigans, I am thinking these might be fun patterns to make :

Celtic Grace by Cheryl Beckerich - I have had this pattern in my stash since Cheryl released it and have enough Cascade Eco Wool fo it too!

Oxbow Cardigan by Drea Renee Knits - From my stash I will be using FiberNatura Inca Tweed Bulky and have just enough yardage for this project.

Bloch Ness by Knitspot -  From my stash I will be using Malabrigo Arroyo.

For the pullovers, I am thinking these might be fun patterns to make:

Nordiska by Caitlin Hunter - I purchased the yarn last year for this pattern and will be using Malabrigo a Susurro.

Miski Sweater by Mirasol - I haven’t decided on the yarn for this quite yet.

Weekender by Drea Renee Knits - From my stash I will be using Cascade 220 Superwash wool.

Whew.... lots of projects planned and now to find the time to knit them all!!

Until next time, be creative!
