I have too many projects I want to do! Can you have too many knitting projects, patterns, yarn? I think I’ll just have to add and delete things on this page as I go. I’d like to use up all my stash before I get too tired of it, I already sort of am tired of what I have, and with new yarn always coming out I’ll have to follow organizer Peter Walsh’s method of limits–if my limit is 3 bins, some yarn will have to go–nooooooooo!
So, in no particular order here are the pattern I can remember and find lol:) I like many but am going to pick out the patterns that are jumping out at me the most to knit (and I have more in my queue in Ravelry! but those are more like, hmm…that’s interesting maybe I should put it in my queue in case I can’t find it again) I think it’s time to follow my advice I give my mom, stop looking and perusing and start knitting more. You can find me on Ravelry as 333dragonfly. Happy knitting! 🙂
Right now I am knitting Ninebark Cowl from Knitscene Winter/Spring 2010. I also like the Paradise Beach Cover Up.
From Knitscene Spring 2012
Seberg Sweater (but definitely in a different color)
Hester Pullover (not on Ravelry yet but it’s the one on the cover of Knitscene Spring 2012)
From Custom Knits 2 by Wendy Bernard (there are more I like but will probably not knit first, but I never know what I’m going to be inspired to do or what yarn I’ll find so I’ll just put these first)
Bijou with slim pants and boots and maybe a belt
Pebbles for my son and husband
Lemon Drop Hat
And from the first Custom Knits by Wendy Bernard
I also have some Louisa Harding (Happiness, Distraction, Float, Whimsy, and Thoughtful) books, other magazines, other books, and a three-ring binder full of patterns. I’m beginning to think I have a problem lol:), it could be worse, it’s clean, fairly organized, doesn’t take toooo much time away from my family and quite frankly there are worse things.
I made Nette from Coco Knits for my mom for Christmas and after I got used to the think thick yarn I really liked it and it came out well. I shortened the sleeves a little. I think it’s a pretty flattering pattern for most people and it was easy to follow and I would knit it again. I also like Cortland, Sofia, Everyday Wrap, Fleeced Boots, Liesl, and Gretel (love the Sound Of Music).
