It’s pretty obvious when I’m procrastinating. That’s when I shop online. But, you should be thanking me because I’ve found some amazing patterns today. I’m at the point in my current project where I have to think and as soon as I finish this blog post, I’m getting back to knitting.
These are the patterns I added to my Ravelry library, or purchased elsewhere online today.
This is Balas Ruby Raglan which is a Vera Sanon design and is in the current issue of KnitScene. I will probably use Miss Babs Yummy 3 Ply Sport yarn for this but I don’t have the yarn and I haven’t ordered any and probably will not til much later in the year. I will make this sweater longer but I love the sleeves.
I’ve been looking at Cora for a while. Now that I’m losing weight, I think I’ll be happy wearing this sweater. In my stash is a periwinkle colored DK yarn that might work if I have enough of it.
The photo on the front of Alpehgluhen doesn’t do it justice but if you look at some of the projects made by others, it’s gorgeous. I have a tweedy yarn in my stash that might work for this. I’ll probably make a swatch with some cables and see what I think about the yarn in the stash.
Until a conversation with Nicole last week, I had no idea who Lala Loopsy was but I think Addie would love this little hat. I’ll have to buy yarn for that . . next time I’m at Hobby Lobby or JoAnn’s.
Go Buffalo! will be so cute for Addie in purple and gold . . LSU colors to make her daddy happy. I think I have Cascade 220 Superwash that will work for this project.
Minimalist Cardigan is one I’ve looked at for a while. I don’t know that I have yarn for it but it’s another one that I’ll wait a while before ordering. I like that it has no buttons and the sleeves are 3/4 length. It looks like something I’d get a lot of wear from if I chose the right yarn and color.
Do you like any of those projects? OK . . back to knitting so I can finish this project and get started on something else. I have lots of yarn to get knitted up! 🙂
