New Inspiration

So I’m bored. I’ve done as much Christmas knitting as I can muster. I am making good headway with my sister’s wedding present. And I’m a bit bored. I’m looking for the next challenge to get my teeth into. Something that will make me rush chores so I can pick up my needles again. So I’ve started looking around for the next project. I know that I have a list of “requests” but they’ve waited this long so I guess a few ore weeks won’t matter…

I always enjoy seamless knitting. My first jumper I ever knitted was this beautiful top down seamless cabled number – Baby Cables and Big Ones Too by Suvi Simola:

How about this scabbard from Stitch Diva?

What’s on your needles at the moment?

    I knit the Svetlana Volkova design last fall, and it’s really a beautiful sweater. I get comments on it wherever I go! I love the wide lace panel in the back πŸ™‚

    Oh gosh, what choices! I just can’t decide which of Kate Davies new “Yokes” patterns to knit first!

  4. I love the Kate Davies one. All of my knitting is unpublished designs at the moment, but I’m way excited to buy and start some GAL patterns this weekend!
