I am still finishing up my Boardwalk and Naloa, but can’t help but look to the next project as autumn knitting is in full swing. It is just that time of year!
I think I must be suffering a bit of decision fatigue as am having to make a lot of choices for the new house and just can’t decide which project should come next. A little help anyone?
Here are my choices:
The crew neck striped Japan Sleeves or the cardigan Old Romance by Joji Locatelli. I love both of these patterns and think my perfect garment might be a blend of the two – a crew neck cardigan with the lace sleeves in BEYUL. Possibly striped with yurt and a dark charcoal or navy.
Linnae Pullover in some bouncy WIMBLEDON or the joyously cabled Oranmore by Bristol Ivy in WALTHAM Aran. Both are a draw for different reasons. I have been wanting to do another colourwork jumper for autumn, but am also wanting a thickly cabled something to block out the sharp sea wind now that I am by the seaside.
I’ve been telling myself that I really need a new cardigan but then keep getting distracted by all the pretty things I am seeing! So as a compromise there is the lovely convertible Aurys
by Svetlana Volkova
that can be worn as a top OR a cardi – sort of killing 2 birds with one stone, but with quite a bit of open YO’s that might be a bit too cool for the coming months, even in DK.
Think this would be perfect in WALTHAM DK, though, and go really well with the amazing Japanese fabric I picked up at The Village Haberdashery with this Colette pattern on the yarn crawl Saturday (more on that later).
But I still can’t quite decide.
What do you think, and what are you casting on for autumn?
Now that some of you have had a chance to experience ISLINGTON
‘s gloriousness in the flesh, here are a few more newly released design suggestions for upcoming warm weather knit planning. These both call for sport weight yarns but could easily be done in fingering for the same or similar gauge.
This tank is well oversized starting at 371/4″ for its smallest size! Using fingering would be an easy way to get it a titch smaller (something I am planning!) without too much fuss.
A huge shawl, I would personally use the same needle size and have a slightly airier wrap for summer!
What are you casting on for summer?
