Always Thinking Ahead...

Yep, that's me! Although the fact that I must cook dinner still blind-sides me every day at 5:00 (and way too often involves a trip to the grocery store), I almost always have at least 1, 2 or 5 things lined up that I want to knit next... and have usually acquired the necessary yarn as well.

So, in spite of having 3 shawls, 2 pairs of socks and a cardigan on the needles (at least)... the construction of Ysolda Teague's Vine Yoke Cardigan in the fall Twist Collective is beckoning me and has planted itself firmly in my mind.



Buying yarn is a no-no right now cuz afterall "money doesn't grow on trees you know" as my parents always used to say and I now find myself repeating to my kids. But a quick survey of my stash turned up a sufficient amount of Dream in Color Classy in "Midnight Derby".

Dream in Color Classy

I had originally planned to use it for a Lady's February Sweater but just wasn't feeling the love. Now I know why... it was meant for something else.

I have to finish at least one other project first, so (assuming I don't lose interest or get otherwise distracted in the meanwhile) this will be next.

Oh, you know you will get distracted. I bet you are a Magpie, just like me! Oh, pretty......

I've been eyeing up this pattern, myself! The DIC will be awesome. :o)

Elbow sleeves are perfect for So Cal. And in DIC...so lovely. Trying not to get distracted...I've got some Aspen calling my name for swatching.

Just a few days ago, upon discovering that Ysolda pattern, I repurposed in my mind some dream in color classy in "Cocoa Kiss" that I have in stash.
What a gorgeous sweater and ingenious design!

I adore this cardigan, but until baby #3 arrives, cannot be motivated to knit for myself...I get so depressed when I finish and it doesn't fit!
