Found my Fall Must-Have Sweater While I'm in no way ready for Fall to actually arrive, I have been thinking about what to make for the prime sweater-wearing season. I have two main criteria in mind: something I can wear to work and something which uses stash yarn. Linden was in the running and so was Bonnie. (Isn't the Twist Collective Zine great?!). I have yarn for both in the stash; Jo Sharp Silkroad Aran Tweed in Ash and Rowan Yorkshire Tweed Aran in a beautiful blue repectively. But both of those are more cavorting-in-the-leaves sweaters. I will probably make both of them, but not right now. This is the sweater I need to make. Baby Cables and Big Ones Too. It's the feminine version of Cobblestone. I love that it's dk, I love the little cables. I love it all. And, I have some Zara in a pretty Stone colour that will work perfectly. I'm trying hard not to start it right away though, I have a few things in the work basket that I should pay attention to. I've been working on my second Vinterblomster mitten since I finished Hip in Hemp (thanks for all the comments, I LOVE this skirt, it wears great), and I need to assemble Vino so I have it to wear this Autumn. I've also been neglecting my poor Bohus, Grey Mist, which is another good work piece. I need to take it out, establish where I left off (I keep saying I will take better notes, and never do), and get to work on it. It's only plain stockinette, nothing more complicated than knitting socks, and still relatively portable. It's time to get to it. I did pull the Zara out of the stash last night though and printed and read through the pattern. I just want one of those three things finished before I get right into this new one.
