I have started knitting more again in the last 9 months. I’m so pleased about this because I have a lot, A LOT, of yarn that needs knitting up. Unfortunately most of my efforts the last 9 months have required me to rip them back out because they’ve proven to be too big. Some of this was because I actually followed the instructions instead of instinct, but mostly it’s because I’m out of practice after hardly touching my needles for two years.
I have so many hand knit socks, scarves, and hats that I want to move on to knitting more substantial things. There will definitely be more socks, scarves and hats in my future, bur right now, I want something else. I’ve got a hexagon blanket on the go for myself, but this is a long-term knit, and more suitable to cool autumn nights since it’s 100% wool.
I used to be a avid (more like rabid) user of Ravelry. I’d sign in multiple times every day to look at the forums, browse patterns, check out my friends’ progress on projects and what gems they’ve discovered. It’s incredibly easy to get lost in the site and never knit a stitch. I actually end up feeling so overwhelmed by how much stuff there is out there that I’d love to knit, but will never get to in this lifetime. Trying to decide on a single project is so overwhelming because the choices are seemingly endless!
So, up next I’d like to knit a jumper/sweater of some sort that will see me through those chilly autumn nights and into the winter, and spring. (I get warm easily so I like layers versus one heavy layer.)
But I cannot decide what to actually knit! So, help! What should I knit? Options below, click to embiggen the options if you want a closer look. These are in no particular order…
Wayside lace cardigan (a wrap-style cardigan)
Baby cables and big ones too (pullover)
Paulie cardigan (I have a herb green in the same yarn that I can use for contrasting stripes) – I like this but not entirely sure I can be bothered with using a different weight yarn.
That’s my whittled down list hahaha. So what says you, internet?
