If you are anything like me as you are working up one project you have the next one in mind, and the next, and the next. I can get lost for hours perusing different knitting sites and planning what’ll be next on my needles. Here are a couple of things that are on my queue. Whether it’ll be what I’ll cast on next or a project for down the road these guys have my attention.
First off, I have accepted that I am a sock knitter. I think that socks should always be in your WIP collection. Rose City Roller Littles Edition by Mara Catherine Bryner are next on my needles. They are the cutest little socks that seem like you could knit them up in an hour. My mom has collected some of her ends and bits from her sock making for me that’ll make up some awesome socks for a toddler. ‘Cuz who needs matching socks? Not a 1.5 year old… or me for that matter.
To go along with my sock obsession I really want to try the different methods for knitting them. Most people go with the magic loop or the double pointed needles method. I have heard that these 9 in needles can really speed up the process. It won’t work well for baby socks but I want to give it a go for some adult tootsies.
When I saw this pattern I knew that I had to have it. The Witching Hour by Dear Ingenue is one of the coolest colorwork sweaters. This is definitely not your grandmammy’s sweater. It makes me want to binge watch ’21 Monkeys’ tv series.
I have recently fallen for cropped sweaters. They are so versatile. You can dress it up or dress it down. That makes Ursa by Jacqueline Cieslak on my list. Its a simple raglan construction top with great detailing and with bulky yarn it’ll knit up in a jiffy. I think it’ll be a good sweater to do for when you need a relaxing, tv watching project.
I love all of Samantha Stadler’s patterns. Most of them are free too if you go to her blog https://samsweaterz.com/. I can’t decide which I like more the Split Back Tank or the Calion. Either one would be great and airy for summertime!
This is really just the readers digest version of my ever growing ‘want to knit’ list. There are so many creative designers out there that keep my list never ending. What’s one of your dream knits?
