Without even considering the projects I already have in progress, I got to thinking today about what knitted items would be nice to have in my wardrobe this fall. I thought it would be nice to have a couple of medium-weight cardigans and maybe a pullover or two.
Wouldn't you know, I just happen to have these very items already in progress!! Looks like I'll have to get off my duff and finish the orange and green cardigans as well as the February Lady Pullover and the Freedom Sweater that were started years ago (close to ten years ago on the Freedom Sweater). The green sweater needs to have its sleeves re-knitted since they are waaaaaaaay too snug. I don't remember where I was at on the orange mohair cardigan. The February Lady Pullover got set aside in favor of the February Lady Cardigan that I knit for my sister's birthday a couple years ago. (She couldn't decide which version she wanted and I happened to buy enough yarn for one of each so I decided that I'd get the version she didn't pick.)
There will, of course, have to be sock knitting as well. Sis picked out and purchased yarn for at least two, if not three, pair of socks. I've got the yarn matched up with patterns already and just need to do the knitting. My current stash of handknit socks is wearing thin, so I have to keep up with the replenishment knitting (which frankly isn't as much fun as just knitting for the heck of it). I'll have to come up with some crazy scheme to make that more fun.
