BUT looking at every pattern a couple times, I have found a few that I am getting quite excited about knitting.
I like Ice Queen. I love the cover shot, and I like the idea of the mohair/ lace with beads. Actually I already have a skein of Rowan Kidsilk Haze kicking around and some beads that would look great with the color. I wish it was the periwinkle color that they show it in. Mine will be in dark brown unless I wait until next year because alas- I am not buying yarn at the moment.
I really like Dahlia. I’m not crazy about this fad that’s all about the empire waist only because I don’t find empire waistes that look good on me often. Most of the time I look pregnant. It is sad because I love an empire waiste, and I love the victorian feeling of the look. I’m hoping Dahlia will be different- a fitted empire. I might knit it in order to find out. I think it would look nice in yellow.
I LOVE the idea of Justify, but I don’t think I would actually wear it. Maybe if I made it bigger.
I want to like Abotanicity (even if I can’t pronounce the name), but I’m pretty sure it would look awful on me. Sad but true–
I love Jeanie. It seems like a big undertaking. I don’t have sock yarn kicking around, but I might have to get some to make this shawl. It might make a good summer knitting project.
AND Fair Isle Rapids– LOVE IT! But I don’t think the men in my life would. I could make it for myself.
