– 2018/35 – knitting inspiration

So… I still haven’t been skiing.  I was going to try today.. but the weather is absolutely awful (or beautiful… because let’s face it, watching the snow falling on dark pine trees is pretty beautiful, right?) and it’s snowing quite heavily and I don’t think that poor visibility, snow drifts and unknown pistes are a good match to a back who’s not really one hundred per cent fine.  Tomorrow the forecast is for sun and blue sky, I’ll go then.

Frustrating.

To counter that, I’ve spent a lot of time knitting – and I finished both mittens – and I’m currently searching Ravelry and Insta for a stranded knitted sweater.  I need simple colour work, reasonably size needles and non fitted shape.  I want a cozy warm number.

So far I’m tempted by the three following items:

Irene Lin‘s Boho Style Mosaic Cardigan.  This is a recently released pattern and I’m not sure I would know how to do the colour work part… but I do like a challenge and this looks so cozy and… that fringe detail! C’mon peeps, who doesn’t love a fringe?

This next pattern has been in my Ravelry library for ages, years probably.  It’s called “Ready for Fall” by Isabell Kramer.  I like how the motif is at the bottom of the jumper.

There is another pattern by Isabell that has caught my attention and it’s called “Humulus“; I think they would both look amazing in black with the pattern in white.

Or maybe this one… and that would definitively be a test for my skillz…. all those colours! “Birkin” by Caitlin Hunter.

I could go on and on… there are so many wonderful designs out there but I keep returning to these…

 

Any more suggestions… ping them my way!

  1. Do hope you get outside tomorrow–though watching the snow and knitting sounds perfect to me! They are all gorgeous but you have to tell me what the grey one in the upper left is so I can add it to my list! Then you must teach me this wondrous skill–there is a sweater my Yoked book I’ve wanted to knit for so long (as well as a pair of cute mittens and that jumper in the upper left corner!). K xx
