I finished the cowl, and it is lovely
and so snuggly
Also cast on for a hat this week because I was so anxious to practice my corrugated ribbing with the Norwegian purl technique
Hat got finished up in the closing minutes of the Seahawks game today and is now resting after it’s bath.
And I am again between projects.
Would really like to get started on a sweater, but haven’t settled on a design yet.
I’d kind of like to do something cable-y.
But that would mean a solid color, and lots of yardage.
Or I could do some colorwork.
I kind of like to look of Absinthe
which of course has neither cables or colorwork.
But it has an interesting neckline and 3/4 sleeves which I dig.
So you can probably tell I really have no idea what direction I’m moving in.
And I can’t start the week without a project.
This is why I end up with piles of hats 🙂
The cowl IS lovely – and so are you! I HATE being between projects. If you lived closer I could loan you a couple of books that would likely inspire: Alice Starmore’s “Fishermen’s Sweaters” (cables!) and Alana Dakos’ “Botanical Knits” (several lovely sweaters; see here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/sources/botanical-knits-twelve-designs-inspired-by-trees-and-foliage/patterns).
Thanks for the link Michelle! I think I’ve found something in botanical knits that looks really promising!
