It’s a Cardi Queue Up!!!

April 30, 2012 § 5 Comments

So here goes … my instant gratification knitting, has armed me with enough inspiration and stamina to get my needles stuck into some cardigans! Yes, you heard cardigans!! I cant believe it myself … those things intimate me.

For the last year, I’ve been lurking around bespoke cardigan project pages, marvelling at other knitters interpretations and use of yarns. Often wondering if I myself would have the patience or stamina to knit a cardigan myself, for myself!

Well, the wait is over! I’m there!! I have finally drooled myself into irevicable cardigan knitting submission, and have queued up 11 cardigans for my knitting pleasure!!! (I’m so excited I cant stop “!”ing … hahahah)

In no particular order of importance of preference, I give you my list ….

1. Kara by Cecily Glowik MacDonald

2. Chalet by Cecily Glowik MacDonald

3. Leaflet by Cecily Glowik MacDonald

4. Girl Friday by Mercedes Tarasovich-Clark

5. fall away cardigan by Heidi Kirrmaier

6. Acorns by Carol Sunday

7. Old Town by Carol Sunday … Interesting construction.

8. Nanook by Heidi Kirrmaier

9. Off-Rib Cardigan by Stefanie Japel

10. Rivel Cardigan by Miriam L. Felton

11. Dahlia Cardigan by Heather Zoppetti

Isn’t there something like a knitterly versions of nanowrimo?  Where you knit a shawl a month or a sweater a month for a year … OMG! I have 9 months left, can I really do this?! If I could queue and knit 5 of these cardigan, even I would be stoked.

Let me say this, if nothing else … I am abit ambitious!! :$ … hahahah … and it goes without saying abit excited too!
