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

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!

Ok so … it’s Winter in Australia at the moment … :)
That doesnt mean I cant be inspired by the Fall 2011 Fashion Trends in New York!!
Fall in the US begins in late September, and apparently, the Palette is Sensible & Spirited … Inspiration for dyeing I say! :D
