All I can see is the fire in your eyes
The Drop-Stitch Lace Tank is finished and blocked. Sometime this week I will take a deep breath, sew it up, and find out whether it fits.
That means I’m ready to cast on a new project, and I think it’s time for holiday gift knitting. More fingerless gloves, no doubt; a scarf or two; perhaps a handsome hat; there might even be some hand towels in my future. The stash is certainly primed and ready.
But what patterns? Let me throw that question out to all of you. Here are the yarns I’d like to use (links are to Ravelry stash for those who know the secret password):
- 200 yards of worsted-weight 100% Mongolian cashmere in variegated harvest colors eta: this is a tough one … Gillian?
- 250 yards of Classic Elite Bazic (a tight-twist, high stitch-definition aran-weight wool), in a citrine green eta: Foliage?
- 275 yards of Knit Picks Wool of the Andes hand-dyed (the yarn I used for my Clapotis)
- 250 yards of Louisa Harding Kimono Angora (DK weight) in a purple-pink variegated colorway eta: saw a lovely lace scarf using this stitch pattern …
- 240 yards of Knit Picks Decadence (bulky weight alpaca), bluish eta: I’m thinking cowl
- the various cotton yarns of the Knit Picks Renaissance sampler (1 each of Comfy, Shine Worsted, Crayon, CotLin, Main Line) — about 100 yards of each
- 400 yards of Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light (sportweight) in a bluish mix
- 200 yards of Classic Elite Renaissance (aran weight) in blue-gray, the same yarn I used for my Dashing) eta: hm, maybe Liesel?
- 190 yards of Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool (DK weight), the same yarn I used for my Simple Knitted Bodice) eta: I’ve got this one: Branching Out
- plenty of Patons Classic Merino (worsted) in red eta: could be an Irish Hiking Scarf and/or accessories
- more Peaches & Creme and Sugar’n Cream than I could ever list
