ten on tuesday: fall/winter knitting plans
posted by soe 12:59 am

Today’s Ten on Tuesday topic is 10 Things I Want to Knit this Fall/Winter:

  1. A baby sweater or two (I buy the yarn to knit for the babies in my life but then fail to follow through. I really should get on pre-birth knitting, because babies insist on getting bigger as time goes on…)
  2. A new pair of fingerless mitts — perhaps these or these.
  3. A pair of mittens or two — perhaps these or these.
  4. Rudi’s cycling socks — He bought the yarn for them several years ago and I knit the first sock, but it doesn’t fit. I need to knit him a pair before the cold-weather biking season begins.
  5. Left Front of Hey, Olympian!

  6. I’d like to revive one of the sweaters I’ve started. Hey Teach is probably the likeliest contender, but it could be one of the others.
  7. A new hat — I cast on Roebling the other day out of yarn I bought at the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival in May, but I need to get further along to see if the gauge is way off like I fear it might be.
  8. A new winter sweater. It’s been several years since I made my Every Day Cardigan, and, honestly, it’s really not good to wear it every day. Maybe just every other day…
  9. A lacy scarf — People on one of the Ravelry boards I’m on have been working on that both is pretty and seems to knit up quickly.
  10. Another shawlette — My Citron knit up really quickly and is very versatile.
  11. Who am I kidding? I could have filled this whole list with socks. Heck, I probably have ten pairs that are in progress, let alone the ones I haven’t started yet but would like to.
