Before I show you these incredible patterns, these truly awesome finds, I just want to say I’m sorry.
- I’m sorry that I’ve given you stuff to add to your Ravelry favorites
- Because favoriting leads to queuing
- And queuing leads to yarn buying
- And yarn buying leads to casting on
- And casting on leads to neglect of housework, children, spouses, and all the other UFOs languishing in your project bag
Really, truly, I apologize. From bottom of my fibrous little heart. I couldn’t feel more culpable for enabling you, my dear readers, in your fiber addiction. I might have to buy some yarn, just to get over it.
Gorgeous textured shawls
I’ve got a thing for these layered, interesting shawls. I love the color combinations and the almost quilted or embroidered look they have. Scrumptious.
Cozy cardigans (some sassy)
In the process of searching for the right pattern to use for my stashed Black Water Abbey yarn, I’ve managed to favorite lots of yummy cabled cardigans. At this point, I don’t know how I’ll ever choose. At least I can take comfort in the fact that not all of these are right for the yarn. That doesn’t change the fact that IWANTTOKNITTHEMNOW. Every single one.
Stuff that’s so chic and modern I can’t believe it’s knit wear
These are the patterns I show people to convince them that you don’t have to dress like a fuddy-duddy to wear hand knit clothing. This is the kind of ultra-hip stuff I would expect Buffy the Vampire Slayer to wear…if that show was still on the air. Except I would worry about her getting blood and demon guts all over it. What’s the procedure for hand washing ichor out of your hand knits?
I promise to find myself a 12-step program to address this terrible problem I have, inflicting such horrible temptation on others.
Just as soon as I finish this row.
