February Finds – On My Struggles to Stay Triogamous
There’s nothing like a yarn diet combined with an important long-term project to make the eyes wander.
I am only allowed three open projects right now:
The wedding shawl
The not-a-boyfriend-sweater cardigan (which I was supposed to finish before Christmas)
A pair of socks
But I can’t seem to stay triogamous. I don’t think I’ve ever favorited so many new patterns on Ravelry as I have during the last few weeks.
I don’t think woman was ever meant to limit herself to just three knitting projects. It’s against nature…or at least it’s against my nature.
Pain shared is pain halved right? So I’m going to share some of the delightful patterns that have me in agonies right now.
I’m Living in Sweater Dresses Right Now
I have a trio of gorgeous sweater dresses I’ve been pairing with leggings and wearing to work the last couple of months. I would love to have a few more in my wardrobe to provide variety. These gorgeous designs by Kristina McGowan are just the ticket.
Bright, Graphic Shawls That are Definitely NOT Lace
I love my Romi Hill lace wedding shawl, I truly do. All the same, my next shawl project is sooooo not going to be lace. I’m going for something fierce and bold and colorful. Perhaps one of these showstoppers:
This One’s for Grandpa
When I come to the end of this yarn and project diet I’m going to let loose. I’m going to be as unruly and pleasure-seeking as a parochial school girl on her first day at a public university. Watch out, world. Here I come, needles a-clacking.
I have had this one in my faves for a long time, but don’t’ know if I am up to translating the Danish!
I seem to like Danish designers, I don’t know what it is .
That’s a really cute dress. I see why you like it.
oh now i need to knit a dress. all of these patterns are gorgeous!
What an amazing collection of patterns – love that shawl! Thank you for sharing.
Great finds and I especially love the Eden Prairie, very beautiful!
Reblogged this on Hannah Rose and commented:
I love the red dress so much!!!
The red dress is really nice! So is the Eden Prairie.
Q – Geeze, stray is what got me into the “too-many- WIP- mess”, it truely is hard to start monogomous, diogomous or even triogomous. There is always a new temptation out there! The “art” shawls a gorgeous!! Hum…….
Oh no, I just favorited pretty much everyone of those. That’s just so mean of you!
That Dreambird shawl is amazing. I wouldn’t ever wear it, but I might just hang it on the wall. Because pretty.
Just three WIP oh courageous. Those patterns are lovely but I’m not sure I’ll like to wear handknitted dresses, well maybe because I don’t wear dresses except on special days. The shawl is very graphic!; Thanks for the links.
Dang it. I don’t need any more projects!! But alas, now I am aware that a sweater dress is a neccessity! Plus, I like your use of triogamous. I currently only have two WIP so I most definitely need a third!
Indeed 3 projects is not enough ! I love the Museum Tunic and the promenade dress, and the goose ! Is a lifetime enough to knit all these wonderful patterns on ravelry ?
The day after I wrote this post, I cast on another shawl. What am I now? Tetrogamous? Not for long, I bet.
Love those sweater dresses! That bold scarf is spectacular. Did you decide to make it?
I’m making a different one that I had appropriate stash yarn form. But I am still tempted.
Very pretty dresses! I particularly like the red one and the last one. I’ve always been reluctant to wear sweater dresses because of stretching around the bum whilst wearing them, but I might have to change my ideas. Too much to knit and too little time! 🙂
Eden Prairie is gorgeous. Definitely one to add to the queue!!
[…] is typically the time when CaityRosey does one of her amazing posts showcasing all the pretty patterns she’s found this week – but I will resist. Just […]
