To do list...

Since I haven't been around in a bit, I'm going to share some projects that I would like to complete before January. I need to add some things to my teacher wardrobe, so why not make a few of them myself? Currently this is just a few knitted patterns, but I think I'll add some sewing patterns later. (All the patterns are linked to their Ravelry page, which is also where I'm borrowing the photos from.)

First, obviously, is the Cadence sweater for the KAL. I have some Patons Classic Wool in Jade Heather waiting to be cast on. (I'm so excited for this.)

Owls are my favorite birds and this sweater is something I've wanted to do for ages, but just haven't had the courage to try. But I think it will definitely be my next project after Cadence is done. I think I'm going to try the Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Bulky, probably in Porcini, Wallaby, or Silver. Something owl colored for it.

The Coffee Tunic would be nice to wear as well. Tunics are some of my favorite things, especially since I have a long torso and don't want to worry about there not being enough coverage when I sit down, and would look nice with both skirts and pants. Also I can layer it with long sleeved tees in the winter for extra warmth. I think it'd be nice in a chocolate brown or cream. Now that I think about it, it might make a good dress if I lengthen it a bit. Hmm. Something to think about...

I really want a sweater vest, so Hilja it is. It seems simple and I could wear it both with button up shirts and long sleeved tees. I'd probably use the Knit Picks yarn I talked about in my last post, Wool of the Andes Worsted, in the Claret Heather or Winter Night.

So that's what I've got planned! Hopefully I'll get at least Cadence and one other done before January.


  1. Me too! The buttons really make it. I got it as a free download off of Ravelry a while back, but it's not free anymore. I guess a lot of people liked it enough. :)

  2. Oh, that's a great to do list! I really love the owl jumper, too. I want to try that one when I get a bit better. :)
