On the Needles for Fall 2014

knitting plans


These are the knitting projects I’m hoping to finish up within the next couple of months. Clockwise from the top:

1. Learn to Knit Hat & Hand Warmers by Purl Bee, with Knit Picks Wool of the Andes in Thirst Heather.

2. The Boyfriend Hat by Purl Bee, one for Matt with Knit Picks City Tweed DK in Desert Sage, and another for myself with the yarn held double (as the project calls for)–with Knit Picks Comfy Fingering in Ivory & Sea Foam.

3. Honey Shrug by Quince & Co, with Knit Picks Shine (LOVE this yarn) in French Blue.

I only just realized typing this up that I’m only using Knit Picks yarn for all of these patterns. I bought the Shine just to test it out, and happened to have it with me when I visited El Paso during vacation–it’s amazing. It’s got excellent drape, and is soft without being too fluffy. The yarn does have a tendency to split just a tiny bit, but that’s in part because my needles are a bit sharp.

I’m also hoping to knit some hand-warmers for a friend if I’ve got any leftover of the Thirst, but I doubt that I will. (In which case–I’ll jut buy more yarn!) Additionally, I’m keeping an eye out for a nice cashmere to knit a shawl for Matt’s mom–hopefully I’ll be able to finish that before I visit for Thanksgiving.
