Knitting Fever

Although it's still well over 100 degrees every stinkin day, I can tell there is a change in the air that symbolizes the approaching fall. Just the thought of turning leaves and cooler weather has me itching to get my fingers wrapped around some yarn on a new project. I've been perusing patterns and struggling with which one I want to try - I'm going all out and making myself a nice cardigan this year, so I want to make it one that's worth the fiber and time investment!

I'm loving the new Kim Hargreaves pattern book, Precious - it's wonderful! I adore Lauren, a blouson-type cardigan...

I'm also contemplating making the Debbie Bliss cabled jacket from the cashmere collection.

Now... off to decision-making!

You are a braver woman than I am.

I love both of those! Don't choose between them; do them both. Fall/winter is for knitting right? I can't remember the last time I picked up the needles...

I've posted pics on the blog and facebook with the kitchen cabinets. They're still not 100% finished but nearly there! Construction of the new half-wall begins tonight. Woooooot!
