yep. i've got a case of the "gotta makes" ... i am certain that this isn't really a saying.... and no one has heard of it but me... but it's still a serious thing i'm dealing with ;) i've just got an uncontrollable desire to knit so many things!!! i'm also pretty sure that the only cure to the "gotta makes" is to simply create. don't get me wrong... i'm no doctor, but it just seems the most reasonable step to take. :)
and i'm sure that if i'm not careful... i just might turn into the "miss. havisham" of knitting. (yep.. i'm a big fan of great expectations. i've only read it about 6 or 7 times... and now that i think about it, maybe i'll pick it up again this summer)
even though we're well into summer now, we're not really into the summer weather here on the island (boo) and that is encouraging my case of the "gotta makes". my ravelry que has been growing like crazy!
with the KAL hosted by luvinthemommyhood, a few favourite sweaters are making their way to the top...
here's narragansett. i hadn't heard much of it before the kal.. but oh my! sandra of 3pumpkinslittle has done an incredible job! it's gorgeous! i honestly feel like it needs to be in my wardrobe.
and there's the abigail cardi. by cecily glowik macdonald. i love her patterns. she's super talented. and really, what an adorable cardi!
but it's not just sweaters. have you seen rae yet? it's a new summer scarf pattern by jane richmond.
seriously! uber cute! i've been lucky enough to actually see this particular one first hand! i feel the need to knit this one up quick and have it wrapped around my neck before summer is over.
there are lots lots more on the que.. but we'll just start with these for now... don't want to get ourselves too overwhelmed ;)
i have a fair amount of projects on the needles right now, so i do realize that i should be pacing myself a tad.... but one item came off the needles last night! woot woot! i'll share it with you a little later on this week. promise. but first, it has to be blocked.
i don't know about you, but this feels like a great start to my week! summer weather or no... these cardi's are on my mind.
how was your weekend? any crafting done? are you getting any decent summer weather? pop by and leave me a comment. go ahead, rub it in that you're getting all of the summer weather. i dare ya ;) we can still chat knitting.
