this page details projects i plan on knitting sometime in the future. for the most part, it is also a reflection of (a portion of) the contents of my stash.
do we sense a cardigan fetish? i'm determined to knit sweaters i will wear often, and cardis seem to fit the bill.
joy (vintage knits, kim hargreaves)
-jaeger matchmaker merino 4ply (black) in the stash
--i considered a lacy cardi pattern for this yarn, but (1) have found none, (2) i'll likely wear a black shirt under this cardi fairly often, rendering the purty lace useless
--will consider a cably cardi pattern for fingering weight yarn (yes i'm crazy)...if you know of a good one, please let me know!
-will probably convert beading to purl bumps
debbie bliss dk merino in rose
-nantucket jacket? will have to adjust for gauge (hopefully can just knit a larger size)
noro silk garden lite
-sunrise circle jacket? more gauge adjustments...
-perhaps a rectangular wrap jacket, like cosmicpluto's...
drops 103-1 jacket
-wanting this in black, soft worsted weight...jo sharp silkroad aran tweed in licorice has been ordered!

-camisa (knitscene, fall 06): worsted weight, 700 yd
-anais or lacy waves top
-green tea raglan (interweave knits, spring 07)
-cherry from amelia raitte
-crinkle from rowan 39, made longer
-rambling rose from rowan 39, w/different textured panel
--something with either princess seam shaping or separately knit waist band (take advantage of bamboo's slinkiness, emphasize curves)
--need to consider yardage...should i make a long sleeve top to use it all up? or make two sleeveless/short sleeve tops? or a top and a shawlette? decisions, decisions...

-print of the wave? kimono? sampler stole from a gathering of lace?
interlacements blue/green/purple multi shawl

swatch portrait project
-i plan on using this tutorial to make fabric swatch portraits to decorate the dining space/hallway and master bath. also, knitted swatch portraits! i'm using leftover sock yarn (and 1 purchased neutral) to make colorwork swatches to put on the wall. venezia (winter interweave knits 06) will be one; not sure of the other(s).
