Back in the Saddle

Well, hi again! It's been awhile, hasn't it? Like, almost a year? Oh, well. Unfortunately life got in the way of blogging for awhile, and I got out of the habit. But I have been stitching away all the while, and have lots of new FO's to post about. While I'm finding pictures and things for those posts, I'll try to keep you entertained with some teasers about what is currently on the needles. It's kind of funny, I remember posting awhile back that I didn't like to have more than a few projects going at any given time. But I guess I've done a bit of a 180 on that. Right now I have the following in progress:
1. A pearl grey cardigan that will have a scoopneck shaped with short rows and a pleated detail at the neckline (knit in Road to China Light).
2. A dark red cardigan with a lattice detail at the waist, neck and cuffs (knit in madelinetosh sock yarn, colorway TART!)
3. A lace sweatercoat with an overall leaf design (knit in madelinetosh sport in Antler)
4. A bright red half-sleeve sweater with a deep v-neck and ribbing at both sides of the body (knit in Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted in Ysolda Red)
5. A square necked pullover with ribbing at the bust, lace detail at the neckline and half-length sleeves (knit in madelinetosh 80/10/10 sport in Tart)
6. A cardigan with an acorn motif around the yoke - perfect for fall! (knit in madelinetosh's brand new base - tosh merino dk in Celadon)
7. A basic stockinette sweatercoat in an easy-to-wear neutral color (knit in madelinetosh Pashmina in Dusk)
Soooo, I have my work cut out for me this fall! I guess it's easy to see I am on a madelinetosh kick right now. I just haven't found any other yarn I love working with as much. I've been buying it mainly from the Etsy store, where other lunatics like myself madly press F5 over and over again when an update is about to be loaded, in order to purchase the yarn before it sells out thirty seconds later. Heh, that sounds pretty crazy. Ah well.
I hope you're having a nice Saturday and enjoying the beautiful October weather. Fall is my favorite season. It's the perfect time of year to knit ;)
Look for some FO posts soon!
