Knitting for Fall


It's pretty much mid-August now, so it finally occurred to me that if I want some new knitted items to wear this fall, I should probably get on that. There are three things I really want to get done...

One already started is A Cardigan for Arwen. You can see my Ravelry page for it here. (If you're not on Ravelry, you can see the pattern picture here.) I have the back done, and I'm almost to the sleeve of the first side. My goal is to have it done by this year's Wool Arts Tour. (Of course, if I finish, that means it will be unseasonably warm that day and I won't be able to wear it, but whatever. Goals are good.)

As I mentioned last week, I've also become obsessed with the Big Ivy Scarf. (Non-Ravelry link here. I bought Cotton Fleece for it, and I'm thinking it will be very cuddly and perfect for wearing over a shirt or light jacket when it's getting cool out but not yet coat-weather. Which, of course, means I need to finish it. Which means I need to start it. Soon.

And the third item I'd like to wear this fall is JoJoLand's Autumn shawl. (Non-Ravelry here.) I bought this yarn and pattern as my reward for finishing my move. I got color M24 - good for Autumn, both the season and the pattern. So, again, must get going on this. It will actually be my first entrelac, I think. Any tips before I get started?

What are you making for fall?

The Arwen sweater is so lovely - I'm looking forward to watching yours grow. Someday I'll attempt it...

I love the Big Ivy Scarf too though I just un-queued it b/c my queue is too long and i started buying more and more yarn and well, it was getting way out of control. I just bought yarn for a February Lady Sweater. If I make any progress on my ravelympics projects then i'll cast on for it. Otherwise I just hope to block my Veste before I need to wear it. Though with this weather I should have done it today! :) Yay!! I love autumn.

I'm making my daughter a sweater (found a good solution to my problem with that, I think, by the way -- thanks for your help!), and I'll probably make myself one too, out of some red Patons Classic Wool I've had for nearly a year, once I decide for sure if I want to do Mariah or something simpler (ie something I would actually have done in time to wear before the weather heats up again in the spring).
