Ten on Tuesday

10 Fall/Winter Knits

It is good to get back to Ten on Tuesday!  I have really missed it, but couldn't' quite seem to get my act together over the summer to participate.  Thank you Carole for keeping this going.  You truly do a great job coming up with new ideas! I don't know about all of you but I am glad to have the kids back to school so I can get back on a dependable schedule!

This week's topic is 10 Things I'd Like to Knit this Fall/Winter.  Um.... only 10?  This is the hard part for me.  I made a quick list of the things that quickly came to mind and it is way more than 10.  I took out the projects for the Knit-a-Longs and Clubs that I regularly participate in and I was able to get the list down to 10.  Here they are:

1. Washington Square - I bought the yarn for this at Sock Summit with Birthday Money from my wonderful MIL.  I swatched this weekend and am ready to cast on!
2. Vodka Gimlet - This is a new release by Baby Cocktails and I looove it! I have a sweater's quantity of Cascade 220 in the stash that I bought for something else, but I think I'm going to reallocate it to this project.
3. Dark & Stormy - This has been in my queue for a while.  My LYS had a special on Madelinetosh this past July that I took advantage of.  I ordered some Vintage in Composition Book Grey.  It should arrive around Novemberish and will be a great late fall/early winter knit
4. Karren - The 2nd installment of the Sweater for all Seasons Club and I have the yarn for it already, Blue Moon Fiber Arts BFL Sport in Tanzanite.
5. Poet Society Tam - I'm making this with Malabrigo Rios.  I have cast on, but that's about it.
6. Koolhass - I know, I'm late to the party because I haven't made this yet.  Soon, very soon.  This will make a great Christmas gift for one of the many men in my life :-)
7. Marrowstone Shawl - Super pretty and an interesting construction.  I bought a gorgeous Merino/Tencel blend yarn from Knitted Wit at Sock Summit for this shawl.
8. Hazel Knits September/October Mystery Sock - I wasn't going to participate even though the designer is VeryBusyMonkey and I love her designs, but the 1st clue has been released and it is fabulous!  I can't resist.
9. A Noble Cowl - Simple pattern and doesn't require much yarn, and I really like the motif.
10. Winter Wonder - I just can't decide if I want to do the small version or the infinity version.  I may have to do both!

These are a few of the projects on my queue.  What are you planning to knit this fall?


  1. Great list! I have a few of the same in mine ;) Maybe if we could knit in our sleep huh?

  2. your NOBLE COWL plans are lovely

  3. Nice list! I say try the infinity version of Winter Wonder. I had a great time knitting the sample for it.
