View Full Version : Need a project idea

05-04-2009, 08:34 PM
I haven't knit for the last couple of months as we've been working on getting our house on the market. Now that we're coming down the home stretch to getting it listed I am really missing my knitting. I haven't been to knit night in weeks and I don't have any inspiration for a new project. I've got plenty of yummy yarn in stash - alpaca, alpaca, and lots of hand spun wool for our local festival.
Anyone have any great projects they would like to share (with a pattern) to get me back on track ?

Let's see - I like most anything that doesn't require an exact guage and seaming .... really like socks and if I ever get to my LYS again I will learn two at a time toe up, I also like things for the shoulders - esp shrugs

Here are a few I like.
Dressy - aoife cable shrug (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter07/PATTaoife.html)
lacy - shimmer lacy shrug (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/shimmer-lace-shrug) in the book Inspired to Knit (http://www.amazon.com/Inspired-Knit-Creating-Exquisite-Handknits/dp/1596680415%3FSubscriptionId%3D1YZR91QYB6WCG3PM78G2 %26tag%3Dravelry-20%26linkCode%3Dxm2%26camp%3D2025%26creative%3D165 953%26creativeASIN%3D1596680415)
Casual - drops jacket shrug (http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=91&d_id=8&lang=us)

As soon as I get a few more projects finished, I want to cast on these entrelac socks (http://www.ravelry.com/projects/masterknitter/a-step-above).
