Wow, the fall issues of both VK and IK are real winners. It's quite rare that both magazines do it for me at the same time!
I'm swooning over Eunny's Tangled Yoke cardigan (and I see other knitters have fallen hard for it, too, 300+ Ravelrers have it queued!!) but I'm having a tough time picking a yarn. The Felted Tweed is so scratchy and gross (to me!), and I all the other thin yarns I know and love are either multicolored (hello, koigu!) or what I have in my stash is too dark for this design (Trilly, I have a sweater's worth in dark chocolate which will hide the gorgeous details) and the yarn is discontinued. Any suggestions on a good yarn, 6 sts/inch, preferably with some soft of texture that won't hide the details?
The other IK sweater that got me is the Cobblestone Pullover, which (full disclosure) I've already started. I'm using stashed Charmed so I don't feel too guilty about starting yet another project, plus all that stockinette in the round is perfect knitting to do while surfing blogs . . . not that I don't have other "perfect knitting" already. But who's counting the projects? Not me. (Ravelry is)
Strangely what called to me the most from the Vogue was the little cabled capelet my Michael Kors. And trust me, I am not the cape type. We'll see if that one ever makes it onto the needles. I also liked the new Twinkle cardigan in it (better than the one in IK, for my taste), but I've only just browsed this one so there may be other gems in there I haven't seen yet.
Progress on other projects continues at a snail's pace. I put everything down this weekend to crank on the blanket I'm knitting as a wedding gift . . . the wedding is Labor Day weekend, which I realized last week is in exactly 1 month! So I set my mind to it and knit a third of the blanket over the course of two days. If I had to I could probably knit it in a week . . . let's hope it doesn't come down to that!
