Currently On My Needles ....

Right now I'm on a knitting frenzy and trying not to cast on everything in sight, especially all the cardigans I've been seeing on Ravelry.  Self-control has never been on of my virtues, but I'm really trying, honestly I am, not to go cast on happy.

Currently on my needles:

I'm currently working on a top down cardigan that incorporates Asheville, a pattern by The Noble Thread.  I love the pattern (it's well written and super easy to follow) and plan to knit it "as is" in the future but for now I'm trying to use up several sweaters worth of yarn from my stash and that means slight modifications to the existing pattern.


My photo really doesn't show the color that well as it was taken this evening, but here's the color of the yarn.

For this project I'm using Lionbrand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick in the color Abalone, a US size 11 needle and a US size 13 needle.  If you are interested in what I'm doing for modifications, you are welcome to visit my Ravelry project page.

Still on my needles:


  • My Cup of Tea Socks
  • Double Trouble Socks (my own creation) 
  • Close to You in my handspun
  • Leaflet - this will be worked on before starting any new cardigan projects


Soon to be on my needles:

This past weekend I planned out my next cardigan project (after I finish the current two I have on my needles), which will be the Boho Style Mosaic Cardigan by Irene Lin and I will be using Classic Elite Legend in Mushroom, Deep Plum, Khaki Green and Midnight Blue.



I have purchased the pattern and I'm really impressed with the quality of the design and the in-depth detail.  This pattern is very well written and includes a wonderful chart and schematics.  I'm rather excited about this project and really can't wait to cast it on !
There's just so many wonderful projects but just not enough time to cast them all on!!!  What are you currently working on ?

Until next time - be as creative as you can!
