Taking Stock for 2016

Here it is, March already, and I am just now looking at my yarns and knitting list for the year. That is what happens when I have a few projects on the go and deadlines to meet. Brooklyn Tweed must be getting very busy because I recently knit back-to-back samples for them and I am about to start another one any day now. I also recently finished the Honeycomb Aran I was working on, which took me quite a while to knit. Longer than I had hoped it would take. So now with a somewhat open calendar in front of me I need to chose my project goals for the year.

One thing I really need is a navy cardigan. I spent a lot of time going through patterns on Ravelry trying to decide the best one for me. Although I love cables, I really just need a plain cardigan to throw on when it is cool. For that reason, I chose the Larch Cardigan. I also decided to try out a new yarn - Cloudborn Fibers Highland Sport, which is available on

I also really love the Antler Cardigan but that one is going to have to wait.

I would also love to knit another shawl. I have my eye on Sakura from Brooklyn Tweed and I have three lovely skeins of Loft in the color Foothills set aside for it.

My husband and three boys have all been asking me to knit sweaters for them so at some point I am going to have to choose patterns for them but honestly, I have been toying with the idea of designing and I've got some ideas running through my head. We'll see how productive I can be in 2016.
