It’s here! Sweater weather, that is. It’s actually been cool enough, at night and in the air-conditioned workplace, for me to wear a sweater indoors. Heaven, I tell you. Heaven.
Of course, I’m getting bored with all of my clothes and have begun to dream of – are you sitting down? good – actually knitting a sweater for myself. I’ve been contemplating the Sienna Cardigan from the Fall IK for some time. You know, the cardigan that’s going to magically transform my life into something chic and European?
And this post actually provides great inspiration for a first-timer. All that seaming sounds a bit tedious, but oh well – as all grad students know, sometimes you have to go through hell to get what you want!
The Winter IK preview is also full of good stuff. Particularly the Nantucket Cardigan:
Cables! Seed stitch! 3/4 length sleeves! It’s everything I love, all wrapped up in one nice little cozy place.
One of them, if not both, will be mine. In nineteen days – 19 days! – I’ll be free of the lib school grind, either for good or until January. And that means only one thing: knitting. And lots of it.
