My knitting wishlist...

February Scarf - Soumak Scarf Wrap - Stockholm Scarf
I've been perusing knitting stuff on Pinterest lately and getting all inspired.  There's so much I want to create!  Mostly stuff I absolutely don't need, but that looks pretty and would be useful in helping me practise new skills (I'm still not sure about knitting on the round - 20+ years of knitting later!).  Maybe I'll finally learn cable knitting by making up the gorgeous February Scarf, or maybe I'll go with the more likely option of the Stockholm Scarf...  The Soumak Scarf is more of a dream make but my goodness it's lovely!
I <3 Me Sweater - Silken Straw Summer Sweater
I've been wanting to make this jumper since I found it on Ravelry before Christmas - it looks like an easy way to practise knitting on the round while making something that would be long enough to team with leggings (I justified that rather well, didn't I? ;))  The t-shirt is more of a light spring piece, which is a bit unusual for me since I mostly associate knitting with cold weather...  Most likely it'll be a next-year item though.
Seed Stitch Wrap - Beekeeper's Quilt
I'm still working on the Seed Stitch Wrap and the Beekeeper's Quilt (I think I'll be working on the quilt until the end of time...) - I'm loving both patterns so I'm in no rush to finish, they're good for picking up and putting down at my leisure with no need to refer to any complicated instructions, just my type of knitting!

What's everyone else got on their needles?



  1. Ha ha, I think I'll be at that Beekeeper's Quilt forever too! I go through phases where I'm bored of it, then phases where I do loads!

    Cable knitting is fun once you get the hang of it :)

    1. I've kinda been doing that, sometimes I just don't have the patience to sit and make them! My mum got me a book with 400 stitch types in it today (I suspect she wants a look!) so I've got no excuse not to learn cabling now! :)
