This Week in My Dreams

After the inspiration high of WI Sheep & Wool, I am a little conflicted by reality vs. fantasty. I assume most knitters can relate to the fact that there’s a healthy rift between the honest actuality of what I am capable of knitting vs. what I think I am capable of knitting. In any case, this week I’ve had one singular dream: Carrie Bostick Hoge‘s Lucinda sweater from her book, Madder Anthology 2: Simple Pleasures.

While I would love to knit it in The Fibre Company‘s Acadia in the Verbena colorway

I’m kind of leaning toward using Green Mountain Spinnery‘s Cotton Comfort in the Storm colorway.

80% Targhee + 20% Organic Cotton, I got to see this yarn at the WI Sheep & Wool Festival. Either way, I think this sweater would be a treasure in everyday wear-ability.

What are you dreaming of knitting this week?

  1. I’m so happy to know that I’m not the only one who dreams of knitting everything that they see! Fortunately it seems that I have enough in my stash to knit many if these things. LOL
