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.
I never quite know what project is going to tickle my fancy from day to day or week to week. In fact, it sometimes happens that projects I can’t live without don’t actually stand the test of time while those I initially shun do. This week’s obsession is one of those.
It’s Friday, so it’s time to tell you what I’ve been dreaming about putting on my needles this week. As usual, there have been no shortage of lustful thoughts in the yarny portion of my brain and it’s actually been especially crazed since I finished TWO knitting projects and THREE sewing projects this week (I think it’s like a world record for me).
I’m constantly inspired and tempted by projects and patterns and materials in the fiber arts world and while sadly I can’t get to it all (at least not in a timely fashion) these inspirations are a crucial part of how I stay motivated. I thought it’d be fun to start a little serial on Fridays highlighting a project I’m currently lusting after. I may or may not every get to knit or spin these items. And I reserve the right to not explain myself or expand on why I have eyes for the projects I have my eye on. I just want to share my most recent lust-worthy finds with you. These posts will be short and sweet & just give us all a little something to dream about over the weekend.
