Future Projects: Vivien Sweater and Miette Cardigan

So, it is busy around these parts but, I am trying to get this post up because it has been awhile. I am finishing up my Marion cardigan so, of course I am thinking about my next project.

I will be joining Andi’s Christmas sweater project and the pattern I will be doing is Vivien. I will mainly work on this project at home because of the colorwork. I don’t think this is a good on-the- go project.

My project for my knitting bag (on-the-go) will be Miette. I put off knitting this for far too long so, I look forward to starting it soon.

Still working on Marion and Reading Game of Thrones

In all actuality, I could have been finished with my Marion cardigan. Then, I started reading Game of Thrones. Why oh why did I do that??? Once I picked up the book, I put down the needles. It is so engrossing. Well, yesterday I finished the book and started to read Book 2 of the series. But, before I got completely engrossed in book 2 I did pick the needles back up to make some headway with my cardigan. 

I am really enjoying the project so far. The cable does keep things interesting and stops it from being a boring knit. I am anxious to finish it. I am already dreaming about my next projects.

I plan on joining the challenge that Andi of Untangling Knots put out. I want to finish a Christmas sweater in 2014.  I actually ordered the yarn for this Vivien sweater last summer but, I put off knitting the fingering weight stranded colorwork sweater. However, if I commit to working on this over the year then, hopefully I will be more motivated to finish it. I chose the colors red, green, royal blue, and parchment. I definitely feel those qualify as seasonal colors so, I am calling this my Christmas sweater for 2014.

The other project I plan on starting is Miette in an orange color. I will be using yarn from my stash because I am really trying to do some stash busting.

Well, those are the few updates in my life for now. I’ll keep you posted on the projects…
