uh huh ....
so, i work in a yarn shop. often, i am overwhelmed with the potential of most yarns in the store. and now, the fall stuff is rolling in .... and then there's ravelry (the perfect place to browse when you can't sleep in the wee hours).
as of late, i have "fallen" for a few patterns. it's just my luck that i have some yarns in stash that will work for these patterns too!
the first is blue sky alpaca's eyelet cardigan. i have seen many cute CUTE versions of it on (pattern intransit from kpixie (ps. besides their fabulous selection and customer service, they also have a discounted shipping rate if you are just ordering patterns).
the second is one from the latest berroco norah gaughan (vol. 3) book ... assemblage. isn't it lovely?!
the one everyone is inlove with, though, is norah's eastlake (i love it too, and intend to make it at some point).
but, i think my current favorite is norah's loppem (... and trust me, many a joke has been made regarding that name, inspite of it being named after a city in belgium). it's kinda like a vest. and i kinda have a nice yarn that meets the gauge and yardage requirements. but, that also means swatching and dedicating brain cells to another project (do brain cells get hung up in socken projects, and lace, and such?)
