More Knitting Ideas and Thinking Ahead

DH is on travel. I've already watched my chick flicks for the evening and did some knitting. It's late and I'm still on the Internet. I came across some lovely patterns that I wanted to share.

I keep coming across this cute cardi. The more I see it, the more I really like it. I'm intrigued with the stitch elements. This appears to be a quick knit project. This could be worn casual or dressy. If I choose the right color, this would make a lovely transitional garment from warm to cool weather.

I'm also intrigued with fair isle knitting. I really like the style of this dolman top. The color possibilities are endless. Even if I skip the fair isle treatment, I could do a different stitch pattern for the sleeves or even knit this as a two-tone top. Could do this in contrast or monochromatic colors.

This beautiful top caught my eye. Yes, the color is beautiful as well as the style. I like the wide scoop neck. I imagine this would be a wonderful knitting experience. Nothing boring about this top. I might have to try this one.

Interweave Knits Little Blue Sweater by Simona Merchant-Dest

I'm thinking about tackling this cute Sweater Babe's Lush & Lacy cardi. I like the diamond lace pattern and I think the slightly gathered peplum in the back is darling. So is the sleeve. Who couldn't resist the little pockets in the front?

For those of you who are interested in my previous cabled vest project, you can find the pattern here for the cable & lace vest by Rosemary Drysdale. I happened to be visiting Elann's site and came across the pattern.

Now, it's really late and I better go and get some Zzzzzzzz.

Happy Knitting!

I love your ideas for the dolman top, I would never have thought of that - i love those style tops but fair isle totally puts me off!
And I love that little blue sweater too, i have some yarn at home in just that colour...
Again, my poor queue!

These are great tops! I especially like the little blue top. I may have to make one, I love the cables!
