I have the yarn to knit Revolution, from the Fall 2005 issue of Knitty, but the more I look at the pattern, the less I actually want to knit it. It’s a cute pattern, but I think I’d quickly get frustrated with the split stitch. Someone’s project notes on Ravelry say that the stitch is hard on the wrists, which is not something that appeals to me at all. And where would I wear it, anyway? I think I’d like a more classic sort of sweater, if I’m going to knit a sweater for myself.
Perhaps the pullover version of Eris would look nice in the brown, or a Ribby Cardi so I could use both colors. Maybe the Monk’s Travel Satchel would be a good addition to my bag collection. I’ve been wanting to make felted bags that I could hang on the wall of my spinning nook to store fiber and tools. A hot water bottle cozy would be great (I’d just need a hot water bottle!) to help keep my toes warm in the wintertime. Pirate-Husband likes to keep the house cold at night, and I usually freeze. The Norwegian Star Earflap Hat (Ravelry link) has been in my queue for some time.
If I wanted to get really enthusiastic and take on a giant project, I could try knitting a Hemlock Ring Blanket. I certainly have enough yarn to make a really big blanket, but I’m not sure I want to!
