Five Things | September 24 2014

88 Stitches & I have teamed up to host a Sweater Knit-a-long this Fall! Tomorrow we are hosting a cast on party at the yarn shop to get things started. Of course, you don't have to cast on tomorrow night, just sometime between now and November 27th that will leave you enough time to complete your perfect Fall sweater. Not from around here? We've got you covered over on our Ravlery forum! More details can be found over at the Sweet Fiber Blog. Now for those five things.. you guessed it, they're sweaters!

 

Five sweaters I'm currently coveting for Fall in no particular order.

1. CLAYOQUOT by Alexa Ludeman of Tin Can Knits

I've always been a big fan of the colourwork yoke. Alexa uses some of my favourite shades of Sweet Fiber to make this North West inspired cardi.

2. OPPOSING FORCES by Annamaria Otvos

Part slouchy, part fitted, this new cardigan pattern has intrigued me with its unique construction. It reminds me of something I'd buy in a store, which is always a plus when it comes to choosing a sweater to knit for myself!

3. EYELET YOKE SWEATER by Courtney Spainhower

This simple sweater would be perfect with leggings and a pair of boots, which is why I've chosen it as my tentative #88SFKAL sweater! I really love the simple lace yoke detailing and the high-low hemline.

4. WOODSTOVE SEASON by Alicia Plummer

I love the subtle chevron motif on the back of this sweater. I could definitely see myself wearing this sweater camping or hiking in the woods.

5. EFFERVESCENCE CARDIGAN by Olga Buraya-Kefelian

I've been dreaming of this sweater for quite some time, ever since I saw Megan's on instagram. It's both elegant and unique and I love the yarn over / cable combo.
