    I'm prone to being a scatterbrain, so I try to make a short list of things to accomplish each month (lest I have 27 different non matching socks).

Pattern Buying Fool

Posted by Amber on December 15, 2006

With all my newfound free time, I’ve bought a bunch of patterns for things to start during the holidays.

Mountain Stream Scarf – I saw one in a blog that looks tons better than it does on the website, so I decided to give lace a shot. I’m going to be using some Holly Spring Homespun/Scarlet Fleece I picked up in Richmond a while back. It’s a lot smoother than the Kidsilk haze, but I think it will work well.

Lucy in the Sky Cardigan – I can’t wait to make this! I was going to start tonight at a knitting group at bead obsessions, but decided to work on SuperSecret instead (what with the 7 days left to finish it). I’m going to use Shelridge Farms W4 in pink lemonade.

Anemoi Mittens – I haven’t bought the pattern yet, but I do have the yarn. Karabella Aurora 4, which may be a smidge big, but I’m going to swatch and see. The sad thing is that my hands are the smallest size for the pattern – so I can’t adjust in my usual way, which is to knit the next size down. Of course, at worse I just design my own mittens with the Aurora, and try to find something from the stash for the Anemoi mittens (I have lang jawoll and jaggerspun matchmaker(?) that I got in a trade. I’d have to double check the matchmaker, but I’m sure the jawoll would work).
