Ten on Tuesday

This week's Ten on Tuesday is kinda odd for me. You see I've never knit a sweater. I've lusted after handknit sweaters, but when it comes right down to it? Nope. Shawls. That's what I knit. But I'm going to play along, because I do have sweaters in my queue over on Ravelry, and since I'll be in the hospital next week for my shoulder replacement, I really don't want the blog dark TWO Tuesdays in a row! So without further ado, I give you: 5 Favorite Sweater Patterns and 5 Favorite Yarns to Use. The total of these is 10.

1. Coal Cardigan. I've never knit with Shelter before, but I've lusted after you know if I win the lottery? I'll use it.

2. Iced Cardigan. I just adore this pattern and would probably use something like Berrocco Vintage Chunky for it - this is more than likely the sort of sweater that would get worn a lot, so I'd want a yarn that had a washability to it.

3. Inggun. Okay, it's a sweater vest, but oh those cables...! I'd use something lovely that would make them pop, that's sure...I'm willing to use the Elspeth Lavold Calm Wool.

4. Jadis. I have the yarn already - I have the pattern already...why am I not knitting this??? Okay, the yarn is one I bought at a resale my knit group had: it's a Berger du Nord wool/camel blend in navy blue. Oh my...scrumptious.

5. Rose & Picots Cardigan which is knit in Rowan Scottish Tweed. I adore tweed. Why would I pick anything else?

Tweed is my favorite for sweaters, too!

I like the Ropes & Picots one! Sweaters are NOT difficult - I knit my first sweater vest for Dad when I was in the 11th grade in high school. Convinced the teacher to let me knit in class & take my sewing project home to do on Grandma's old petal Singer that didn't take off like a scared bunny rabbit the way the electrics in class did.

I love Iced as well. I can see that being a sweater that would be worn a lot too. It just has that comfortable look to it.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
