I couldn't help but be (always) inspired by Meredith of One Sheepish Girl. She took on the fawn-cho with ease earlier this year. After seeing her whip out that project like it was nothing, I kept wanting to try a bigger project. Even more fun that it would be wearable in the end! I finally made the purchase and now I can't wait to get all my supplies and teach myself some new skills. I also have had thoughts of switching up the colors. While I love the green, I know it would get more use if it were a different color. Dark brown, navy blue, forest green, pale oatmeal beige? Decisions, decisions.
Meredith's fawn-cho inspiration took me to the Tiny Owl Knit shop where I fell in love with just about any pattern offered. I had seen the beekeeper quilt around for a while and it was always something I wanted to start. What I like is that the quilt is made up from mini knit projects, so it seems less daunting than if I were to take on a huge blanket. Plus it seems like a nice way to use up the last bits of yarn that are always left laying around.
The hoodlet was a third impulse buy. I love the idea of big, cozy knits and had been day dreaming of colder weather when I stumbled upon the scarf hood duo. I can't wait til the weather cools down and the layering of clothing and warm knits can begin. I know these are big projects, at least for me, but I hope to complete at least one before next summer rolls around! I won't be able to start for a couple weeks, but I am bracing myself and preparing myself for the discipline needed to finish projects like these. Fingers crossed!
