In My Queue

I can only speak for myself, but I have a LOT of knits in my Ravelry Queue.  Which in and of itself isn’t a bad thing.  However my queue tends to be more of a wishlist, not things that I am actually going to knit any time in the near future.  Once in my queue, things tend to languish.  Its funny, too, because sometimes I’ll go back and look through it and be surprised at how many great knits are in there that I haven’t knit yet.  Am I alone out there?

I was browsing through patterns on Ravelry this weekend and stumbled across quite a few that made it into my queue. For instance the Changeling Collar by Tiny Owl Knits. How stinkin’ cute is that?  Stephanie Dosen treads the fine line that lays between magical and pretty, without stumbling into the dreaded valley of twee.

I was also a bit smitten with her Sweet Robin Wristees. Her color work is pretty impressive. I love the little embroidered robin’s eggs.

But then again I’m a bit partial to robins, and aqua… so I may be biased.

I saw this great sweater by Stefanie Peulen. The Astra Sweater.  Its nice and simple, with just enough pretty detail. I like the ribbed yolk. I suspect the increases are cleverly hidden in those cute rows of squishy garter stitch.  It reminds me of the 70’s. In a good way and looks like a very nice comfortable knit.

And since I seem to be on a Stephanie (Stefanie) kick, lets change things up and look at a very pretty Arrow Caplet by Courtney Spainhower.

I love the textured pattern and the little arrow color work. Hmmm, maybe its time to do a little slacking off and knit a few things from my queue!
