Check this out! It's the ShibuiKnits Kago pattern from Knit/Purl in Portland, OR. I'm all aflutter with the romance of brisk fall weather and more than anything I want a really comfortable, cozy, but also really not frumpy new sweater.

I wish I could knit this in one short evening. The reality is that making it would set all my many works-in-progress even further behind. Sigh.

As I was daydreaming about a perfect fall sweater (wouldn't it be divine if it was cashmere or Alpaca?)I had a glimmer of hope while looking at Elizabeth Zimmermann's Knitter's Almanac. The December project is a Hurry-up Last Minute Sweater in very chunky weight wool. Maybe there will be time for something simple. Like a top-down with a deep v-neck out of thick Alpaca from Elann...

Any pattern inspirations from my knitting friends?

I finished my sweet little EZ potholder a couple of days ago and it has already been involved in the baking of 3 dozen chocolate chip cookies, and a stirfry dinner. See it posing here with my high-priced hand model.

My Zimmermania fervor has been temporarily slowed while I figure out a way to get my hands on the Baby Surprise Jacket pattern. The library has me on a list, but I may just buy myself Knitter's Workshop as an early birthday present.

And lastly, the other day I walked into the kitchen and discovered this:

The baby climbs inside the box of beer to begin his birthday celebration a few days early.
Ooooh, in the light,green, grass cashmerino. Delicious! But then green is my color....perhaps for you in the black, which would nicely set off the many beautiful accessories that you own!
What about Glampyre's Simple Knitted Bodice? If you don't like the lace panels, you can knit straight through them....I'm dying to get going on that sweater myself!!
Oooh, knit-purl is my favourite LYS! It's a great pattern, I've coveted it many times in person.
Beverly! What a nice idea. I've admired the Simple Knitted Bodice pattern many times...I'm mighty tempted. Thanks for the reminder!
Afraid I can't help you out with a sweater, as I've had 1 in the works since last year. They just seem to take me too long to make, I guess I just like instant gratification. The pot holder looks great. Love the picture of your little one.
We are thinking about your box climber today. Happy birthday and keep on finding stuff to get into!
