Sweater Weather

Each year, sometime in August, the switch flips and all I can think about is knitting warm, cozy fall sweaters.  A few weekends ago we had a weird weekend; the weather got down into the 60’s and it was rainy and the world smelled like fall.  It has since gotten warmer again, but that was it for me. I started thinking about all the sweaters.

The first sweater I’m eager to knit is with a gorgeous speckled sportweight yarn. I actually used the same yarn and colorway previously when I knit some socks. It was when I knit those that I decided I had to have a sweater in the gorgeous colorway.  The yarn is Spun Right Round Sport Sock 80/20 Superwash Merino and Nylon in the colorway The Walkers.

It took me a bit to find a pattern that would show off the yarn to it’s finest, and I think I’ve settled on a plain pullover: Verve Pullover by Mary Annarella.

I also have a gorgeous sweater quantity of The Ross Farm Shetland Sport weight 3-ply from Heliotrope, one of the sheep in their flock. It is a gorgeous surprisingly-soft natural colored yarn that I bought this past year at Ply Away.

I have been browsing sweaters and I think I might end up knitting the Assam Cardigan by Tabetha Hedrick.

The final sweater I’m sort of dying to knit is one I don’t have yarn for so I need to knit at least one more out of stash before I’ll let myself buy yarn for it.  The sweater is the Veronika Cardigan by Shannon Stacey.  Even though it isn’t really what I’d consider “my style” I just love it and it looks so cozy for winter.

I’m tempted to copy Tracie’s gorgeous Veronika and order some Barrett Company Wool to try!

What sweaters or other items are you contemplating for fall?
