Summer Of Sweaters

It's about that time. The planets have finally aligned. My knitting mojo is in full effect, my current WIP is almost off the needles, and I've got projects and yarn lined up and ready to go.

I'm still undecided what to do about my Nectar sweater/bamboo dye lot issue, so I'm going to let it go for the moment and move on. I didn't, however, move on from the Nectar book.

So let see...what's next?
This past weekend, I frogged the Textured Tunic. I'll be honest, I was happy to see it go. Especially because I already have a project in mind for the green Summer Tweed...Glint!

My first thought was to make this shorter pink sweater with the longer sleeves of a similar sweater from the Nectar book. But I'm not 100% on that idea now. I'm kinda digging the shorter sleeve version. Maybe a 3/4 sleeve version? I'm excited to get working on this one.

I've also set my sights on Joy. I received 6 balls of Rowan Denim as a membership gift this year and was desperate to get my hands of 6 more. Of course, by the time I procured 6 more, I forgot what project I wanted to make! I finally figured it out. JOY!
I'm excited to try out the denim yarn...check out the 40+ cardis on Ravelry...they're all fantastic! I'm too excited to start this one.

And lastly in the queue...

I really love the look of this sweater. There's something so feminine and delicate about this sweater. I'm not 100% sure it would be right on me. Something is telling me no, but I'm sure I'll be stubborn and give it a go anyway. Unlike the other two patterns, I don't have the yarn called for in the stash. So I started considering frogging Notorious. I have no desire to wear that top. I've tried more than once, but there's just something about it that isn't working. I still love the look of the original...but mine falls short of that potential. Besides that, I love the Safari yarn, so I'd like to use it for something I would actually wear on the regular.

This one is still up in the air...I guess I have more than enough time to decide.
