Fall Bucket List of Must Knits

One knitters dream list of fall knitting projects. I know. I KNOW? Fall? Yes, Fall.

It’s not official yet. There’s still nearly a month for that. Even though it’s still hotter than Hades, Fall IS in the air. There’s color creeping into the leaves and I can already feel that certain crispness to the morning air. Fall is right around the corner, like it or not. This means it is invariably time to plan those Fall projects. Here’s what’s on my list:

This Poncho

I have been obsessed with this poncho since I first saw Andrea’s post. I have been searching for the perfect poncho all year (it’s on my bucket list) and this is it! I’m going to take a break from designing projects (soon?) and cast on. I haven’t decided if I am going to splurge on Brooklyn Tweed as called for in the pattern, or substitute with another yarn.

Reflections Shawl

I love the new kit for the Reflections Shawl over at Craftsy*. The kit is currently on sale, and I also had a hankering to do more colorwork projects on my bucket list. This seems like a good fit.


True to my pledge to knit ALL THE DESIGNS from Home & Away* (with which I am absolutely obsessed), I have decided to knit Lesley next. (My Rosemont was such a success, and I have been wearing it TONS.) By the way, the price on Home & Away has dropped to an ALL TIME low of $16.00. That’s a steal. I LOVE LOVE LOVE my copy. Grab one on sale, for sure! I still have to order yarn for Lesley…I hope to get to this during Fall. Otherwise, it will have to shift over to my Winter Bucket List. Oh dear.

New Designs

I plan to work up a little something with yarn above. It feels very fall-ish, doesn’t it? It’s Plymouth Yarn’s Revel and was gifted to me last Christmas by a bestie. The label claims fingering, but it feels like a LIGHT fingering. Uh oh. We all know how I feel about lace. I have a shawl design in mind.

I also just released the pattern for my new poncho and hat and might be knitting more of those as well.

All the Usuals

Regardless of the season, I always have socks on my needles for those random moments of down time.

    I have trepidation’s about knitting a poncho, however Ponchetta has caught my eye. I think it could be really lovely in a tweedy yarn.

    i wish i could be organized enough to write up a seasonal bucket list….me? oh! I love this…I’ll cast it on; now I love THIS….on the needles!! Lots get cast on…lots stay cast on….a few things get finished…..usually out of season. my life.

      Organization is overrated. I will probably end up throwing the whole thing (or part of it out the window) due to random inspiration that will strike at inconvenient and nonsensical times.

    Love love love your list! Looking forward to seeing all of it taking shape!

    you should have seen my living room yesterday while it felt like fall outside. I have yarn everywhere and I was planning and plotting away on what to knit, it was glorious!!

      You know, I would LOVE to spend some time in your living room. Hopefully they will invent an atom transporter beamer thing soon so I can just zip here and there without the airline ticket.

    Visiting from Ginny’s blog! Oh, do totally share your deep and abiding love for Home & Away. In fact, I just started Rosemont this week. (Your post on that was awesome, by the way! Who HASN’T stroked over blocking?!) 🙂

      Thank you for stopping by! I will look forward to exploring your space as well. Good luck with Rosemont. What color are you using?

    A knitting bucket list – now why have I never heard or thought of that before? Love the reflections shawl 🙂

    • Reply Andrea @ This Knitted Life August 24, 2016 at 10:04 am

      …Just a little neurosis I have to make lots of lists. Reflections looks like a cool one for sure!

    I really enjoyed knitting my Leslie. Easy and simple design and so quick to knit!

  • Reply Jane August 24, 2016 at 5:04 pm

    That poncho is beautiful. I might have to add it to my list.

  • Reply Stefanie August 25, 2016 at 6:39 pm

    That poncho is a cute and simple design. I like that Lesley too.

    a bucket list for knitting, that’s a good idea. right now i am working on my knitting christmas list and that will take me until january. i like the poncho, i am not a coat wearer, so that would be great alternative for me!!!
