Yep. Another Fall Bucket List of Must Knits – 2017

Oh my goodness! It has been RAINING this week. I seriously did not see THAT coming and was perhaps overconfident that I would be basking in afternoon sun for the rest of the year. Apparently I forgot that I live on the southern edge of what might technically be defined as the Pacific Northwest. You know, that place where it RAINS all the time.

Humph.

All the same, I have taken it as a sign that I must Pull It Together and release my Fall 2017 bucket list of must knits. My Fall 2016 Bucket List was a big hit, so I hope you like this one, too!

Brioche Shawls and Scarfs

I still haven’t learned brioche, but this new Sprouting Brioche Shawl by Lavanya Patricella looks pretty amazing! I think it’s that contrasting orange edge that I just can’t stop staring at.

I happened upon the Brioche Untangled Scarf  that was just released by Black Crow Knits via Instagram. It honestly might be a more realistic starting place for my future as a brioche-capable knitter, plus it is the coolest scarf design I have seen in a Long Time, although I might have to skip the tassels. Not me.

Pullovers and Tees

I spent an inappropriate amount of time the other morning trying to decide which pullover to knit next, after my spectacular success with Lesley. I have it narrowed down to Friday Anew (sport weight) or Holiday (fingering weight). I’m tempted to go with the heavier weight, just so I hypothetically finish sooner. What do you think???

Designer Helga Isager caught my eye on Pinterest last month in a Very Big Way. I love the Ivory Tee she published earlier this year. Very refined. My LYS carried the Isager yarn brand for a hot minute earlier this year (but no longer), and I LOVED the color palette. The Isager yarn choices remind me of the Quince and Co. colorways, which are of course drool-worthy. I even used the Isager Alpaca-Merino blend for my upcoming white shawl release (stay tuned). I picked white (oh, the irony) in the end,  but there were some REALLY AWESOME color choices there. Definitely a high quality brand.

Cowls

I would be remiss if I didn’t include my recently released Bayland Cowl in my bucket list this year because it is a true ode to fall. I mean, look at those colors. ‘Nough said.

I admit I am a little sad that summer has slipped away. I had a not-so-secret hope of spending at least one more day knitting by the river, but apparently the uber-thick forest fire smoke followed by an ongoing drizzle have set me on a new path. So I am moving on. Fall, it is.

Photo credits revert back to the designers. I am sharing their images here for positive promotional purposes only. And…If you miss me between posts, keep your eye out for my quips of wisdom on Instagram and Facebook!
