The weather is still hot, but I so want to start planning the fall knitting. I've got several things I want to start, the Kepler Sweater, Eris, a cabled capelet from the latest Rowan, the Asymmetrical sweater from Loop d Loop, A Banff in some yarn I got from Handpaintedyarns.com, my kidlets Christmas Stockings... I have a slight problem though. I've still got two projects on the needles and a third (final) summer knit that I want to do. What's still on the needles? I've got Hopeful, which is well on its way. I have the back to finish, then the sleeves and collar, but most of the body is done. I just cast on for a sweater I'm making for my friend which needs to be done my mid-October, and the project I want to start/complete is the Glampyre tubular camisole. Ack!!! Plus, all you sewing knitbloggers have been tempting me with your cute dresses, and fab purses. I've been struggling with the urge to go get a sewing machine for about a month now. Stop it, people! (Becky, Silvia, Little Purl!) Maybe you've noticed that three of my Fall knits feature cables. Christie and I have been discussing cables of late and were thinking of starting a Fall Cables KAL, hosted by ourselves. Anyone game? If you want to get on the Fall Cable action leave a comment or email me at tabbytuxedo AT yahoo DOT com. You can always visit Christie's fab blog as well and contact her. We'll see how much interest ther is and maybe get a KAL started!
