Spring has SHRUG

This diamond scarf is taking longer than I expected. That being said I am only knitting it here and there and I no longer even need to keep my eyes open. What a treat this is on my commute! *edit Crap cakes. In my rush to head back downtown on Sunday evening, I left my knitting bag at my Dad's house. No work on my scarf or skating sweater until I go back to visit. It's probably better off because the weather in Toronto is freakish.. I don't even think we'll have a proper spring anymore. I think it's going to go from blah to summer in one month. By the end of April I will have my foot in my mouth or in flip flops. Which would be perfect, because I have a massive amount of spring things to knit. Since I last posted on Lab, I've fallen in love a thousand times over with new patterns.
From Rebecca Design Team: #39 Bolero w/lace patternCheck out Kimberlolly's is divine. and here are the previews from Rebecca #39 love the cowl, not sure about the waist structure..need to see a closer image. I like the halter, but I don't know if I'd wear it. These look so soft.. want to cuddle. I'd like to see the deep v standing up..looks like it's got potential. Nothing thrills me here, I can't wear sweater dresses. Love the lace cover-up and long cabled tee. I wonder if the jacket is swing shaped aka gigantic. Love the details on the mustard bolero If I were ever to knit a dress it would probably be this second one in. Nice beige cardi, looks super thin and easily layered.
delicious finds from ravelry: Lingy's Alpine Shrug I can't get over how much I like this. But I know, just *KNOW it won't look like that on me. I want those skinny mirrors in my house. I hardly ever see a head to to image of myself once I leave.. yep I'd like that warped sense of self image plsnthnx. Part of me wants to frog the skating sweater and make this. Yarndiet08 is proving harder than expected. I wonder how many ply of a thicker worsted it would take to get gauge? I wouldn't compare this to a twinkle though. No. This has a completely different feel. Mods? I saw an amazing Club Monago Poncho/Cardi/Shrug thing that blew my lid off yesterday so I'd make the front torso piece larger and lengthen it somehow to add more of a caplet type feel. Dream in Color Shrug by Gidgetfibbit Love this so much. Cascade is a great sub. Chrissylah's Drops 95-21 Cardigan knitted in Lace Pattern Want this. I'd button it all the way down or not at all. I don't like things that create an arrowhead shape to my body. That's it for me today. I think Jules is going to post on her Demeter later too. I'm excited for that one!@ Check out these two heavy rotators in the meantime: Pump me up: A-TRAK: Time To Get Yummy (TUUUUUUNE!) chill me down: Groove Armada : At the River This is a song for Sambo- my mate from down undAH who is back in OZ I miss you! xoxo)
