If Only...

The problem is - I just can't knit fast enough. I suppose I'm reasonably quick - but I keep finding new patterns I want to knit quicker than I can knit up the one's I'm currently working on.

Yesterday I did some housework on my queue of patterns at Ravelry. I cleared out some that, with the best will in the world, I'm never going to find the time to make. That still leaves 84 patterns in the queue!!

And now, Kim Hargreaves has a new book out for Spring and Summer called Misty. I shall be buying this on my next trip into Liverpool, but in the meantime, here's some of the patterns I've got my eye on.
The first one is Shimmer. It's knitted in Rowan Calmer - a yarn I haven't experienced yet.

This is Carrie, knitted in 4 ply cotton. The peplum detail looks interesting.

This one is Arielle. Very feminine. Knitted in cotton 4 ply - I love the lace panels.

And finally, this is Anais. Knitted in DK cotton. Again very feminine, and probably quite quick to make.

If only the days were longer, I had Mary Poppins skills with household chores and my hands could knit faster - I shall have to work on my multi-tasking skills and speed knitting!
