A Wish List
First is Annie Modesitt's Silk Corset Tank. I love the shaping and detail on this top. Its just gorgeous. I've seen several of them finished up and they look beautiful on a person too. I would probably do mine in a single color instead of two colors, but by the time I get around to it, I might change my mind. I probably won't be ready to knit this until Spring, but I won't really be able to wear it between now and then anyway.
Then there is Jenna Adorno's Hopeful. This is the cutest top! I love the shaping and the little neck tie thing. And of course, since she's donating 120% of the purchase price to Breast Cancer research, your actually doing something good just by purchasing the pattern. I think I would want to make mine in Pink Ribbon Pink, but I could also see it in the gorgeous, rich colors that are everywhere this Fall. Unfortunately, no time to make it this fall. Oh well, it definitely goes on the Spring to do list.
The last pattern that I can't get out of my head is Satchel from the latest Knitty. I can see the big one, in charcoal grey and then embroider the flap with bright colors after felting it. I would also probably line it just because felted wool is kind of grippy and lining would make it easier to get stuff in and out of the bag. And afterall, it would be a girl satchel for me. The other change I would make would be to make the strap wider and put a pocket on it for my Mini iPod. Then I figure I'd be ready to go anywhere!
