I thought I'd continue in the potential knitwear theme since I'm still working on Scheherazade. (I'll update on that in a minute.) I picked this up the other day when I got the yarn for Icarus (thanks for all the encouragement by the way, I can't wait to see it either). Its Cascade 220 and the color on the right is Cranberry, but the color on the left is a heather and only has a number, not a name and naturally, I can't remember the number. Anyway, this is for what I'm calling a Saturday pullover at this point. It will be knit in the Cranberry color (I have lots more yarn the the two skeins shown here) with the purple color used as hem facings on the sleeves and hem of the sweater. I'll probably be the only one who ever sees it, but I thought it would be fun to use something different inside the sweater. I'm thinking of a slightly oversized pullover with a split neck or a V neck (possibly a deep V), and either modified drop shoulders or shallow set in sleeves. I just want something easy and comfortable to throw on over jeans and laze around in. The body will be either stockinette stitch or a simple pattern that I can memorize easily and not think about too much.
About Scheherazade, I'm still working on it. I've got most of the stole pattern done, I just have to add a few details, and take pictures of the finished stole. I'm working on the "bonus" pattern I'll include with the original pattern now. Once I finish knitting it (that will be today), I'll have to get pictures of it as well. Assuming I can get good pictures, I am hoping to finish up the pattern this week. There are a couple of technical details (computer stuff) that I have to get sorted out, but I think I know how to deal with them. If I do, the pattern will be for sale either late this week or early next week. If I'm kidding myself on the technical things, it might take longer, but this is what I'm hoping for at this point. I'll keep you updated as things progress. Please don't throw things at me if it takes longer than I hope (unless its sock yarn, then go right ahead and chunk it at me!).
