It's perverse

I'm enjoying my slow week, but I'm still knitting!
And after a sunny and mild beginning, today is much more like Winter. Perfect weather to be curled up on the couch with the fire burning, and working with needles and yarn.
Scarf season waits for no woman.
Of course, now that I need to really concentrate on keeping stocks up, I'm spying images of all things knitted that are sorely tempting me!
Top of my wish list is this.

Although, I'm seeing a little fiddle with the colours and stitches....I think I fancy a chequerboard stitch for the yoke, oh, and something bright and happy like navy and orange, or two tones of's an agony just thinking about it!

Then there's this
It reminds me of an Aran jumper. The non-colour and chunky cable is perfection itself, only made better by that button.

On a roll now.
How about this?

Not my usual colour palette, but I love this combination.
It reminds me of an old beach house, colours that might have been bright once, faded and bleached over time!

Or, indulging my love of cardigans, this.

But, being a former Melbourne girl, I've done a lifetime of black!
This would have to be in a bright red, or a soft french blue, or maybe even a mustard yellow...
Right, good to get that out of my system, I'll get back to my scarves then!

Both those scarves are beauties Jo. Loving the colors in the second, but feel like I could hide from the depths of winter in the first one.

I know exactly what you mean, I've been wanting to swap my crochet basket with a cardigan I started knitting years ago all week. How marvellous is that checkerboard top?? Love it!!!
