Divine Knitspiration

Just to clarify, I'm looking for inspiration, not perspiration.

I only have one WIP going right now, a knitted bunny for my friend's daughter. That should (hopefully) be ready to gift by Easter Sunday, so I need a couple three projects to get the mojo going again. And to keep me from doing something completely unwise, more than a little scary and ultimately doomed to try and fix those two errant cables on my CPH (which yes, I am wearing again today).

I've been strolling through my Rav queue, looking at my stash, and...nothin'. Nada. Zip. Nothing is calling out to me, saying, "Knit me, knit me now, weez!" (When my yarn does that, I promise, I don't actually answer back. Most of the time.) In fact, I haven't even wanted to *buy* any yarn lately, which is why said stash is reaching critically low levels. Now you know it's serious!

So, please, inspire me! Take a peek at my stash, and tell me what pattern you would knit next if you were me!

it looks like you have a lot of sock yarn. socks are generally a good palate cleansing project. or you could do a lacy summer top. i'm currently into those. or you could sew instead of knit. i like to switch crafts sometimes until inspiration strikes.

I can't say I have any suggestions as I'm a bit too beginnerish for that, but I'm curious to see what others come up with because your taste in knits is great!

I think you need to knit a Cookie A lace pattern. How about Clandestine out of the dark stuff?

I think your Silky Merino is absolutely gorgeous! Maybe you could knit up a Textured Shawl? You have so many beautiful yarns to choose from though!

I'm in the same boat, but trying not to get inspired til after the move.

Good luck!

I like the silky merino - what about a shawl like the Shetland or Forest Canopy? It would go quickly so you wouldn't get bored.

Or another CPH!

I'm seeing a Hey, Teach! ( in that pretty green Tatamy tweed you gots there. But you can never really go wrong with socks. Some of those yummy yarns would be just good as plain 'ol stst socks....

Maybe you just need a new hobby until the desire to knit come back. Fancy trying some spinning? ;-)

A spring shawl with the three skeins of Yarntini yarn. Those colors just SCREAM knit me into something light and fluffy to hold around you on cool spring and summer evenings.

First - you don't have enough yarn. Therefore, you need to buy this yarn to make this sweater which would look very cute.

Have you seen Emily Johnson's Wednesday Sock? She knit it in BMFA Lenore, although she used mediumweight (it's a 60-st sock). Wednesday is for Wednesday Adams of the Adams Family.

OK, Addams Family has to ds in it. I wasn't allowed to watch much tv as a kid.

That Yarntini Fuzzy Navel is calling out to me. I'm not sure what it wants to be, but it wants to be knit. I can feel it. Good luck!

How about a chevron scarf with two shades of yarntini? both skeins look absolutely delish!

Well... I'm having a little Destination Yarn Spring Shawl KAL... you could use the Copenhagen and knit some sortof lace scarf thing and play along! That or I second the chevron out of the yarntini. That pattern always turns out so fun.

I'm starting a mini Herbivore KAL with a friend tomorrow. The pattern calls for Pagewood Farm sock yarn, which you have in your stash, but it would also look great with one of your STR yarns. Also, I've been thinking of knitting a Springtime Bandit with Mal Silky. From looking on Rav, most people used 2 - 3 skeins.
