Here's my list in no particular order:
1. Endearment by Hanna Maciejewska, a beautiful cardigan with a cable and lace pattern in the front knit in fingering weight yarn. I have wanted to try a pattern by this designer for some time. I think some of my Sweet Fiber Yarn Super Sweet Sock in Sapphire would work well.

3. Japan Sleeves by Joji Locatelli is a fingering weight striped sweater with a lace panel going up the sleeves. I have some leftover Tosh Merino Light in Teddy Bear and I am thinking of pairing it up with Tosh Merino Light in Robin's Egg.
4. Vector, found in Wool People 7, by Tanis Lavalee. This scarf pattern looks like a great project to do on the side, when I need a break from all that sweater knitting. It is knit mainly in garter stitch using a finger weight yarn. I have bought another Pebble Sock Black Trillium Gradient Kit in shades of grey. I think it will make a lovely scarf for a friend of mine.

5. One last sweater that I think is stunning is Caroline by Amy Miller. Guess what? It's in fingering weight yarn again. I must be a sucker for punishment. I love the lines of this sweater and the cabling up the sides. It is simply beautiful. I also like that it is a seamed sweater because I think seamed sweaters hold up the best.
Of course there are lots of beautiful shawls and cowls that I would love to do as well. Too bad I work for a living!
As you can see I have hours of knitting ahead in the above mentioned patterns. It will really help me fly through the winter. If only these patterns were knit in a sensible weight like DK or aran, not in fingering weight yarn! Slow knitters like me would be crazy to attempt the above.
Call me crazy!
