Pure Worsted by cabinfour
I want to knit the simple shawl with Woolfolk Far that I picked up at Purl Soho. I cannot tell you how incredible this yarn feels and luxurious it would feel around your neck. It is made up of ultimate merino and is a chainette construction. You can read about Woolfolk here and a yarn review here. I think this combination of yarn and pattern will be amazing.
Next on my list is a shawl I have been slowly working on that deserves some attention, Sidere, a lace weight shawl by Hilary Smith Callis. For this pattern I am finally using my Merletto yarn by Julie Asselin, a gorgeous blend of 75% merino, 15% cashmere, and 10% silk in the colourway Coraline.

Now if I want to go a little crazy I could bring yarn to start my next sweater project. Here are the two patterns that have made it to the top of my queue.
Lake Effect by Amy Miller is a pattern that I have written about on my blog before. This lacy cardigan would be perfect with my Sweet Fiber Yarns Super Sweet Sock Yarn in Chartreuse. However, knitting a lace pattern always takes a lot of concentration on my part. Maybe I could just get it started?

The other pattern that I am all set to knit is Mailin by Isabell Kraemer. I have been wanting to knit a pattern by this designer for some time. I have found the perfect yarn to knit it in: Plucky Knitter Scholar, a 75% Merino 25% Cashmere worsted weight yarn, in the colourway Twill. This pattern is much easier than Lake Effect but it uses heavier yarn and I know the temperature in the Okanagan is quite hot.

I am not sure what I will decide to bring but hopefully I can show you some progress when I return. I find it hilarious that I am spending all this time planning my knitting but no time on what I am packing to wear! But I know you knitters totally understand.
I hope you all find yourself with some holiday knitting time. Happy knitting everyone!
