First things first, the winner of the KAL prize drawing is Jodi! Congrats Jodi! Thank you again to everyone that participated. I had such a great time that I will definitely host KALs for future patterns. a Rafflecopter giveaway
Since the beginning of the year, I've been making an effort to keep my queue both up-to-date and manageable. I used to use it as a "maybe I'll knit this someday" and suddenly it was overflowing. I likely wouldn't have lived long enough to knit my (pages and pages) long queue. So now, once a month or so, I'll check it to make sure that all of the patterns I've queued are things I'll actually knit. I also check to make sure they're things I want to knit soon. Soon is the keyword there. Everything in my queue is something I'd knit in the next 6-9 months. Most, I already have the yarn for and I just need to get to it. Organizing my queue has kind of become an obsession to me, but it definitely makes it easier to choose my next project.

The top 5 patterns in my queue are:

1. Bayside Pullover by Hannah Fettig; I'll be knitting this for MadMay in Tosh Merino Light in Wash.

2. Pressed Leaves by Alana Dakos; I'll also be knitting this for MadMay in Tosh DK in Magnolia Leaf.

3. Color Affection by Veera Välimäki; I bought 3 skeins of Malabrigo Sock for this - Light of Love, Azules, and Violeta Africana.


4. Oak Trail by Alana Dakos; I have a skein of Tosh Vintage in Weathered Frame set aside for this. I might try to also squeeze this in for MadMay, but no promises.

5. Gramps Cardigan by Kate Oates; I was gifted the pattern (thanks Monica!) and yarn (thanks Mom!) as birthday presents, so I'm especially excited to start this. I have KnitPicks Swish Worsted in Dove Heather set aside for this project.

So there's a little peak into my knitting plans for the next few months. My complete queue is longer than this, but these 5 patterns will be knit (and very soon). Knowing me, I'll probably sneak a few other small projects in here and there.

How's your queue looking? What are you planning to knit next? Anyone else participating in MadMay?


  1. That is a nifty little gadget for giveaways! I might have to snatch it and put it to use in the future!

    1. Rafflecopter is really fantastic. There are a bunch of options (I used the free one), you can moderate your giveaway while it's running and it does all of the hard work for you. I highly recommend it!

  2. I love all of those patterns -- lots on my to-do list too! I look forward to seeing how they go.
