what's next?

After finishing the never-ending project (aka the Tunisian Tweed Blanket), I'm trying to figure out what to tackle next. It's summer, which means I'm way less excited about knitting. It's hard to get motivated to make warm garments when you're sweating and winter seems a million miles away. Also, knitting large garments and blankets doesn't exactly help you cool down.

But the problem is that I don't start knitting again until it's already cold. At that point I want to be wearing cool, handmade items, not knitting them.

Plus, there's the goal I set this year to knit a sweater. A sweater that I can wear. And I'm pretty sure that I should start that soon so that I'm not scrambling to do it in December.

Why are all the cute sweater patterns for kids? I can't seem to find an adult sized sweater that doesn't look...well, super homemade.

Maybe I'll start by knitting a kid-sized sweater and then move onto one that works for me?

I love this Duck Soup Sweater from Blog A La Carte.  (Pattern here)

And how about this Sunnyside Baby Cardigan from Learn to Knit with Katie? (Free pattern here)

Does anyone have any summer knitting suggestions? How about any good patterns for adult sweaters?
