{Choices... Choices}

I really have been pretty bored with what's on my needles right now. I've been knitting on the Gehry hat for a while, but ran out of yarn so I need more to continue that project. I suppose I COULD finish the Hey Teach (and probably will before I start something summery) But instead of thinking of those things, I have been surfing Ravelry looking for the next project!  These are what I'm considering for myself  - all Free Patterns!

Lelah Top (but with straps probably)

(hey mom, would you like this one for X-mas this year? lol)

What do you guys think? any Favorites? Keep in mine I'm a pretty curvy girl... I need something that will hug my waist a least a little or else I'll probably wind up looking preggers. lol  You guys are all my trusted girlfriends to help me pick clothes! hehehe

Any of these patterns are going to require a new yarn buy, I think.  I'm all stocked up on wintery fibers like wool and bulky acrylic.  What a shame, right? ;)


  1. I saw that Lelah top on Ravelry and fell in love with it!! Yes, I would have to have some SERIOUS elastic up there on top (so straps would be a must for me!) But the style is so cute! That's my fave.

  2. The Lelah top is my favorite too, and I would add straps as well. On the other hand, it's just "a tube", so it might be quite boring to knit. I can understand why you have difficulties to choose. My second choice would be Bliss Blue.

  3. Don't worry about being a curvy girl. Make and wear what you love! I vote for the first or second one. They're what I would choose for myself.

    The Blue Ridge Gal

  4. you should knit Askew and then tell me if it's awesome.

  5. Hehe, Brenda & I think alike! Askew looks like it might even "disguise" a bit of belly, what with all those diagonals. I may have to peek at the pattern & hope I have some appropriate yarn. Happy Easter!

  6. heheeh! so many options! I love all the tops up there!

  7. OMG! How did you know that Egret is the one pattern that I would love out of the ones you posted here?? You can take that as a big "Yes!" LOL
