I've been knitting off and on for most of my life, so after a brief frisson of excitement about a pattern or yarn, I churn through knits with solid fidelity and subdued enthusiasm. So it is rare indeed that I have such an intense and endorphine/dopamine-laced crush on a pattern/idea! It has been so exciting that I've bought the yarn at full price at 2 different stores, had it all wound without even checking gauge, bought the pattern, and cast on before reading the pattern. And then I swatched, didn't get gauge, and thought, heck, I'll just make a different size. Some knitter-knit pairs are just meant to be.
The object of my affection is Cityscape, by cosmicplutoknits, from the last Twist. Except, it's gonna be a nighttime cityscape, with a sparkly dark grey Dream in Color Starry for the sky, and a dusky violet Dream in color Smooshy for the main body/buildings. I absolutely adore cityscapes and townscapes, and outlines of buildings in general. (This is why I have to limit my Etsy escapades to once a quarter.) Cityscape + yoked sweater + night scene + yummy perfect yarn = mad knit crush. Be still, tachycardic heart!
PS: Also, I would love to crochet this brain hat by Flint Knits, or two of them...when two neurologists marry each other, surely there is some space in the hat drawer for brain hats! Alas, it is a bit too late for this halloween, esp with all the sweater-knitting and all.
