Meghan's Top 5: Selfish Knits for 2020

It's that time of year when the temperature plummets, the snow storms are piling fresh pile of powder on my doorstep, and all I can think about it knitting by the fire. It's around this time when my selfish knitlist bubbles to the front of my mind, so I thought I'd share with you my top 5 wishlist knits to make in Forge and Weld

1. The Twigs by Junko Okamoto

Indeed, this is at the very top of my queue! I love Junko's designs and The Twigs is certainly my favorite of all her gorgeous designs. The pattern is waiting patiently in my Ravelry library, and I already have my colors in Weld (Raven + Ash) picked out for this selfish knit! 

Until I have time, I'm going to continue drooling over Kehley's (@kehleycovi) gorgeous WIP, also in Raven + Ash.

 2. Summit by Sloane Rosenthal

It comes as a surprise to none that I love Sloane's designs. I've coveted Summit for what seems like eons now, and I'd love nothing more to have one in Weld. This light-weight, cozy, and over-sized cabled masterpiece is perfect for Weld worked at a looser gauge. The fibers bloom beautifully to create an airy, but warm fabric. I'm thinking I'd like this either in Charcoal or Red Feather. What a great conundrum! 

3. Volitare by Christina Danaee

Innovative colorwork is something that always catches my eye, so when Christina released Volitare I immediately smashed that ❤️ button. I love the subtle, monochromatic colors palette she chose for the original and I'm inclined to choose a similar subtle colors for my own sample in Weld

 Evergreen + Juniper 

OR

Midnight + Lake

 4. Pitch by Emily Greene

 

Friend of the flock Emily Greene's Pitch is my next selfish knit project. I've been dreaming about a coatigan like this and Emily's design fits the bill! My New Yorker wardrobe is, as expected, mostly black and grey, so I'm inclined to make Pitch in a color of Forge that coordinates. 

Fawn, Ash + Charcoal

5. Kailash Cabled Cardigan by Michele Wang

And last, but certainly not least, the Kailash Cabled Cardigan by Michele Wang. Michele is my favorite knitwear designer and my list of "to make" project probably exceeds possible knitting hours in my lifetime, but this coatigan is a must-make. I love the drama and grandeur, along with the sensible appeal for a fall/winter city dweller. I imagine myself walking the pupper and strolling around the city in my elegant duster, and there is only one color of Forge that springs to mind–Midnight. 

Midnight coordinates with black, gray, denim, and a wide range of other colors. I can't think of a more perfect color for this magnificent coat! 

Thank you for indulging my selfish knitting wishes. Stay tuned for Sloane's Top 5 next! 

Happy Knitting,

Meghan

p.s. Since I started writing this blog post a surprise selfish knit came into my life! 

* BONUS  PROJECT * 
Star Crossed by Jacqueline Cieslak

I couldn't help myself and immediately swatched for this perfect "Meghan" sweater. Although I love the use of Spincycle Dream State for the contrast color, I chose to keep it all in the H+W family and am using Forge in Raven for the MC and holding together Weld in Ash and Aspen for the CC. So far I don't have much to show for myself, but a wee bit of ribbing and two rows of the colorwork chart. 

 

I have to give a shout out to Emme (@rocksteadyemme), of Starlight Knitting Society, for her rad test knit of Star Crossed in Forge and Spincycle Dream State. She inspired me to make this sweater, and I just have to say how inspiring it is for me, a plus size woman, to see gorgeous plus size designers and knitters rocking their knits! 💪

    How to Recover Lost Coins from Hacked Crypto Wallet / By Captain WebGenesis.

    A phishing scam was used by an imposter pretending to be a celebrity artist to steal $204,700 worth of cryptocurrency from my Trust wallet. I was helpless, depressed, and ready to do anything to get my money back. I used all essential methods, but to no avail. I came across numerous glowing testimonials for Captain WebGenesis, a company that helps most victims of financial fraud recover their money. I took action and made contact with the professional. Fortunately, all of my misplaced money was found and returned to my wallet. I wholeheartedly recommend Captain WebGenesis to all victims of scam who want their money returned.

    LOVE SPELL TESTIMONY

    Thank you so much DOCTOR ODUNGA for making my ex boyfriend come back to me. I am writing this wonderful testimony in respect of this man. He made all my wishes come true. My boyfriend and I dated for more than 3 years and although we had had so many quarrels we never thought of a break up. One day, he called me over the phone telling me how he is tired of the relationship and cannot see anywhere that we are heading to. Months passed and my boyfriend did not contact me anymore and I did not hear from him anymore and his cell phone was disconnected. I knew I needed to seek help because of the love I have for him. I contacted this great spell caster because i have never contacted anyone before and i tell you that after a week of contact, my ex boyfriend called me and asked to see me and the next morning, he wore a ring on my finger. I am very happy because I am soon going to be a married girl with the help of this great spell caster. I promised to manifest your works to everyone and please contact this man to help you

    LOST RECOVERY MASTERS ARE VERY CONSISTENT AND RELIABLE HACKERS, THEY SAVED MY FAMILY.

    The Lost Recovery Masters Group of Hackers saved Me from my cheating husband. My husband had a family outside our Marriage and had been spending my money on them.. I became suspicious at a point due to his late calls privately and his frequent money asking habit which he was using to fund his family. I got fed up and had to seek a Hacker to spy on his phone and to my disbelief this group proved my suspicion was correct. The Hackers got me proof of his message and calls including the address of his other family where he was spending some quality time when I was at work. if you need such services reach them through,;
