Summer Top MAL Progress

Tolsta Tee size 3 is coming along well.  I'm about 4.25" from the underarm.  Only 7 more inches to go.  I put it back on the needles from my stitch holder cord and finished the first 100g cake of the green (Lichen) yarn this morning. 

This weekend I'm going to be busy with the CNY Fiber Festival & working Overtime to earn extra money to spend on yarn.  This morning I'm scouring Ravelry for patterns I want to make so that I know what yarn to look for tomorrow.  Otherwise I will come home with a skein of this and that and just add them to my stash.  When in doubt, I just buy 100g of sock yarn that I know can become socks or a beanie with no thought required.  After knitting the Tolsta Tee for me & for Jo, I think I will work on a shawl.  The ones I'm pondering right now are the Boneyard Shawl by Stephen West, Ashes by Joji Locatelli, or Inclinations Shawl by Andrea Mowry.  I also have the Shetland Lace Shawl by Alice Karachi in my stash of patterns that I own that I want to make. The sweater I might try again (with the proper yarn this time) is the Comfort Fade Cardi by Andrea Mowry.  The last attempt was with expensive LYS acrylic in solid pastels that did not fade, and I would have worn it but I changed the needles on the sleeves and didn't like the fit, so I gave up on it.  Or the Elton sweater by Joji Locatelli is intriguing me.  I feel like I might want to work on something with a mohair yarn.  I wish I could go back and buy more of the lace weight mohair from Lorna's Laces when I thought That was expensive - now it's ridiculous how much mohair has gotten.  

I have prepared my list - wish me luck!
