Tickle Me Tuesday: What to Knit?

Happy Tuesday Everyone!


I am linking up with Sarah for Tickle Me Tuesday! 
So this week, I, once again, need your help! Yup, it's again another knit project. I have my cardigan picked out, and yarn picked out-but you'll just have to wait and see what it will be :)
So this time, I am looking at shawls-my newest obsession. It's like a cowl, but bigger and generally lighter in weight for spring/summer time. I tend to freeze in my office-so something around my neck is essential, plus, it's fun to create and of course to wear. One can never have too many shawls or cowls! 

So now, I need your help picking one out. I love them all, so I will be happy with which-ever one wins!

Earth & Sky by Stephen West. I love this because it uses 3 colors! You'll see why below.

Pogona by Stephen West. Another great Stephen West piece, but only one color-maybe I could use 2.

Scalene by Carina Spencer. I have seen this piece before and love it! Two color combo with an opening to slide the shawl piece through-great idea!

Springtime Bandit by Kate Gagnon Osborn. Once again, one color, but I already have this pattern (it's free) and it's really cute!

Stripe Study Shawl by Veera Valimaki. I think I have had this piece favored for a really long time! Maybe now is a good excuse to knit it! Haha


So now, the colors. Canopy Fingering provided by Melissa of Wool & Honey! Check out her shop, it's awesome! Also, I love nearly every color she has stocked in Canopy, so please check out more for suggestions. 

Color 1

Color 2

Color 3

Color 4

Color 5

As you can see, this is tough! :)

Yay! Hello fellow knitter. You must share the pattern for the spring time shawl. I am in the middle of knitting a blanket for my nephew to be but I have a feeling it might take me months! It is an intense pattern.
Love Elle xo
