Let the Nominations Begin!

Hey Gals and Guys! You may now start "officially" nominating patterns for the next knit along! The summer knits were fun but I've got "fall-fever" somethin' aweful!

Have fun with your nominations and PLEASE remember to hyperlink your patterns so that the long URL's don't mess up our sidebar! If you don't know how to hyperlink your patterns, please ask because someone will be happy to explain it to you! I'd do it here, but I'm running short on time (sorry)! We will take nomintions until the end of August.

Don't forget to enter your name in the drawing if you particpated in the Tempting II knit along!

Have fun nominating!!!

Edited to Add: Please put your nominations in a separate post -- not as a comment to this or someone else's post, as it may not be seen by all the readers. Including a "smallish" pic of the pattern and the hyperlinked pattern name would be awesome! That being said, I nominate the Simple Knitted Bodice. I like this pattern because you can knit it in either long or short sleeves and it claims to be "the easiest sweater you'll ever make!". Yep yep, that's my nomination.

Don't forget that if you like someone else's nomination, to leave them a comment under their post letting them (and the rest of us) know that you like it. This way, in case we have more than 20 nominations, we will know which ones to keep and which to cut.

Edited To Add Again: The question of yarn substitutes has come up and since I've already purchased this pattern I thought I'd post what is printed in the pattern as possible yarn substitutes. I can think of MANY more possibilities as I'm sure many of you can as well.

(Yeah, I'm doing it the lazy way... just click on the image to maximize and read it.)

I can't seem to post a hyperlink here, so I'll just let you know that the pattern I'm nominating is the Knitting School Dropout's Leaf T pattern. It's on my blog. Hope others have seen this pattern before!

My Nomination:

Cobweb - Rowan 40

My nomination is for Sizzle. I know you guys are heading into cooler weather, but I haven't wanted to take part in any of the summer knitalongs because it's been subzero here in NZ - so now that it's about to get warmer I want to knit some summer stuff! Plus, I think you could knit it in wool and wear it as a vest for a nice autumn knit.

I like the Simple Knitted Bodice. In fact, I liked it so much I bought it just now regardless of whether we do the knitalong!

Estellika said...

Oooo, this one I'll make- the simple bodice, regardless!

Fyberduck said...

I totally second/ or fifth the bodice pattern!

Miss Violet said...

I'm triplefifthing the Simple bodice -- I've already got it on the needles, but it. is. FABULOUS.

And ubersexy.

TeAntae said...

I was all set to re-nominate my earlier suggests until I saw yours. WOW! I vote for the simply knitted bodice!

mary said...

I love the Simple Knitted Bodice but hope there is a more reasonably priced yarn to substitute! Stefanie Japel is a genius, isn't she?

purple turtle with sticks said...

i REALLY like that one.

Jeanie said...

I already have the pattern for this so I'm knitting it regardless and YES, there are several alternate yarn options printed on the supplemental information included with the pattern. I'm going to paste that info into my original post as an "edited to add".

dobarah said...

The Simple Knitted Bodice looks stunning...and the way it is knit means I can't misplace a piece. I like that in a pattern!

Disentangled said...

I just got the yarn for the Fitted Bodice - so I'm all for that one!!!

Sherri said...

There is already a knit-along for the Simple Knitted Bodice (I already joined) http://simpleknittedbodice.blogspot.com/

Lumie said...

I also vote for the simple knitted bodice. It instantly became a most have sweater on viewing of the long sleeve version. I hope this time I can join in on the fun.

pam said...

I am definately knitting this pattern asap, so I'd love it to win the KAL vote!!

Marisol said...

I would love to knit the Simple Knitted Bodice too. I'm new here and this would be my first time participating. This would be a great piece to work up for my first sweater.

I hope I'm not delusional:)

nix said...
