Future Projects

As one project draws closer to its conclusion, a girl's thoughts naturally turn to future projects. Here are the possibilities:

The Beloved Clapotis
Yarn Status: Purchased an inexpensive wool (fairly similar colorway, actually), although the Lion and Lamb used here is sooooo nice. Maybe one day...

Lovely French Market Bag (and I NEED a decent project bag)
Yarn Status: Have some Cascade 220 around, would need to buy more; Would like to do a red and orange one.

Fair Isle Sweater from winter 2004/2005 Vogue Knitting
Yarn Status; Have inexpensive alpaca in similar colorway (although I'm feeling a little iffy about my purple replacement for their eggplant color).

Corset Sweater from Interweave Spring 2003
Yarn Status: Have exact original yarn (bought close-out)

Featherweight Stole from Exquisite Little Knits
Yarn Status: Have fairly inexpensive substitution for Kidsilk Haze

Cardigan from Rebecca 25
Yarn Status: Need 8 balls of GGH Safari in dark brown

Jacket from Rebecca 27
Yarn Status: Have Rowan All Seasons Cotton (love eBay) in a dark gray

Angelina Jacket from White Lies Designs
Yarn Status: Got it

Estonian Lace Stole (individual Fiber Trends pattern)
Yarn Status: Have 2 balls of lace-weight mohair in light jade green

Nordic Baby Sweater (12 months - 2 year size) from Knitting for Baby
Yarn Satus: Have Manos in greenish blue and gray

Nordic Baby Hat from Knitting for Baby
Yarn Status: Have Manos in pretty green

Sparkly Scarf from Exquisite Little Knits
Yarn Status: Have it in blue colorway

Elizabeth I Sweater from Tudor Roses (this model freaks me out)
Yarn Status: Bought it (and started it, like, 4 years ago *hangs head in shame*)

Assorted Baby Sweaters in do-it-yourself raglan pattern
Yarn Status: Have some wool superwash in various colors

Barely Mentionable Poncho: This is an inspired-by-Jay-McCarroll knit (instead of his crocheted) poncho, but I need to do some serious math to work out a pattern.
Yarn Status: Have 4 balls of gorgeous Kyoto in a similar color. Need sequins.

Okay, so that's a pretty good summary of my stash, too (nearly, anyway).
So what's next? Good question. I think the corset sweater would be fun, and it's cotton, so it's good for spring/summer.
