Friday Favorites

A lot of blogs I'm reading right now have at least one day a week dedicated to a specific topic. Some are about food, some are WIPs, some are just pictures of the day.  I think I'm going to jump on this bandwagon, too.  My plan is to dub Fridays my "Friday Favorites."  I'll share different things I like, want to try myself, or just admire.  At first I was going to restrict this to items I'd really like to knit.  But I thought that was too limiting.  So it will be a combination of lots of things.  Today, though, will be about knits. :)

I really like this sweater. Everything about it is cute, from the pleated sleeves to the simple hood.  I could see my sister in this sweater, it's her kind of cute.  And it'd be great for both cool and warm weather.  The pattern has a cloud pocket on the front, but I prefer it sans pocket.

Something about this hat grabbed my attention.  I can't put my finger on what exactly, but I immediately liked it.  There are so many things I've never tried, including stranding.  This would be fun to try.  There are several finished hats on Ravelry that I like, including the variegated blue version shown above.  The variegation adds a bit of interest to an already beautiful hat.

And how could I leave out on of my very favorite things on Friday Favorites?  I've had a love of horses since I was a very little girl.   This Icelandic pattern was brought to my attention the other day and I love it.  I love the look of this knitter's stranded yoke and the prancing horses.  This one would be a purely selfish knit! :) 

That's all for today's Friday Favorites!  I hope you enjoyed this sneak peak at a few items as much as I did sharing them. :) Remember, come back and visit future Friday Favorites! :)
