So, these are the sweaters I have queued to knit for myself this year.

Photos 1-2 Tuileries (grey turtleneck). it is something that has been on my list for a long time. The model in photo is wearing the sweater with 7-10" of ease, which does not fit my style moniker of Sensual Romantic. So... I think I will knit this to fit with 2-4" of ease and call it very good. To be knit in a silvery light grey woolen spun Cormo yarn. I cannot tell you how overjoyed I am about this yarn!

Photos 3-7 Galloway (fair isle wrap cardigan). I need a little fair isle in my life! And this absolutely sung to me! There is no closure for the sweater. I plan to use a skinny patent leather belt to close it, and wear it with cigarette pants or pencil skirts, and of course, jeans. Uncertain which color to make!! So what do you think? (Photo 7) Originally the gold and grey called to me. But now I think think the navy or the grey/red version would be stunning! Sweater has this 1940s Land Girl vibe to it... which is how I'm sort of making it fit the Romantic part of my moniker.

Photos 8-9 Beauty School (fitted mock neck). I have this on the needles already in a very cool bottle green, as pictured in progress photo 9. I want it with the mock neck, but am knitting it a bit longer to hit at or slightly below my natural waist. (This photo shows the cropped length. Not for me.) I'll probably pair it with my Lysse leather leggings that have ankle zippers until I find high waisted pants. (I am aware that I would be wearing leggings as pants. While part of me cringes, I am using what I own until I can add a bit more to my closet.)

Anyone else here knit or sew their own wardrobe? I finally started knitting for myself this past autumn. Otherwise, I mainly knit for others. So it's exciting to be creating pieces for my own wardrobe. Sewing is still high on my list to do next. But logistics, logistics... 3 cats, a toddler, and a tiny house that is about to have some renovations done. I have no idea where I could lay out pieces of cloth full of straight pins without concern!
