Ghost sweaters:

Vintage Pink Cardigan Venezia Sweater
Cabled Cardigan Tangled Yoke Cardigan

These are the sweaters I crave. They haunt my dreams at night, begging to be knit. On the top left, we have the Vintage Pink Cardigan by Norah Gaughan from the Spring 2005 Interweave Knits. Top right is the Venezia Sweater by Eunny Jang from the Winter 2006 Interweave Knits. Bottom left is a cabled cardigan by Margaret O’Leary from the Fall 2006 Vogue Knitting. Bottom right is the Tangled Yoke Cardigan, also by Eunny, from the Fall 2007 Interweave Knits.

The yarn for the first two sweaters is already sitting in my stash, except for one ball of Jamieson’s Spindrift that I’m going to swap out for a different color. They are in the queue for whenever I finish my frantic re-knit of the Hourglass Sweater and Rogue.

If there is still winter left when I finish those, then I will cast on for the other two sweaters. I have wanted a black cabled cardigan exactly like this one for years. I see everyone wearing one, but for some reason I cannot find one I like in stores—something is always wrong, whether it be cut, fit, or quality of materials. Knit out of the right yarn, it will make a good all-season garment.

The Tangled Yoke Cardigan, well, it’s just pretty.

Now if only the blasted weather would cool off again so I can knit without sweating. Is that really so much to ask?

    I love your taste! Two of those are already in my Ravelry queue (venezia, tangled) and a third might have to be added (cardi)!

    Love the sock pattern!
    A friend of mine may be knitting the Venezia sweater for me in exchange for sock yarn I dyed for her.

    I too have been fiending on that Margaret O’Leary cardi. The yarn she used is $25/ball!!! probably due to the cashmere content. Anyway, my yarn sub choices are down to Jo Sharp silkroad, or Elann sierra if I am really budget conscious.
