Fall sweaters

I don't know, and I don't want to jinx anything, but I think that just maybe it might finally actually turn into fall around here. Believe me, I'm not complaining about getting to enjoy an extra week or two of warm weather, but with my deep love for autumn and all that goes along with it, I'm ready for cooler nights and fall treats and sweaters. Especially the sweaters.

People on Pinterest are posting all sorts of pretties (...and today's post is brought to you by the letter "P"), and I'm craving sweater weather plus sweater knitting like nobody's business. A few of my very favorites are below.

Lady Kina by Muriela (this one is knit by wranito)

I Heart Aran by Tanis Fiber Arts

The Campus Jacket by Amy Christoffers

And just for the magpie in me, the Sexy Cardi with sequins from Victoria's Secret

Before I buy any sweaters or cast on for new projects, I have a truly great one on the needles that I need to finish up. According to Ravelry, I've been knitting this thing for so long that I can't even bring myself to admit how long on the Ravelry project page. I think that means I cast on in 2008 or 2009. Time to finish up! Only a sleeve and a half are left to go, and they're only 3/4 length sleeves, so I am determined to crank them out this weekend.

I mean, even the picture is outdated, because the body is still on the needles in this shot. I'm determined to get my act together so I can wear this beautiful thing. Look at the fantastic cables! Ignore the cat hair!

Any fall sweaters that have caught your eye? Any unfinished projects shoved in the back of a closet that you're willing to fess up about?

Cat hair? What cat hair ;)

I'm not telling you about my oldest UFO. It's lying on the sideboard, exactly where I left it, oh, more than a year ago. Poor UFO.
