the second half

Okay, more cardigan link love and more vacation shots.
Us. {Surprise! I know, I don't show faces often.}
I'm pretty sure I have chosen the next one to cast on. However, there are so many on my list.
This is THAT sweater by Kim Wagner. (Thank you, Kim. I can so see why this is THAT sweater! Love it.)
In the round Cardigan. (Thank you, kathy b. I couldn't find the link to this one.)
Girl Friday Cardi and Breezy Cardigan. (Ness! I can see why you could live in the girl friday cardi. Thank you. I love that stitch pattern. I think the breezy cardigan looks pretty livable, too.)
Eve's Rib, Twist Vine Cardigan, Knit Swirl. Carol Sunday. Where have I been? I have seen Acorns (cute!), but got totally sidetracked over on her site. SO many beautiful knits. (Thank you knittin brit in wi. Oh, a cashmere/merino blend sounds lovely! And the Knit swirl...swoon. )
New England Knits. (Oh, Erin. I seriously need to spend some time with that book! Thank you.)
Aidez, again. (I think this must be a favorite, Peggy. Thank you. And I think you should begin immediately. You can do it!)
Mountain View. (Thank you, Kathy. Really love all the detail in this one.)
Sullivan Cardigan, again. (This must be one of the Wool Peoples favorite. Thank you, Ty. Hope the heat wave passes soon. Beth, have you cast on for it yet?)
Harvest Moon by Heidi Kirrmaier. (Thank you, Kathleen. I think Heidi is one of my new favorite designer. Such beautiful patterns.)
Larch Cardigan (Thank you, Jeanie and Linda. This one does catch my eye. Like I mentioned, I do love an a-line.)
Jingu and Santos from Berroco. (Thank you, Tricia! I know, I feel the same way. Can't beat wearing a cardigan.)
Moshup by Norah Gaughan. (Fast and cute. The perfect combo! Thank you, littlebitsheepish.)
Abigail Cardigan (Thank you Proud Mama. SO cute. Cast on today!)
Opposite Pole by Joji. (Tracy! That is beyond cute. Love that it is seamless. Beautiful work, Joji, again!)
Lily Cardigan. (Thank you, kellsshells. Love, love, love that little picot edging.)

Okay. Thanks so much for all your input. I truly think there is a pattern for all of us in those! Get busy choosing yours. I'll let you know what I choose soon. I have some narrowing down to do.

Thanks for all the great links! I have cast-on for Aidez this week and hopefully it will turn out well. Great seeing a pic of you and your beautiful family....what a beautiful place for a vacation :)

I've been a Carol Sunday fan for a while now, yet STILL haven't cast on for one of her gorgeous patterns. How are you EVER going to decide????
Serious love for the beach vacay pics - Leslie, everyone is growing up so much!! The kids (and you too, doll!) look so happy and great. What a wonderful time you must have had in such a beautiful beautiful place.

These last two posts are so fabulous....I'm book marking both of them. thanks for all the time that went into linking everything for us! You are wonderful. I don't even know how you'll choose...but I'm certain that whatever it is, it's going to be great. Love the photo of you all!!! That was a fun surprise!

It seems so strange to say about a strangers children, but they're getting SO big! Libby was a little girl when I first started following your blog and now look at them!

I can't wait to see what you choose, you've inspired me to try to get something done for myself this fall. (and thinking about the pictures of Libby as a little one has reminded me of drive-thru which I've wanted to knit for YEARS) along with new hats for the whole fam!

MadMad said...

What a beautiful family photo, and oh, my goodness, that Libby is a mini-me! (Well, mini-YOU, of course.) Hope she knows how lucky she is! :)

kim said...

Oh, my gosh. Love the new banner and that picture of your lovely family. Bella!

Berlinswhimsy said...

Wow, so many links to love here! I'm especially drawn to Larch, for what it's worth... ;-) But, my primary reason for commenting is to tell you how beautiful that family photo is! It's so nice to see you all... Happy Summer!

caknitter said...

Omg, Leslie, your daughter is gorgeous!
I am loving all of these links.
Thank you once again. :-)

Julie said...

I know you're done with the links but I was just going through my favs on ravelry and saw Harvest Moon. I'd forgotten about it but really like it. I already got yarn for Snowbird though, I can't wait to get it and start!

Jennifer said...

I know I am late to the party, but I just cast on for a Daedalus from Knitty. Love... And EASY!

Kathleen said...

Thanks for all the links. So fun.

So glad you had such a wonderful vacation with your beautiful family! Thanks for the links.

Chris said...

Thx for all the links. And BTW you have a beautiful family. Thx for the pic.

ninironi said...

Thanks for sharing the links to all of these wonderful cardigans. I decided a while ago to cast on for Aidez; I'm still trying to decide on the yarn though. Now, for sure I'll have to add Girl Friday and Sullivan to my queue.

Looks like a great vacation! I can't wait to see what you cast on!

Oh dear, Leslie. I think I'm going to be sitting in front of my computer for a long time looking at all these links--loving every second of it.

Maryse said...

This is an awful lot of suggestions, wow! Yesterday, I found my next sweater I think in the most recent Twist Collective: Twinings by Amy Hergoz. I think this is love at first sight ;-) I look forward to seeing your new sweater!

Alisha said...

Meredith said...

This list is great! What about Alderbrook by Cecily Glowick McDonald? It's a bit heavier. It's in my queue!

Ellen said...

Wow! Lots of lovely links. That's a wonderful shot of you and your children. Nice to put a face with a blog.

I'm hoping that photo is your Christmas card for this year. It's absolutely wonderful!! Reading these comments, I was right...a movement!
