Why can't it be fall already? so that I can knit with some Shelter wool and start with the Vega beret from this collection :)

I've got my eye on the Shadow pullover and the Levenwick cardigan.

Thank you for posting this. There are some great patterns. I would also like to try his yarn. Summer usually means lace or small projects (socks)due to my short attention span. However, the heat has driven me inside for a portion of the day and I'm actually contemplating working with wool as we have the air conditioning on.

I've been knitting with wool, but only little things: hats, mitts, etc. The drape-across-my-lap projects will wait till it's wonderfully cold again.

Except for the ice & snow, I do much prefer winter.

I bought the Levenwick pattern.

I made Birthday Gloves for my Mom with Shelter. It is a very lofty yarn but since the sweater is next to the skin, I'm thinking of using my new love, Madeline Tosh Vintage Yarn for Levenwick.

I want to knit that beautiful shawl in Helen's Lace-- "Rock Island".

I'm sort of slathering over it, if truth be known! Then Shadow or Levenwick, but I'd have to make the neckline larger, maybe like Shadow. Wool around neck is to be avoided at all costs!
