So much to knit, so little time

Having all but finished the Perpetual Pink Cardigan (just the i-cord tie to go, will do that this evening), I am looking for a new knitting project. Coincidentally, I am also going to a friend’s wedding in the summer and need something to wear over my dress. Methinks I shall knit something.

However, I can’t think what would be best. I want something reasonably quick and am reluctant to do another cardigan, but I generally find bolero/shrug-type things look terrible on me and I was hoping to have something a bit more substantial than a wrap or shawl – the wedding is on the west coast of Scotland, you see, so not only might it be quite chilly, but I also don’t want to be constantly hoiking up whatever-it-is during the ceilidh. Something that will stay put would be ideal!

Picture of dress is below. If anybody has any inspiration, I would be extremely grateful!

    There’s some nice free crochet/knit patterns for shruggy/bolero things on the Lions Brand website. Possibly there’d be something there that would be nice? I think if it was me I’d got with a plush scarf/shawl…. just a long rectangle long enough to wrap around a couple of times.

Rob Hopkins, Transition Handbook

“Environmentalists have often been guilty of presenting people with a mental image of the world’s least desirable holiday destination – some seedy bed and breakfast near Torquay, with nylon sheets, cold tea and soggy toast – and expecting them to get excited about the prospect of NOT going there. The logic and the psychology are all wrong.”

Barbara Kingsolver, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle

"Food is that rare moral arena in which the ethical choice is generally the one more likely to make you groan with pleasure."

Carlo Petrini

"A gastronome who is not also an environmentalist is an idiot. An environmentalist who is not also a gastronome is, well, sad."

Sharon Astyk

"I am, of course, firmly opposed to consumerism and corporatism in all its forms, and I believe that we are deeply confused about material needs and wants. Now let me explain how books and yarn are totally different than the material things that other people want ;-)…."

Raj Patel, at Slow Food Nation

"Biofuels, which is the preposterous policy that we should grow food not to eat it but to set it on fire."
