As someone who loves to do research before tackling a new project, I took to the blogosphere and started reading: Unfancy, Into Mind, The Every Girl and looking at Pinterest which is rife with inspiration: here, here, and here, to name a few. All this reading and looking has me excited to tackle my closet this weekend, a task that has jumped to the top of my to-do list. I haven't fully decided which plan of action I want to take: limit my capsule to a particular number of items for a three month period, rid my wardrobe of items I no longer wear, or something completely idiosyncratic to myself. I won't know until I actually go through all my clothes but one thing that I have been thinking about and feel like committing to is creating a capsule of hand-knitted sweaters for next fall and winter. There are certain colors (mainly neutrals) and styles (I love turtle necks) which will certainly be on my needles soon but I'd love your suggestions.

I've created a pinterest board of woolly sweaters that I'll knit in the spring for the colder months and welcome any and all pattern recommendations that you have. I'm more partial to top-down, raglans but to have some diversity in my capsule, I know I need one or two set-in sleeve designs, too, so send them my way.
These two pullovers are examples of the look I hope to achieve in my wardrobe eventually. Tres chic, oui?
