Those are the only patterns that speak to me, too.

A few of the summer patterns caught my eye as well, but I think it's prudent for me to focus on knitting from my existing pattern collection!

Hope you are well.

I'm also pretty ambivalent about this issue -- not surprising, as I don't often get pulled in by the summer patterns. I did like the cardigan you picked out and the Tee, but wish there was a clearer allover/front view. I don't have my copy handy right now but I know there was another very pretty, laceweight pullover, gossamer cables rather than Y/Overs, that interested me. Like you, though, there's nothing I feel I have to cast on for any time soon.
