I'm not officially cutting myself off from the LYS, or making actual goals or anything, but I am going to try and knit down some of the sweater batches I have in my stash this year.
And it's rainy today, so it seems like a good time to think about this.
Around 2000 yds of a really pretty cream colored worsted wt wool. I have something in mind. It's based on a sweater I saw in a maternity store this fall. Yes, a maternity store, but I have a different vision than they did - it was just the nugget for my idea. Long chunky sweater, cream yarn, big black buttons and and a lace pattern. Mmmmm.
Here's sweater #2. The Sunrise Circle. I planned to use some Rowan Yorkshire Tweed I have upstairs, but forgot I already began a cardigan out of the Rowan. I like that sweater idea too much to frog it, and this green Arcuania Nature Wool turns out to be on gauge if I knit it on #5s.
Sooo.... Sunrise Circle in Green.
In case you're wondering about the scarves, I'm ignoring them only because they're coming to New Orleans with me. Can't finish ahead of time or I'll have to resort to socks. And I am not in a sock mood these days.
PS Thanks for the birthday wishes! xo
