Is how I feel about this next project.
I actually love the details and how the thing worked out, but want to to play with yarns a little more before it's ready for the Big Time. I love this Jaeger, but in the end, I think some oomph is needed. Can you see how the taupe is a little flat? Maybe even if I had made it in a brighter solid, I'd be feeling the love. The taupe is lovely, but in the end, it might need something a little busier. Or bright accessories? What do you think?
You can totally tell I haven't committed by the simple fact that there has been no button selection. I don't even have the urge. Pretty telling, don't you think? Usually I hear that siren song long before the knitting is even ready.
In the meantime, I'm going to call this guy a Prototype and put him on a Fall schedule, which will give me plenty of time to play around until it feels right.
Instead I've picked up a different packet off my desk and have begun a new swatch. After this, I'm going to play with texture and a bright color!
And hey, let me say THANKS so much for all the commentary on the Short Lucky and White Russian! Hugely fun. Can't wait to see them on your needles.
