Finish things before starting new things? Whaaa?
Posted by Amber on March 10, 2006
I’d been considering all sorts of wooly pullovers for my next project … but then it was over 60 degrees outside this morning, so I’m thinking that maybe something light would be fun for my next project. Like say: Spring Fling!
I was going to do a theoretical ruffly cardi (ruffli cardi, if I wanted to be
cutesy cutesi, anyway, a cardigan with a ruffle), which was going to come from my stash – but all I have for that project is black and dark purple yarn, and Spring Fling just seems like it should be white or pink or periwinkle or something. If I made it in cream/white/ecru I could wear it with just about all my summery dresses I never wear because they’re all sleeveless, and with most of the skirts I never wear. Will ponder.
(The theoretical sweater is coming along, I’m about 2 inches from finishing the back. I’m feeling kind of meh about doing the front for a second time. First thing I need to do is get a new cable needle. I lost one, and I’ve been using hairpins, which were fine for a single stitch wide cable on the back of a mitten, but not so good for a giant sweater. Also I’m thinking straight/bell sleeves ala Tubey, rather than tapered (normal) sleeves. Not sure yet. It’s harder to roll up Tubey sleeves, but it wouldn’t be so hard to fit a long sleeve shirt under it (a problem with the gray sweater I used for reference the other day).
