Yarny Goodness!

Another super exciting fun knitblog

  • November Knit Goals

    I'm prone to being a scatterbrain, so I try to make a short list of things to accomplish each month (lest I have 27 different non matching socks).

    Same as last month: Sleep more. Study more. Knit more. Sleep more.

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).

(Also, after seeing this girl’s version, I really want to make the KnitPicks Kimono sweater.)
