to knit, or not to knit …

Another wonderful and elegant design from brooklyntweed — He calls it the Juneberry triangle. I even love the name! This one is going to make my resolution to only knit from my stash a very, very difficult resolution to keep.

I already have a slightly variegated indigo lace-weight silk that I have put aside to use for this…

… the Aeolian Shawl from Knitty.

Meanwhile, I’ve got Cachou (bless you!) on the go in a soy silk. I know I’m going to love it when it’s done.

It looks like it’ll be one of those grab-it-as-you-run-out-the-door kind of sweaters, a favourite that’ll go anywhere anytime. But all that seed-stitch! It’s a great pattern but oh so tedious.

If the weather man wasn’t calling for snow tonight (!?), I would likely be switching from cardigan to lacy shawl right now …


The sweater that was doomed

All done… seams sewn, ends woven in, buttons sewn on. I discovered when I was done that I’d forgotten to make button holes, so I did a crotchet slip stitch up the side that should have had button holes and made loops through which I could look the buttons at all the appropriate places.

It still doesn’t fit (just like it’s predecessor knit of the same yarn but using a different pattern), but I like it anways!
After all, it’s a Norah Gaughan design. What’s not to like?
