Indecision about projects – what do I knit next? What do I do with the yarn I want to knit?
Silky wool/tweed sweater in yet another incarnation – I didn’t rip out the hem (that was a lot of work!) but I took out the red stripe and am planning on just doing a grey body and red sleeves. Hopefully I’ll have enough of the grey! It’s going pretty quickly now though, and is a nice plain knit that I’m rather enjoying. Until I have to decide about the shaping, of course.
I also swatched some of the Rowanspun 4ply I bought from elann awhile back. This is double stranded on 4.5 mm.
I’m getting a touch less than 20 stitches per 10 cm, and I’ve decided to do a simple jacket, based on the Indian Summer Jacket from Interweave (scroll down a bit). No bells and whistles, just plain. With hook and eye tape for the closure, which I think will be pretty cool.
I picked up the tape today at Fabricland, as well a new rotary cutting mat and a bunch of buttons, all at 40% off. Buttons for dreamcatcher? Check! Sewed them on? Not so much. But soon.
