I did it again.

Well, my Sally Melville’s “Where’s the Opaque? Sweater” went from this:

to this:

a lot of knit stitches, and I realized that I wasn’t sure I was going to wear a glorified short poncho (Sally Melville’s Knit-Round Scarf), so I picked up one of my other books (this one I’ve used before, and will definitely keep), Anne Budd’s “Knitter’s Handy Book of Sweater Patterns”, and discovered that this sweater bottom (she creates the patterns from the bottom up usually), while a bit too large for me (but not too large for me to not keep going), fits in correctly with the “small/x-small” sized raglan sweater pattern. So I’ll keep knitting and see how it goes. Worst case, I have a large sweater and I slightly felt it. We’ll see. I am enjoying the Cascade 220/220 Superwash Fibonacci pattern, definitely.

And I made out yet again this week! Chris was nice enough to send me a gorgeous sock yarn that I haven’t tried yet! I guess I’d better get to some sock knitting! I know I have two half pairs done of other socks, but when you get new gorgeous yarn, you’ve got to put it to the front of the line, right?

Stash accounted for, 141 skeins.

    I like the 2nd picture on the sweater, love the stripes, sadly I can’t wear them. However, that sock yarn is just so you! 🙂

    Yay! I’m glad it arrived! You can see why it made me think of you, right?? 🙂 And there’s nothing better than stripey socks.

    Pretty sock yarn!

    I like the second, stripey sweater picture too. And if it’s a bit large… remember, it’s getting cold out. There’s nothing like layering to keep you warm, and being able to fit an undershirt and a thinner sweater under there could make you very, very happy in a month or two.
