It’s probably too much of a splurge for us at the moment, but we really need it.
So, I’ve had this gorgeous Cathay yarn knitted up into a sweater that I started last spring while I was in California and just haven’t pieced it together yet. I was listening to February’s ‘Cast-on’ (that’s how far behind in my life) and I LOVE Brenda’s idea of having NO STASH to start 2009 off with.
Recently, I’ve really gotten into the idea of knitting some lighter weight sweaters, especially shrugs. I bought one last year from J. Jill and can’t believe how simple they must be to knit. Digging around on the internet today, I found the Amy pattern and fell in LOVE, LOVE, LOVE with it, especially since I know that I have the most perfect yarn for it. I think the mix of cotton and silk will make this lovely and sexy and practical.
