This summer while vacationing in California we traveled to Sequoia National Park. The forests were beautiful and truly awe inspiring. While camping there, I started a sweater for myself. I had selected a basic pullover for the pattern and some beautiful Quince and Company yarn. The sweater flew off the needles as bulky yarn is quick to knit. I modified the pattern very little and was pleased with the result.
hooking instructions from the Yarn Harlot I added some stability to the neckline. This helped a bit, but the fit was still not quite right. I decided it needed better shaping, changes to the yoke, more length, and different yarn. I set the sweater aside.
High Line Scarf, the Modern Garden Cardigan or the Iced Cardigan. I thought about frogging the completed sweater, and I stopped. Did I really dislike it that much? I do, so I frogged the sweater, and it actually felt so good. I now have the yarn balled and ready to make into something new. I am still trying to decide between the three patterns, which is fine. There are still two projects on my needles and a long queue to knit. Still the yarn is calling. It wants to be something beautiful. So, which would you make?
(Joining Ginny for the weekly Yarn Along. The above tinking was the biggest knitting accomplishment for the week. As for my two live projects, I am almost finished with the Holden Shawl. I finished the suggested repeats and am now doing another section of the lace, since I have a lot of yarn remaining. The sweater has only grown an inch or two. Reading is hit or miss. I am having a hard time focusing on one book, so I have been reading a page or two from several).
