New Year, New Process, New Yarn
Just around Christmas I started a new sweater, which would have been knitted by now, if I hadn't decided to change the sleeves from 3/4 to full length and then some. I had a nagging feeling of déjà vu, when it struck me that I had exactly the same experience with my red sweater last New Year - obviously I fall for winter sweaters with 3/4 sleeves, which I don't like on me - some inconsistency with the full length of the body, the wooly texture, you get it, so I have to unravel some part of the sleeves (here the elaborate cuffs) and redo the sleeves to full length.
I'm almost done, so I guess after wet blocking I'll be able to have a photo session of my new green sweater later this week.
And here's a peek at my new yarn - wool-silk tweed in my most favourite copper color. It's going to be a cardigan, that's for sure, but which design? I really like Glenna C.'s Jurisfiction or maybe Cirilia Rose's Aidez, but with some button bands? I like the yarn so much that I feel a kind of fear not to get it wrong. Silly, I know :)
