First off, I am a knuckle head.
That sweater is the Stacy Pullover, not the Shirley Pullover! [thanks to Jess for picking up on that] As for the modeling shot – I fear it will have to wait for: 1. better lighting 2. better bra
I am waiting for some Beaver to Slide into my mailbox. ; ) It is under consideration for my percentage sweater project. Of course, I could use some stash yarn. But that yarn was bought years ago for nothing in particular and as a result has sat, knit and ripped and now unknit.
Speaking of that , on my ladies lunch day last week, one of my dates mentioned her new approach to yarn purchases. She will not buy yarn unless her very next step is to cast on for the intended sweater/project. Years of knitting have taught her that should she buy something with the thought of knitting a particular project, if she doesn’t start right away, another pattern comes along and grabs her eye.
I am going to adopt this for my credo too. Except sock yarn, I will always buy sock yarn. My credo has an addendum! What I haven’t worked out is what my new philosphy will mean for my existing stash.
In more knitting news, I used my new Knitpicks needles to cast on for a pair of socks last night. These needles get a most definite thumbs up from me! After reading through my sock pattern collection and casting on for a few different patterns, I believe I will simply knit 2×2 ribs.
Sometimes simple is best.
