No WillpowerSo I started a new sweater last night... no, not the green/black sweater that i've been planning, but rather a light grey ribbie pullover (possibly turtleneck) with dark grey stripes across the chest (and maybe sleeves). I wrote up the pattern last night (up to where I join the pieces), using the completed ribbie cardi as reference.
I'm obviously making some changes- first, all k2p2 ribbing for the whole thing. Second, it'll be shorter than the cardi, and the sleeves will be longer. I'm still undecided about the collar... I'm seriously considering a t-neck, but we'll see as I get closer to that point... I figure I'll decide when I'm writing out the instructions for joining/raglan shaping.
One downside to this project is that the yarn is on a 2 lb cone (courtesy of elann... GREAT yarn!), so I can't exactly pick it up and carry it around with me. Luckily, with the holiday break coming up, I won't be needing a portable project for a few weeks... at which point I think I'll start a sock. My friend daf is getting married, and she requested "more socks" as my present to her. My plan, then, is to pretty much continuously knit socks for her between now and the wedding, and she'll get as many pairs as I can make!
