New Project Idea?I'm currently knitting S a hot-water-bottle cozy. Nothing exciting, but with the temperatures dipping, it's necessary.
But I'm trying to think of another project to put on the needles - something mostly mindless, but no socks or scarves. Add in the added requirement that it be from stash if possible, and I've got quite a quandry...
So I'm currently thinking the Union Square Market Pullover from Interweave, Fall 2005...
and for yarn, I'm thinking the recycled cashmere...
I originally bought 3 XL cashmere sweaters on super-sale. I used some of the yarn from one of the cream sweaters to knit Elizabeth I, but I have all of the blue, plus a full sweater in the cream plus the leftovers from Elizabeth, so I should have PLENTY of yardage. Currently, I'm trying to figure out a color combination - I like the blue as-is, but I'm not thrilled with the idea of blue with cream accents for the Union Square pullover. Maybe dye some cashmere brown (paying close attention to the dye amounts so I can re-create if necessary?) Dye the cream into 2 colors and let the blue hang out for the next project?
It figures - I think of a project, and then can't decide about colors - even with a huge mound of cream colored cashmere just begging for the dye pot. Any color suggestions?
