The Knitter's DilemmaLast night, S came upstairs and asked if he could have "one of those Mr. Rodgers sweaters, you know, with the opening in the front." A quick peruse of Ravelry led to a couple of possibilities, but S basically wants a plain cardigan that's "not too thick and warm." Also, no "cables or ribbings or whatever makes it bumpy."
I pointed out that we could probably buy him a nice, plain sweater for less than what it will cost to buy the yarn for me to knit it for him. Plus, that way I wouldn't have to gouge out my eyes with my knitting needles on the 4 billionth stitch in a plain stockinette 42" chest cardigan.
He looked at me and said, "but then it wouldn't have that extra special Maevie touch!"
We're going to start looking at yarns.
