As much as I don’t like to admit it to myself, I do not need to buy yarn. I have three sweaters worth of yarn waiting for me to knit, and it’s honestly about time I got to it.
Here are the contenders.
I have Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Bulky in Stormy set aside for Fireside, by Jane Richmond. I’ve been in love with this pattern since it dropped, it looks like it will be a fun and relatively quick knit, so I don’t know what’s stopping me.
I have Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Sport in Mink Heather and White set aside for Bobbie by Pam Allen of Quince and Co. This pattern, while perfect, may not end up looking as fantastic on me as I want, so I’ll have to wait and see about that one. Things I love: the sleeves, the stripes, the length, the boxiness. Things I might not love: The length with the boxiness. I haven’t super decided yet.
I have recycled merino in the color of a porcini mushroom. When I say recycled, I mean that I purchased a sweater from the thrift store, unraveled it, washed it, and hung it to dry so the kinks are all gone, and now I have beautiful yarn. I’ve been considering Grace by Jane Richmond, even though my lace skills are not so great. I always miss a yarn over, or I don’t knit two together when I should. Regardless, the pattern is beautiful, and I would probably wear it all the time.
So there they are. My next three sweaters. Here’s what I propose: one sweater on the needles at a time, and one sweater on the needles at all times. It can’t be that hard to finish three sweaters, right? Worst comes to worst, I’ll have entirely too much wool ready to wear by the spring thaw.
