Sweater Fever In Spring?

Okay!!!  Don’t ask me why cause I can’t explain it.  Sometimes there really is no rhyme to my reason.  LOLOL!

I’m still swatching for Flax.  I got side-tracked after this first swatch attempt but now this project is back in the fore-front of my mind.  The Simply Cotton needed too many mods to work and for a newbie sweater knitter like me, I just need simplicity so I can focus on working through the construction.  I’ll use that yarn another time — maybe once I get more sweater knitting experience.   I also took a while looking through my stash for yarn.  I have stuff that I’d like to use but didn’t have enough yardage.  Since I didn’t find any other with the same yarn specs and yardage that was needed other than the KP Brava worsted in Fairy Tale —  Fairy Tale it is.

Sweater Swatch II

Sweater Swatch

I’m really working on having this sweater started before this week is over.  Gaaaaaaah!!!  Can’t believe I’m —><— this close to starting.  😀

What are you all working on?

P.S. This giveaway closes tomorrow — first day of spring, so make sure you enter if you see anything you like.  Who knows, you might be starting Spring with a collection of brand new patterns!

    I love that color! I am supposed to be starting a yoga mat carry bag but I’ve been ill the last few days. I am going to try to be up and at em today though so we’ll see how that goes. I reallllly looking forward to seeing this sweater, hopefully it’ll make me brave enough to try one myself. 🙂

      Do what you can when you feel better love. That bag is going to be there to be made once you’re well. As for a sweater, with your skill-set, I’m sure you can start one now.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE the color and your stitches are so even and pretty and precise!
    I’m working on a new lace shawl called Tristano in Regia sock yarn. Not so sure of my feelings for the yarn and how it will block out…we shall see. I start the first of 5 repeats of chart 4 tonight.

      Thank you so much for your compliment Paula. It’s taking a while to get started but I really want to do it and do it well.

      That shawl must be awesome already! You’re truly a lace maven!
