With only 20 rows of color work left on the fungus sweater, I’ve decided to put it away for a while. Yesterday, the birds were singing and the sun was shining and it dawned on me that I won’t even get to wear my sweater until the fall. Maybe that is why I am having so much trouble finishing this one. Well, that and the fact that it’s a sock-weight color-stranded sweater that knits up at a snail’s pace.
With the weather so beautiful, I’ve been itching to knit up something light and fun. And, yesterday I fell in love. Check out #99 Flutter-Sleeved Blousy Lace Cardigan by sweaterbabe. I found this beauty on ravelry and I’m so excited about this one. (The sweater image is linked from ravelry and is not my finished sweater.)
I’ve selected a soy/cotton blend from my stash to cast on with. It’s got a striping effect but with the subtle color difference, I’m hoping it won’t ruin the look of the sweater but just add interest. Time will tell. I’ve also got a few other colors in my stash that could work so maybe the future will hold more than one of these guys. 🙂
