It's the middle of July, and all I can think about are sweaters. All kinds of sweaters . . . colorwork and cables, cardigans and pullovers, short sleeves and long sleeves, buttons and zippers. You would think that in the middle of summer I would be looking at something cool, airy and light. No. Instead I'm thinking ahead to the weather that awaits us.
I've been contemplating a new sweater . . . maybe Rhinebeck, maybe not. I've been resisting full-blown startitis, and a new sweater would definitely take the edge off. Before I got too deep in plotting and planning a new sweater project, I stumbled across this.
Washington Square. I set it aside for one reason or another when life intervened and didn't pick it up again. The sweater is already assembled. All I need to do is finish the yoke and add button bands. I love picking out buttons, so that doesn't even count as work. This sweater won't satisfy my startitis, but I made a deal with myself. I can start a new sweater if I finish this one first. Fair enough.
Speaking of sweaters, signups are still open for Yarn Knot.
The first installment is a sweater's worth of yarn . . . maybe Rhinebeck, maybe not. No pressure. It ships next month. Follow the link for details.
