This morning (early) I frogged my first sweater.
Well...it's not like I've never ripped out the odd row or two. However, this was the first time I'd frogged the back of a jacket, which I'd half-done, and left untouched, oh...say 4-5 years!!! Why? Well, I still liked the colours (red, grey and white worsted), but not the style or the stitch. It'd become quite boring to work on, made worse by the fact that I'd selected jumbo balls of yarn (yes, it's synthetic) which made it far less portable...
Now, I'd be willing to port it, if only it had captured my interest. But no...so I've frogged it and set it aside till I can get back to it with a new jacket pattern from Jean Frost's Jackets, Jackets, Jackets. I bought it recently from Chapters/Indigo Online -- $29.95 CAD -- and it's chock-full of gorgeous jacket patterns, many Chanel-style (my very favourite!) I'll keep you posted on my progress!
Another potential project I found this week was the "Sitcom Chic" sweater featured in the latest issue of Knitty -- a favourite online knitting magazine. It's a darling little cardigan with 3/4-length sleeves, an eyelet accent, and a single button one is encouraged to have fun selecting. I just got a bag of Sugar 'n' Cream cotton in Delft Blue from Mary Maxim -- ostensibly for another project (a summery long-sleeved tunic, partly in basket-weave), but now I'm thinking some might be fun for this...
So many ideas, so little time!!
