With the year of the sweater underway (if you missed it details are here) it is time to make a serious wardrobe assessment for myself. I only really have 1 knitted sweater for myself, my Antler cardigan. While I have a lot of kiddie sweaters and a few designs planned for 2015 I will also be knitting 3 sweaters for me!
First up is a Prairie Fire pullover. I’m going to knit it in the GORGEOUS Rainbow Heirloom Sweater Emily gave me for Christmas (the color is Black Cherry, of course). I have knit a few smaller sizes of this sweater and I love it. The lace repeat isn’t too tough for me to memorize but it probably won’t be conversational knitting.
Conversational knitting definition: knitting that can be done while carrying on a conversation. The opposite of conversation knitting would be quiet corner knitting.
Which brings me to a dilemma. I have this beautiful yellow (it’s called Princess Phone) in Plucky Sweater. I originally intended to knit myself a Gramps sweater with a nice brown contrast color, but now I’m thinking I would love a Flax in this color. Decisions decisions.
I also have a beautiful stash of Tanis Fiber Arts Amber Label DK in ‘seabreeze’. I am going to knit myself a Windswept sweater in it, but I think I’ll make it a cardigan instead of a pullover (I’ll post all the details, don’t worry). I love the lace panel on the Windswept and have been wanting to knit one since Emily first showed me a sketch!
So my question for you is, which sweater are you knitting for yourself in the year of the sweater? Do you throw on a pullover? Prefer an open cardigan?
