I’ve voted for the Sideways Spencer Fall 2004, Venezia Pullover Winter 2006, Caftan Pullover Spring 2006, Rambling Rose Cardigan Winter 2006, Tweedy Aran Cardigan Winter 2001/2002, Tangled Yoke Cardigan Fall 2007, and am open to voting for more. 🙂
I wasn’t happy with how the SKB was turning out on US 6s in Red Heart, so it’s been reverted to center-pull balls. Haven’t decided if I’ll reknit it in that pattern or another. In the meantime, I’ve begun the SKB in Joann’s Sensations Dolcetto (discontinued, but on sale for $5 if your Joann has it) and Fever (discontinued, but if your Joann has it in the clearance section, it’s $3.17 a hank) cream and cream w/ beads. It’ll be very yummy when it’s done!
Bound off the skirt of the tilted duster and began on the collar (yes, still sleeveless). Have decided the recommendation of 5 inches is not going to work. Sorry, I’m just not that big. Will frog back to add buttonholes (FYI, randomly creating button holes before you have buttons is just asking for trouble). Collar will likely be only 3 inches. Really want to do a seed stitch edge. Skirt curls. 😦
