Loose Ends

I’ve finished Mary’s Christmas Sweater!!!! It’s in the box and ready to be mailed — I just need to find a card worthy of it!

Now I’m kind of floundering as I look for my next project… I LOVE this Kimono and have been imagining myself wearing it as I sit on the patio knitting or blogging or reading.  I even bought the pattern.  But, the recommended yarn is orphaned.  The company – Mission Falls – went out of business and not all the colors are available.  With all those colors to match, finding a new yarn is going to be a complicated (and probably expensive) project.  And I really just want to get started knitting.

I’ve been thinking about sweaters and really like the Oak Leaf sweater on the right.  And I’ve found a couple of other patterns I like too.

The online pattern store, Pattern Fish has a lot of patterns from the eighties when big-baggy sweaters were the rage. So I’m working my way through their collection and I’ll settle on something one of these days.

In the meantime, I think I’ll use some yarn from my stash to make a shawl.

Unless I change my mind.

  1. I love the lacy little shawl. It reminds me of the delicate tatting my grandmother used to do.

    • I really like it too — and since I’ve got a cool golden-colored yarn, it really might be my next project. I’m feeling a lot more confident that I can do it now that I’ve finished THE SWEATER.

  2. I love Mary’s sweater, Katiebird. Beautiful work!!!
