I like to think big. I like to think about what I am going to do next, when clearly I still have weeks until I’ll be able to start the next thing. In the intervening weeks, of course, new patterns become available and get my attention.
But right now, I have 3 sweaters’ worth of yarn. I want to think about that. (Let’s not think about the cough20+cough future socks I have stashed away. I am thinking sweaters right now.) (Also, I am sorry that I surprised you with more yarn. I hit that sale again. I am weak.)
I am thinking top-down raglan, because I do not like seams. They are scary.
Right now I am thinking Sahara, Wicked, or the Simple Knitted Bodice. All worsted weight, because that’s what I have. All long-sleeved, because I do not think short sleeves and wool (Cascade 220) go well together in my climate and living environment.
I am not a skinny girl, but I have curves in the right spots and a waist separating them. I need something that does not make me look like a sack of potatoes.
I also want something that is mainly stockinette, but has some interest to it as well. I don’t mind paying for a pattern, but I’d rather not buy a whole book for just one pattern. I could check it out at the library, though.
I’m also not afraid of a little math. If there’s a great pattern out there that just needs a little tweaking to be right for me, I can do it.
Whaddya think? I’m open to suggestions, opinions, verdicts, voting, scorn etc.
