Before I get into today’s yarny goodness, I just wanted to let you guys know despite the sudden summer like weather I’m still chugging along on my cape. I’ve got a couple more inches of the body left and then I’m going to block it before I pick up my neckband and button bands. I’ll try to take some pictures and share on Friday. It’s coming along just perfectly and I can’t wait to share it when I’m finished. Okay…now back to yarn.
As I’ve been working on baby things for friends, I realize despite the warmer temps I love the feel of good wool yarn. I bought this Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage from Webs last year and I love it. The color is Kilim and it’s simply stunning in person. Seriously these photos don’t do it justice.
But here’s the problem, it’s so pretty I don’t want to knit with it. Am I insane? I find that what stays in my stash are the expensive yarns because I feel like I want to find the perfect pattern because the yarn is so perfect…but I never find the right pattern! So help me out and give me some suggestions on what you’d knit with this lovely yarn? I have 1400 yards and it’s worsted weight, so I can knit a sweater but which one?! And I want to make something with it and soon because Maryland Sheep & Wool festival is next month (are you going?) and I am going to buy yarn so I need to destash to make room!
All suggestions are welcome.
