I picked this yarn up at our yarn shop's first annual stash-busting event. I got it for $3! There's almost 500 grams of 100% worsted weight wool here and I haven't quite decided what to do with it yet. I don't usually gravitate towards pink, but this is just the perfect muted shade of pink that I couldn't say no. I don't know what brand it is or anything, so I don't know what yardage I have either. Some of my friends think it might be handspun because each cake is a very different weight, but I just don't know.
In any case, I was thinking either Flowing Lines or Sullivan. What do you think? Can you think of any other sort of simple sweater patterns for about 900-1000 yards? I was also thinking just a simple stockinette sweater would really show off the heathered pink. I guess I should just do a swatch and see what happens! Maybe I'll design something...hmm....
I'm itching like crazy to cast something on, but I have to finish a sample shawl (almost there!), study, and finish a couple other stray projects. Whatever the pink yarn wants to be will have to wait until late summer or fall. Sybil is back on track, just needing sleeves and a band. I'll show you Wednesday. She's gorgeous and well worth the time-out. There are a couple other things I might pull out again, but I haven't decided yet. Depends on how springy spring decides to be. If it stays cold, I'll pull out heavier stuff, if it warms up, I've got some lovely legwarmers that need some attention. :)
I'll be back Wednesday. I hope I won't forget to post this week. :P Keep knitting! I'll see you soon!
