I’ve finished one, and have gone back to the cleopatra socks. No photos, the second looks a lot like the first.
Today I picked up a book I’ve been eyeing, Simply Shetland 4. I’ve been interested in Eunny Jang’s Autumn Rose Pullover for a while now. The reason I was interested in it was that I have a lot of shetland yarn in my stash that I’ve been itching to use since I gave up on a project years ago. Of course there’s a story.
About 10 years ago or so I was lucky enough to take a class with Karen Allen on color knitting. The class was focused on designing your own pattern and executing it. I was a little ambitious. I got pretty far on the sweater, but found it a little frustrating as each row took me an hour to knit:
It looked really cute till she outgrew it. My only frustration was the buttons, that kept breaking.
And I think it would work for the Autumn Rose Sweater. So, I’ll sit and figure out if I have enough yarn and in the right contrasting colors to make it work. This should be fun!
