Shannon: On the Needles
I love, love, love the Rowena Cardigan in "Knit 2 Together." It's the one sweater I haven't been able to get out of my head. So I made a trip down to Sonya's shop (Yorkshire Yarns) in Lakewood, and she and I spent about an hour looking through her inventory for just the right yarn. When I did settle on one, she ended up having to order it for me so I'd have enough of the same dye lot. Then, when it came in, she sent it on up to me.
If you haven't been down to Sonya's shop yet, I recommend that you make the trip. In fact, if you want, we could all do a run together. Usually those things lead to lunch afterward ... any complaints?
Here's a picture of the Rowena Cardigan. And yes, I'm making it in brown. My only hesitation right now (I'm about six inches into the left front piece) is how I can alter the pattern so it's less boxy in the waist. I want to think this through before I just go decreasing willy-nilly.
So what's everyone else knitting right now?
