Sweater Weather is Here

I keep coming back to this pullover booklet. I can’t decide which one of these I like the best, but I’m thinking long sleeves would suit me, just something soft that drapes nicely, a snuggly pullover for around the house.

I’ve got both worsted and fingering yarn to pick from in my stash and I’m leaning toward the fingering yarn and a size 6 needle. I’ll need to re-figure the pattern because of the change in yarn, but that isn’t difficult, done that before. I might even make a short sleeve version in some hand-spun cotton for summer wear.

I’ve always got some small knitting projects going but it’s been awhile since I tackled a sweater for myself. Uhm…make that about 25 years! The last large project was Brad’s afghan.

I have several skeins left over of the yarns I used in this afghan and I could probably combine them for a sweater if I decide on worsted yarn. I might even make two winter sweaters! Better get my thinking cap on…

I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl. I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles. In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s. I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
