The chicken has nothing to do with the topic. It’s just as confused as I am.
I spent some time yesterday afternoon poking around on Ravelry. I started with this general idea of using stash yarn (there is enough sweater quantities for at least 5 sweaters) to knit a sweater. I’m cold so of course all I can think of is a nice warm sweater. Using the general knowledge that at least 3 of those sweater quantities is worsted weight I started there.
My first thought was of a crew neck cardigan. It’s such a classic wearable style. I looked at some patterns and the one that quickly jumped to the fore is Sol Inca by Jenjoyce Design. I am always drawn to her patterns. She designs styles that are quite classic. I immediately thought of some Berroco Ultra Alpaca I’ve had in stash for ages. Unfortunately I’d need 4 more skeins in 3 colors. I’m not up for coordinating colors when I can’t hold them in my hand. Also I love her gray version which I’d love to copy. I’ll pass on this pattern for now.
I then thought about Flax by TinCanKnits. They’re patterns are so wearable. I’m highly tempted. I’ve got a couple of yarns that would be great: Ella Rae Classic Wool or Perendale super wool.
Then I thought about Jenjoyce Design Calidez cardigan. It’s a simple classic bulky cardigan. I have what might be enough Rowan Cork that would work well.
Mixed in with the stash are a couple of nearly completed sweaters. I’d have to hunt for the remaining yarn and notes. I could work on one of those. They’d require assessing and some probable ripping.
But then I saw Jenjoyce Design Calidez Vest. It’s a bulky weight cardigan vest that’s quite similar to the cardigan. I know I have plenty of yarn. The Rowan Cork would be perfect for this.
So I’ve added a few patterns to my queue and lined up some stash yarn to use. I’ve thought about some UFOs that I really should revisit. But first I’ve got a shawl to finish binding off, a shawl to finish and a baby blanket to complete before the baby arrives. But once those are done I’ll knit a sweater or a vest, or something.
