New Year, New Project

Like I really need a new project! But it's been a couple of years since I made myself a sweater. So, in the spirit of the new year, and goal setting, I cast on for a new sweater.

I've had this yarn for a while waiting for the right design. It's formerly an Eddie Bauer sweater of 76% wool/24% silk in a natural brown. At about DK weight, it should make a nice indoor garment.

Katarina is by CocoKnits. I love the simplicity of the shaping. It looks like it will be pretty flattering for a variety of body shapes. I'm casting on for size large.

I love the color of this sweater!

It looks like the color of a good cup of cappuccino--not TOO much milk.

And the cardi is a stunner--I may have to follow your lead!

Absolutely beautiful. I bought some Katmandu Tweed DK when it was on super clearance at WEBS, and now I think I know what I'll be using it for... Thanks for the inspiration!

I love that yarn! I wish I could get the hang out of recycling yarn.

It's going to be great. I just checked out the pattern, bought it and love it. Now if I can find some yarn.
Thanks. Can't wait to see your finished product. It truly is a lovely sweater.
