January Blahs....

The cold, dark, gray days of the Pacific Northwest are getting really, really old. I'm ready for spring and the sunshine to be here. Usually, I enjoy a good "hunker in with your knitting" day, but I'll admit, I'm bored with the Pippa Bag project. So on that note, I've decided I need to start my first sweater project. But now comes the hard part of picking out a pattern. I'm soliciting ideas/sugesstions. Here are some of the one's I've got on the list for now:

  • Twist - I love knitting cables and I do want to challenge myself with a pattern.

  • Hourglass Sweater from LMKG - Pretty, but could die in sk hell

  • Mariah - Very pretty, but have heard the cables are super hard

I'm leaning towards a cardigan as I'm always cold. I'm also planning on going through all of my knitting books to find a pattern I might already own - novel idea I know! If you have any sugesstions, let me know!

I definitely vote for twist! I can see it already! And I am wearing a cardigan right I concur that they are the perfect addition to any outfit!!! :) Thanks for all of the comments. I was waiting for a good Vandals refrain from an Idaho fan to support my anti-Bozo State feelings! -S
