I never thought it could happen. I love this shrug. It's a clever little rectangle that will be transformed into a shrug soon. I'm using Debbie Bliss Merino DK (From the Cambridge Miracle Stash Enhancement brought to me by the Wounderous Husband) on US 3 Holtz and Stein Needles.
Do not speak of the Twist Front Top and the Shaped Triangle. They are sealed in a dark room with stiff drinks. Maybe the Hooch will slap some sense into them. Then again maybe not.
So what we need here is distraction of the Noro variety.
I'm making the Classic Brooks Sweater from The Opinionated Knitter. I like the lines of the sweater and the pattern as written builds in a few inches of ease, perfect for me. I know I already have a considerable number of sweaters in my closet, but my evil plan is to move somewhere where the weather dips below 50 degrees F. Somewhere where it gets really cold, say 30 degrees F, and stays cool enough days of the year so I can wear all my hand knit sweaters. On top of all my other hand knit items. All at once.
With that in mind I've ordered yarn for my next project (the Husband has taken to his bed, he feels the yarn buying situation is hopeless). Lyssa is the brainchild of this knit (too bad I can't send her a bill for the yarn). I'm making my first She-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named sweater, Inishmore from Fishermen's Sweaters. I ordered yarn from WEBS. The name of the yarn contains the word "Soft" and I'm hoping I can infer that the yarn is soft on the hands as it's knit. But it only cost $12 per pound so if it's not soft I'll be in my own Sartre like hell, with No Exit.
