grad school, politics, knitting and other meanderings. And not enough time for any of it.

new knitting project

I need a new knitting project. I haven't really knit anything since I finished the last holiday present (but, this last present was finished for my brother when he came to visit in the middle of February). Anyway, it has been too long. And since I am especially stressed out and frazzled, I need the relaxing shutting-down-my-brain outlet that knitting provides. I want to knit a cardigan. I own (I counted last night) 8 cardigans. That seems like a lot, but I wear them all the time, and cardigans are my absolute favorite piece of clothing. Most of my cardigans are the wooly kind that are good for the winter, so I think I'll make a cotton cardigan that I can wear during the spring and in the chilly Wisconsin summer evenings. And since my birthday is right around the corner and yarn makes a great birthday present, this seems like the right time to start a new sweater. I think I want to use this pattern as it is in the round as I love their patterns. But, I am not totally sold on it- I would kind of like something with my shape and with a rolled neck and sleeves. I might have to keep looking around. I also want a cotton blend yarn or even something acrylic (*gasp*)- something that comes in lots of colors so I can do stripes of a few of my favorite colors. Something like Encore Worsted, or Reynold's Signature. There's also Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece which comes in great colors. In other news- Jo comes home today from NYC! Yay!!
