I’ve been thinking a lot about the sweaters I want to knit and the yarn that I have. While I really, really want to knit the Notre Dame de Grace pullover, I’m not entirely thrilled by the thought of knitting in double seed stich FOREVER right now. Don’t get me wrong – I love the way it looks and I think it will be look great in the yarn I have for it. That being said, what I really want right now is some simple, mindless knitting that will get me a sweater. I do love working on Starlight and the yarn is a joy to work with, but every 4th row is a cable row all the way across 50 zillion cables (okay, I’m totally exaggerating, but you get the idea). I’m not digging that right now. I want to knit and not think much about it. I think this is why the socks are almost done – the foot is just knit around and around and around… I love it right now! Every other project I have is taking up mucho brain power and I’m just not into it.
I keep thinking about that darn Noro in my stash. It calls to me to be knit. It needs to be a sweater, a cardigan sweater. Just what I need right now – the pretty colors of Noro in something simple. I know exactly what I want to do with it: Top-Down Raglan Cardi.
Tonight, I will cast this on and I have a feeling it will be done in no time.
