Cold: Part II

Actually, it should be part III, since I posted about nice cabled sweaters awhile ago too, but here we go again.  This is mostly filler for what I really really want to post, but since I’m not done yet…  I refuse to post about it until I’m done.  (But it’s so close to being done!!!  ARGH!)

Last night I was poring over my Interweave Knits mags and trying to decide (yet again) what sweater I wanted.  Man, I am picky.

The Buttercream Jacket (Ravelry link) is very cozy looking, but I’m afraid the V-neck is quite low on me.  And I’m not sure how I could raise it because of the way the collar is knitted.

Beach House Pullover (Ravelry link) is awesome, but I don’t want to cable every other row.  Too many cables for me.  (I’m like Goldilocks.)

The Williamsburg Cardigan (Ravelry link)  has that same deep V-neck (and part of the problem with this picture is the sweater is so over-sized that it’s lower than it needs to be), but it is more easily remedied than the Buttercream Jacket.  The smallest size is 39 3/4″.  A little too big for me.

Ah, the Hawthorn Pullover (Ravelry link).  It wasn’t my first choice because of the high boatneck, but it’s grown on me.  Especially since I realized I could easily convert it to a scoop-neck.  I think this is the one I will knit, with some modifications, of course.

Now to pick my yarn… (oh dear, that’s going to be another story for another day!)  I think I’d better get back to finishing that project before I lose myself in decisions again.

    That last one is growing on me, too, but I think you could fix the collar on the first one by just adding one more button, a little higher up. You should have an uneven number of buttons anyway, right? 🙂

    It’s always fun to think about what will be on the needles next, especially when working on complex and long things like you do!

      The thing is, the top part of the collar is knitted in 3 parts. And then you have the buttonband, which makes the whole thing 5 parts. 5! I don’t even wanna begin messing with that yet. Maybe it’ll be a future project. Maybe.

      Yes, it’s always fun to dream about what’s next! I would love to see a sweater made of sock-yarn leftovers.
