color stranded, sweaters

Moving On

Fungi4With only 20 rows of color work left on the fungus sweater, I’ve decided to put it away for a while.  Yesterday, the birds were singing and the sun was shining and it dawned on me that I won’t even get to wear my sweater until the fall. Maybe that is why I am having so much trouble finishing this one.  Well, that and the fact that it’s a sock-weight color-stranded sweater that knits up at a snail’s pace.

Fungi4With the weather so beautiful, I’ve been itching to knit up something light and fun.  And, yesterday I fell in love.  Check out #99 Flutter-Sleeved Blousy Lace Cardigan by sweaterbabe.  I found this beauty on ravelry and I’m so excited about this one.  (The sweater image is linked from ravelry and is not my finished sweater.)

flutterlaceI’ve selected a soy/cotton blend from my stash to cast on with. It’s got a striping effect but with the subtle color difference, I’m hoping it won’t ruin the look of the sweater but just add interest. Time will tell. I’ve also got a few other colors in my stash that could work so maybe the future will hold more than one of these guys. 🙂

  1. Gorgeous sweater, but totally understandable to put it away for a bit now.
    The lacey cardigan is super cute, and will be a lot easier to wear in the summer 🙂


  2. Sometimes Spring comes and Winter knits just have to go in a bag lol! Both the mushroom jumper and the lace cardi are lovely! Show us how you’re doing!
