I was inspired to free the fug the other day.
The yarn is so much happier now…
The beautiful yarn that was in a stupid vest is free… FREE! I even decided what I’ll do with it. One of my favorite FOs is a Rosedale that I made in Charisma from Valley yarns. The simple pattern shows off handpainted yarn beautifully, because it gets to take center stage. I decided that another Manos yarn in a complementary colorway would do nicely for the corrugated rib. (I also decided that I’m only about 90% sure I have enough of the red for a whole Rosedale. If I run out, I’ll just make parts of the sweater not red.) So, here is what I’ll go with.
I really like it. Now, I just need to finish the other Rosedale I’m working on, so I can recover my supply of size 8 needles.
Unfortunately, I was a bad girl at the yarn store (Woolcott in Harvard Square). See, they were having a sale on Artful Yarns. 40% off. And this yummy Circus called my name and begged to be made into Cathode someday. And maybe I cast on, but I swear, it was just to test it. I promise, I will not really get started until at least August, because July is for finishing stuff up!
I also made some progress on Mesilla, and I’m almost ready to begin the stripes at the bottom.
