Yes, I started another project . . . shut up!

IMG_0310
I started another sweater to work on at the shop. The one I started before this (that I had the good sense NOT to show) was just too much to do and to help others. I mean it isn't very nice to tell your customers "uh, can you WAIT, I am counting"! Lace just isn't for multitasking. So! I started "Broadway" in Rowan Cashsoft DK. The pattern is in ClassicCafe book 1. So far it is an enjoyable knit. Then again, you will probably see me sheepishly trying to get out of knitting it in about one week.

Talking about getting out of things, I am getting out of doing the man's sweater that I posted here in one of my first posts. It was made out of Polar. Rown is discontinuing Polar so I don't want the damn sweater as a model anyhow. What a perfect excuse to not have to finish the sweater that I had no one to give it to and it was too big for everyone including the male mannequin. Speaking of mannequin, she is doing fine.

Oooh, Broadway. That's a good one...plus it is a good cut for you. I'm not saying you're short or anything. Yes I am.

That's the bitterness talking--I thought about making Broadway and my BF said it would be too weird looking on me because it's so cropped. So I made Liberty instead.

Karen,
There has to be SOME perk to being short. I loved Liberty but thought that I would look like a "litte(er) person" in it.

I want the man's sweater! I love that sweater! Can you hear the begging in my voice? Post a picture of Broadway. What color are you doing it in?

Janis said...

I am so stupid. I forgot the picture. No you can't have the other sweater because *I* am not going to finish it.

OKOKOK! But, the new project is very cute!
