Knitting

Considerations

Having spent the better part of today flipping through Ravelry and thinking about the project I would like to cast on next (yes, I am aware of my 3 WsIP, shut up), I came up with the following considerations:

  1. I would like to go from Cast On to Cast Off fairly quickly.
  2. I do not feel like knitting socks or any other small project (hat, mittens, etc.)
  3. Even though spring is coming, I would like the finished object to be something fairly warm and cozy (hence the need for it to knit up quickly).

I think I have narrowed it down to Iced, but I don’t have a good yarn for it on hand. Not that I am completely opposed to hitting the yarn shop, I was just hoping to create something kind of for free out of thin air, if you know what I mean. One possibility is to knit it with a worsted held double. Lord knows I have plenty of worsted weight yarns languishing in the stash, but I guess the question then becomes do I have enough of the same kind of worsted languishing in the stash to make a bulky weight sweater? Tomorrow, I think I shall dive deep into the stash tomorrow. Hopefully I will remember to take pictures. Send out a search party if you don’t hear from me.
