I thought I'd hold a contest! Why? I need help, my friends. I need real help. Who doesn't these days, right? If I hear Mariah singing "All I Want for Christmas" one more time, an elf is going to get it.
I'd like to start a new sweater. I'm caught in that Big Project Tunnel. I'm smack in the middle where there's no light. I feel like I'll be knitting Cleite until I can gift it to a daughter-in-law. I'll still be crocheting the Hexagon Blanket when I'm wearing big floppy shoes at the Home. And remember Curve of Pursuit? That one is on hold until I can get the right color cream for the final triangle.
I'll use links for the contest because I'm not sure the correct netettique with posting photos. Vote on my next sweater project & leave a comment on why I should knit you choice.
1. Therapi: Do not be swayed to vote for this one since it's brand spanking new. You know how much I love a cardigan. Especially one that will make me say, "What was I thinking picking this sweater?!" while I'm picking up 2,000 collar stitches. When I'm binding off those 2,000 collar stitches, I'll be screaming "What the hell is wrong with me?!" But there's something comforting about being wrapped in a big cardigan. I love the top down-ness of it. I love the stitch pattern & shaping. I also love the part that will send me to the bottle, the big ribbed collar. I think it would make a pair of PJ pants look chic. Isn't that the point of a good cardigan?
2. Bubble Pullover (raverlry link) (non ravelry link): I have always wanted to knit a Norah Gaughan pattern. There's something about this sweater that sucks me into its web. Especially her version. I would probably downsize it too. Lately, I've been simplistic with my wardrobe choices. I grab the same choices when I'm in the stores. Nothing too trendy. It's the very reason that I haven't swatched for this sweater. I might be ready to jump...
3. Garter Yoke Cardigan: Please reread the bottom part to Choice #2 & that's the reason I picked this little ditty. A nice knock-around cardigan. I'm sure that it would be a long lasting knit. Also knit from the top-down which makes it a wonderful choice. I love garter stitch & I love a cardigan. Almost a perfect storm, people!
Vote & comment! Cast your vote by 12/21 & I'll draw a random number for a random Knittiness prize! Oh I got Knittiness flowing out my holiday ass. I'll look at the results, do some consulting, & make a choice. The final vote will weigh on my decision, but I'll make the final verdict. Even the producers of American Idol get to weigh in on the finalists.
PS - Edited by your sister since she has nothing better to do on this "snow" day other than edit . . . and finish two pairs of socks.
