Reality Sets In

So yesterday, remember that I was obsessing about the same sweater that the Yarn Harlot wrote about in her blog. I even had the Rowan book in my shopping cart... then reality set in.

The reality of 5'2" with my 42" bust line:

There's no way that sweater would be even remotely flattering on me.

So, instead, I ordered "No Sheep For You" so I can obsess about Morrigan.

Of course, I'm still obsessing over Matt's SOA:

Actually, it was interesting to read about Jenna's thoughts on aran sweaters with no wool. I use cotton/acrylic blends mainly for it's easy care. My Spring Forward Cardigan is one of my very favorite sweaters, and I know that's one of the reasons is that I knit it with TLC's Cotton Plus. The sweater is soft and is wearing like iron. Working cables with the yarn was comfortable and it's holding it's shape beautifully. Plus I can just throw it into the washer and dryer. That makes it a "no worries" cardigan.

I can't begin to describe how nicely Matt's SOA is turning out. The photos do not do it justice, as the fabric needs to be felt to believe just how comfortable this sweater is going to be.

Okay, I'm done writing, as I basically have to type every single letter twice. My keyboard is completly wonky (I thought it was dog hair related, but I'm beginning to wonder if it's not just more issues with the motherboard. Piece of junk notebook)

Have a good weekend!
Keep on Knitting!

    Just discovered your blog and viewed your finished projects gallery. I've knit some of the same projects, and it's nice to see them in other yarns than I chose. Just curious why you didn't knit the Great American Aran Afghan for a sampler type?
