saucy stitches

Friday, January 05, 2007

Here's the thing: I bought this nice Cascade wool in a chocolate brown and I envision making a nice aran patterned fitted sweater out of it. The problem is, I can't find such a pattern, and am having trouble designing something of my own. I was thinking something along the lines of EZ's fishtrap sweater, but I'm not a fan of the big diamond patterns. I want something that Veronik Avery would design, but apparently her website is down. I was thinking Rowan's Demi, but I don't want to track down the pattern book. I've thought about knitting a nice simple stockinette sweater, but I have my heart set on cables for this yarn.

Come to think of it - I may have seen that Rowan on Sheila's shelves at some point. I have to make a phone call...
