today i bought my first sweater lot – not including the carnation pink lamb’s pride bulky from when i first started knitting that is a partially put together sweater in the frog pile. that would be 7 years of unfinished, folks. and probably a bad idea to begin with. all other sweater lots were given to me.
while at my local yarn store today, i could not resist this pile of dark, ugly green (ugly meaning ugly in a good way and i love it) aslan trends invernal. i am thinking i will use it to make kingscot. i’ve been waiting for something dkish weight to call my name ever since i first saw this sweater and it has finally happened. of course, i won’t have any time to knit it until mid march, but you know. it’s awfully exciting anyway!
p.s. applied i-cord. before or after blocking? i’ve never done it before. any opinions would be great!
