Last night, by candlelight and public radio, I swatched for my new sweater. After I posted yesterday about deciding to join in the NaKniSweMo challenge, I did a quick search for easy and quick sweater patterns and remembered that my dear friend, Erin, knit Carol Feller's Iced Cardigan recently and loved it. I know that what I need right now, while reports say that my neighborhood may not have power until the weekend of November 10, is a comforting bulky knit project.
I have two skeins of Cascade Ecological Wool and got gauge on US11 needles so I've cast on and already feel the calm and peace I get when I start knitting. Now more than ever, I really appreciate my stash! The yarn is a rich dark coffee color (hence the name of my project) and my plan is to have my fireplace going all weekend, coffee pot full, and knitting project by my side.
Now if I can only think of what else to cook for dinner besides pasta!
Safe and happy weekend everyone. xo
