It Wants to be a Colorful Cardigan

Voiced by Amazon Polly

I saw this yarn at the Loopy Ewe in Fort Collins and it just called out to me so I got enough for a sweater “just in case.” 

When the #blamedunderknitalong KAL started, I just knew I’d have to use this yarn for one of my projects.  I know it is…or wants to be… a colorful cardigan.

So I swatched…

And swatched some more…

Now the hard part: making a decision.

You know what happens when I have a hard time making a color decision?  I add more possibilities to my choices list!   

So, I dug through my stash some more and found some minis and another merino singles – all of which are colors that are in the coral colorway of the Uschitita. If I decide to add any are all of those to this project, then I’ll probably go with the lighter purple mohair – the color called Imperial – because it brightens up everything.  But, if I just stick with the two colors of Uschitita, then I’m not sure what I’ll do.

Of course, these are not my only design decisions.  I also have to figure out if I want to do some sort of stranded or mosaic colorwork or if strips are the way to go or even if I just want to do some texture.   <sigh>In the meantime, I will just work on my other #blamedunderknitalong projects – a cowl and a wrap.
