In less than two years, my stash of Paton's Classic Wool has gone from this:
It was planned for Southwest Goes Uptown by Lily Chin, published in Knitters magazine Fall 1999. The slip stitch pattern gave me some trouble, and a terrible experience with SonShapes who failed to make me an ever so gorgeous wood 36" size 10 circular needle for $35 left me a sour taste on this project.
The previous entries: here, here and here.
The coat rested in the back of my closet for the past year, and couple of weeks ago I finally ripped it all out. My it felt good!
Now go on and plan the next challenge. I want to make something:
1. Large, not a hat or toy, most likely adult size garment
2. Textured. I'm not into color work, and I have two simple projects on the needles already (garter stitch and stockinette stitch), so I need something more engaging.
3. I want to use some of my fine weight yarn, alpaca, cashmere or wool.
4. Use stash! I will find pattern for what's in my stash, not the other way around.
For those on Ravelry, feel free to look at my queue and stash and make suggestions.
