Having a creative mind can be a very dangerous thing. At any given time, there are about eleventy billion ideas swirling around in my head (most of them related to knitting). Thankfully, I'm also ridiculously lazy, and just don't have the drive to put them all into action.
But every once in a while... one idea decides it just has to brought to life, and I have no option to give in.
Shleeves. I loved the concept of the shawl with sleeves, but that particular design just doesn't work as well for those of us who are a little heavier on the top decks.
When I was up at Mom's I came across a bag of Aristocat (our single-ply, DK weight wool/alpaca/silk blend) that was purchased specifically for me to make a garment with. I was still awating the arrival of the 4mm needle I ordered for the Empire Line Cardigan, and the only other thing I had on the go was socks. The timing was perfect.
I'm almost through the yoke... and of course, now that 4mm has arrived, so Im stuck in the quandary of working on the design... or being a good girl and working to finish Empire Line... some decisions are sooo hard!
