starting a new sweater @ 04:47 am

Current Mood: accomplished accomplished

My old favorite cardigan is starting to fray at the cuffs, so I decided it was high time to knit myself another one. I found a big batch of rainbow yarn first on ebay, for under $1 a skein including shipping. Couldn't find a pattern I liked big enough to fit, so I decided to modify this one instead. I've made up little things like tarot deck bags from scratch before, but this is the first time I've made so many changes to something this complex. It's already designed in inches rather than just X number of stitches, so it can be made from any kind of yarn & needles you want. I measured a windbreaker that fits me and made notes on the assembly diagram to figure out how to change it. Image hosted by Photobucket.com Hopefully I've got this figured out right the first time, but if not, I'll frog it and try it again.

That's a pretty cardigan. :) Hope it turns out well for you! How long do you think it'll take to knit?

Hard to tell, depends on how much time I get to work on it, and whether I get bored and switch back to my afghan project for a while. Probably a month or two.

Cool! Good luck with that. I've not ventured to think about sweaters too much. I'm still working on my armwarmers. :)
