With the help of my yarny friends I got some buttons and it is all set for the trip to Deutschland.
It feels good to knit down my stash somewhat.
When I first started knitting about 7 years ago, I made the brazen comment that no one should have a stash.
"How dumb to amass more yarn than you could knit up in one project."
I am using some more stash.
About 5 years ago, the Yarnery discontinued the older put-up of the Soft Shetland from Jamieson, and I bought 15 skeins as they were considerably discounted.
I have been half-heartedly knitting a Kristin Nicholas sweater with it since then, but the pattern was pretty complicated and I didn't then nor do I now have the patience or attention span to finish it.
It is a shame, because I do love the Nicholas sweater, but I will also love the Rogue.
I am cardiganizing it, there is a link on the Girl From Auntie's website, and I am thoroughly enjoying the knitting.
These Girl From Auntie patterns are great because they are mostly stockinette with a few spectacular cable patterns thrown in for interest.
Such fun, and they look complicated and impressive...
Have a beautiful Monday,
The weather here should be perfect for outdoor activity.
Talk to you soon,
