The Next Sweater

The Holiday Festival was a great sucess, and I’m feeling like I’m ready to embark on a new sweater project.

No firm plan on the pattern yet, but the yarn is coming together nicely!

It’s 100% 2015 Chone, spun on Sigrid (new wheel) and chain plied on my lateral treadle wheel.

My little sample swatch knit up to 4.5 stitches and 6 rows to the inch on size 5 needles, so I guess that’s roughly worsted weight.

It’s wonderfully squishy and fuzzy (but still has the occasional reminder of what a messy eater Chone is).

I’ve got two skeins all finished and one ready to ply.

Guess I’ll just keep spinning until I figure out what I’m making it into.
My first thought was a simple roll-neck top-down raglan. So comfy and casual and cozy.
But perhaps that might be too toasty for all but the coldest weather.

So then I started thinking about a vest. I’ve got a couple of nice vest patterns “favorited” on Ravelry.

Wood Hollow Vest

And vests are so useful for layering fall through spring.

But then I’ve always wanted to make a Burr, too. Love those Brooklyn Tweed patterns!

What do you think that this yarn wants to be?
