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.
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?
