Back when I first started knitting, I bought a fair amount of Bernat Mosaic in Medusa to make a sweater. I had the Sweaters and Accessories pattern book, and chose the top down cardigan, however after knitting the smallest size, and having most of it finished... I didn't like it. I felt the colours looked off and the ribbing looked baggy on me, nothing like the picture. Away into storage it went, where I hoped I would find some love for this nearly finished cardi.
I recently took out the sweater again, and still felt rather underwhelmed by it. I had a few balls left, so I've cast on a new sweater using the left overs - if I need to, I'll frog the old sweater as I go (however, I think I have more than enough for my latest project without unraveling it. I may use it for accessories though!).
Yesterday, I cast on February Lady Sweater, and though I was a bit uncertain about using a yarn that has a definite pattern to it, after looking at a few other projects done in various striped yarns I decided to give it a go.
That being said, I'd like to have this finished before the end of October. I don't have many autumn sweaters, so this one would be nice to have before the snow falls - perhaps for the last autumn walk through the valley.
