Spinning Away

I spent some time this weekend and got the second bobbin of Mojito Love (one of Kary's Kitchen Sink Battz (tm)) singles finished. I have one more bobbin of this fiber, then I'll move on to the next fiber. I'm not sure if I'll do the commercial Merino Top next or Delia's handdyed BFL (Blue Faced Leicester - its a sheep breed). I'm leaning towards the Merino Top because by the time I get to the last fiber, I will have 6 bobbins spun and I might be running out of steam. Having colors shade in and out as I spin them might just be what I need to keep me going down the home stretch.

I've been thinking about what kind of sweater I want to make with this yarn and I'm leaning towards a cardigan. I might have a cardigan addiction, seeing as I have yarn and patterns picked out for 4 or 5 in my stash and some others on my wish list, but seeing as I have a vast T-shirt collection and I can throw a cardi on over any one of them to make it cool weather appropriate, it makes sense. Besides, I can quit anytime. Really!

The cardi addiction is a good thing. I would like to knit more of them. I think they are more practical than my shawl addiction. Still, I'll not give up the shawls. A cardi is another practically perfect knit.

i'm developing a cardi addiction too, because as you say they're easy to throw on over other shirts. pullovers are nice, but it feels like you have to have them on all day. and really, as a knitter (and spinner for you!) can you have too many sweaters? that's like having too much chocolate...
