A Former Sweater

DSC03492
This past weekend this yarn was a sweater. It was an oversized sweater that didn't fit well and I've been planning to take it apart and ravel it for a while. The yarn is from Beaverslide Dry Goods and I think the color may have been Jersey Cream - I purchased it a long time ago. It's an aran weight yarn and the sweater that it used to be was knit at 4 stitches per inch.

I'm loosely thinking about making it into a top down, raglan, V-Neck, cardigan, but since it's going to be a while before I get to it, I'm not fully committed to that idea yet.

As much as I enjoy knitting, getting to frog an entire sweater is pretty fun too!

Wow! You are brave to frog an entire sweater. And smart too! I just frogged a sock and almost couldn't do it. But, what a waste to have gorgeous yarn knit into something we don't want. You are an inspiration!

I have been reading a lot of blogs where they frog clothes bought at second hand stores. I like the idea, so I'm going shopping next week. What a wonderful way to get new yarns.

You have encouraged me to go forth and frog a sweater I started and know I will not wear - so frog I will go because I want to use the yarn to make Talia Vest by Knitty
Thanks Melanie
