A New Beginning

Yesterday afternoon I went upstairs to stash dive to find a new knitting project or two.  After my first project choice came up short on yarn and then dealing with a major case of indecisiveness about EVERYTHING else in the stash, I decided to go for the one project that already had both yarn and pattern paired, and the pattern is one I've knit before - Ravello.

This is my fourth Ravello and I've had the yarn stashed for this for a couple of years now.  The yarn is Loopy Ewe Solids Series (which I believe is basically discontinued) and I'm starting with Ivory, which is the color of vanilla ice cream.  The stripes will be Cherry and the lower body will be Smoke.  I cast on last night after dinner and have just made it past the short rows and started working the rounds of raglan shaping.  I plan to do the crocheted neckline edging I used on my third Ravello because I like the way that worked (thankfully, I made notes on the Ravelry project page so I know not only what I did, but what size hook I used).

Hopefully, by the time I finish this, I'll feel more inspired by my stash and finding the next project won't be as complicated.

I love Ravello! But I never finish fingering-weight sweaters. So I knit a Tea with Jam and Bread with Ravello stripes and I love it!

What a great week of weather we've had here in DFW for all the wonderful sweaters you knit. If you have left over yarn from this project that you would like to sell I am interested. I have a 98% completed Winnowing by Bristol Ivy. I ran out of Ivory but the Loopy Ewe never brought it back in that color. - Matildaknits
