Up Next...

I still haven't started the second sleeve of my Ravello (yesterday ended up being crazier than most Mondays around here), but I've been mentally planning my next sweater.

When the new year started, a new Yarnathon at ESK started as well (I'm on Team Narwool!) along with a new batch of KAL's.  The first quarter KAL is to knit something from Tin Can Knits.  They have a pretty big range of types of projects and are one of the few designers who pretty consistently design sweaters from infant sizes all the way to the larger adult sizes.  (Family sweaters anyone?)  I've been looking at their designs since the first of the year, but for the most part, they're just not my style, or I don't need whatever it is.  They're nice designs, but many of them are heavier than I need and there's not a lot of shaping to them, in general.  I had just about decided to skip this KAL (you don't have to do all or even any of them to participate in the Yarnathon), but then I took another look at the Raindrops pullover.  It's fingering weight and has an open neckline.  Then I realized I had some Madelinetosh Sock in four colors I could use together in a fade.  So, once I prewash and dry my skeins (because, Madelinetosh), then I'll be ready to cast on.
Cove, Jasper, Worn Denim, and Ink
From left to right, my colors are Cove (discontinued), Jasper (I think it's discontinued), Worn Denim (discontinued), and Ink (please, don't ever discontinue it, ever).  So it will be an homage to discontinued Madelinetosh colors, plus Ink.  I haven't figured out all the logistics of the fade and I'm going to double check sizing numbers against the Ravello pattern (because I know it fits the way I like my pullovers to fit), but I'm pretty sure it will work.

First I have to finish my second sleeve for this first Ravello of the year though!
