I’m a big fat liar.
So, last week, I wrote a whole big thing about how I am a process knitter only. I said I would never knit something simply because I want the finished project.
Well, I shouldn’t have been so insistent about that. Because this weekend, I went looking through my Ravelry Queue, trying to find something to do between work assignments. And I re-discovered a sweater I has been living, half-forgotten in the back of my brain for the two years since I put it in my queue.
I first saw this sweater at a knitting convention in 2015. A group of impossibly cool ladies were all wearing the same sweater (this one) in different colors, and each had paired it with a unique vintage skirt. I knew immediately I needed a Chuck of my own.
I have a bunch of high-waisted dresses that I love wearing in the summer, but none of my sweaters really go with them, so I end up having to wait to wear my dresses until the weather gets really warm (June or July in Seattle).
I love the shape of this sweater- the length is perfect with a skirt or dress, and the wide ribbed hem is super flattering. I love how the sweater is fitted through the waist, and that cable is to die for!
I also happen to have a bunch of dark-chocolate yarn just waiting in my stash for a project like this. (It was on sale years and years ago, and I miscalculated how much I would need for a different pullover by a couple skeins, so it’s just been sitting in my closet, waiting for me to figure out what to do with it.)
Have you ever made a project solely because you wanted (needed) the finished object?
And, don’t forget! You’ve got until Friday to be entered into the Flourish giveaway!
