It’s the most exciting part of a new project (other than starting it, finishing it, or working on it, I suppose)! It’s time to plan!
After hearing some very smart readers’ feedback, I have decided that my Papaya yarn will become… *drumroll please*… A sweater!
A cheerful orange sweater to perk me up in the middle of winter (or if I’m fast, a cheerful orange sweater that will allow me to hide among the changing leaves this fall).
Now all that I have to do (apart from knitting the dang thing), is decide what kind of sweater I want to make.
I like this flowy cardigan, with its interesting, circular shape. I love the drape and the tiny eyelet details.

Speaking of little details, I love this slouchy pullover. It’s so simple, but the split hem and the little construction details at the shoulders and sides are to die for! (Seriously- go look at the other pictures.)
Marklee by Elizabeth DohertyAnd I love this simple slouchy cardigan, too. It’s knit at a large-ish gauge, so it would be light enough for layering. Plus, it’s knit top-down, so I will be able to use every inch of my precious Papaya yarn.
