For months now I’ve had an intense desire for a brown cardigan. Why? Well, maybe because my little black cardigan gets so much use, and I just want it to have a buddy. Perhaps a brown cardigan seems like it should be wardrobe basic, and my wardrobe is just incomplete until I have one. Or it could just be because I got a pair of super cute brown flats a couple months ago and I just want to expand the options of what I can wear with them.
Regardless of the exact reason, I’ve decided that my next big project should be said cardigan. After months of looking at patterns and dreaming up the features of the perfect cardigan (seriously I put a lot of thought into this) I’ve deiced upon Chicknits’ Ariann. I’ve even picked out my yarn, Knitpicks Andean Silk in Chocolate.
But I’m not going to start it quite yet. I bought all this yarn in October and I’ve decided that I simply must do something with some of it before I can start a new project. The red yarn is Malabrigo in Vermilion to make Foliage and the gray Lamb’s Pride is to make a new pair of Fuzzy Feet. Sadly, my old pair had a giant hole in the toe. I over felted them so they wore a bit quicker than they should have. The pale yarn is Malabrigo lace weight in Bluesurf. I’m not exactly sure what I’m going to do with that so I won’t worry about it quite yet. But I want to make at least one of the above projects before I continue my brown cardigan quest.
