My dream sweater…

This sweater has been on my mind for about 2 years and I am starting to get the ich to do it. There are factors that I need to consider. Factor 1, it has to be in one of my yarns and hand dyed. Factor 2, I have to decide if I want to use 100% wool or a Donegal Tweed. I will need to phone a friend…LOL, you know who you are.  🙂

My dream sweater is the Na Craga by Alice Starmore from her fabulous book Aran Knitting. The St. Brigid comes in a close second. This would be a HUGE undertaking, but I think that I am up for the challenge. I figure, why not!

I have to admit that I am in a knitting funk. Nothing that I have on the needles is making me happy. It might have to do with the fact that my hand/wrist is aching and knitting is just painful. Thankfully, I see the specialist on Tuesday.

I have been spending way too much time on Twitter and Ravelry torturing myself and drooling over so many fabulous patterns and then getting bummed out and sitting on the couch and watching TV….bad TV at that. I even forgot to blog. I didn’t think you wanted to hear my knitting woes….

The big sweater project is on hold for a bit. I would love to get some of these knitted items off the needles but the desire is less than zero. I will try to pull myself up by the boot straps.

Happy Friday…
