Starting to cast on a few days late, I couldn’t miss participating in the Selfish Sweater KAL. Just before Christmas I bought this red Cascade 220 to make a Chuck sweater and some days later, Andi announced this KAL, so the timing couldn’t be better. I wanted to make Chuck for a while and it’s finally happening! I love the retro look, but I’m slightly worried about the neckline. It’s flattering indeed but I’m not sure if I will get easily cold and if that will stop me from wearing it.
This sweater fits in what I’ve planned for 2015: making garments that fit my actual style, lightly inspired by the 40s and 50s decades. I’m so happy about it!
I also purchased wool for a teal Marion cardigan and a hot pink Hetty. I started Hetty last year but I felt so meh about the yarn and color that I quit knitting it and it’s lost somewhere in one of my drawers. I dislike the yarn so much that I don’t know what to make with it. Hopefully this Cascade 220 will result in a beautiful cardigan that will make me forget the unfinished one.
