This is some scratchy but warm Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Bulky knit into a top down raglan cardigan. I made it more than a year ago in a knitting class before I understood the importance of tension and good yarn choice for sweaters. There is absolutely no drape. The sleeves are so stiff from my really tight knitting. It itches. Not flattering at all and, as you can probably guess, it has never been worn.

This sweater will be ripped out. I have never done it before. I have never frogged a completely finished project and I am kind of sad about it. This was, technocaly(sp?), my first sweater. So, a little memorial for it before it becomes a pile of kinky yarn...

top down raglan

This should be two or three skeins of yarn in here. I am sure there is something better for it. It would make a lovely cabled purse. Kind of like this one (ravelry link).

Yup, that is what it shall be.


  1. yeah I hear you on learning what yarns are best for what projects. I never knew there was anything other then red heart for years.

    Sometimes knowledge is a bad thing

  2. I can't wait to see the purse. I think you'll like it much better to take it out!

    PS My package came today! Thank you so so much!

  3. The power of suggestion: now I itch *scratch scratch scratch*. I told Jadielady that Bea was winning. Lucky Bea! ;) And what are you waiting for, get to watchin the rest of Firefly. You won't earn your imaginery Browncoat just knitting!!!


Thanks for taking the time to comment! :)
