All those yarns are for the Venezia Pullover from the latest Interweave! (Can you tell I LOVE this issue, I have the yarn to make THREE sweaters from this issue--Two of which you've seen!)
I'm still waiting for the yellow ochre to come into stock at the Weaving Works. Here's my dilemma...
I really want to start on this sweater for my Mom. I have the cabled one made out of the Knitpicks cotton on the needles. I'm not loving working with the yarn, on that one. Should I start on the Venezia Pullover and make this one my Mom's Christmas present? Eunny said she knit it in 5 days. I'd like to get it done for my Mom's first day of work at her new job, which is mid January... Which one should I do first?
Also, I have two skeins of pure alpaca to make a scarf for my aunt to thank her for helping my Mom. Any classic, elegant scarf patterns come to mind? Check out the link above to see the yarn. It's a DK weight in a deep cranberry. The color is luminous. I was thinking something like the Irish hiking scarf, but I'd like something that's reverseable. Suggestions are more than welcome!
