Just a little Wicked.
Since spring is almost here, now would be a really good time to cast on for a worsted wool sweater. Right? Oh c'mon. It is not like it's just any sweater. I mean, it's Wicked. Who can resist its short sleeves, cabled neckline, or pocket? Oh, the pocket!
I bought this pattern a couple of months ago, but it took me a while to decide on yarn. Recently I remembered I had a skein of Manos, namely in Flame 115, in my stash. I thought "Why not just swatch it up? What harm could that do?" So the swatch was knat and that was that. Who cares if I had to order 4 more skeins of the yarn to actually knit the sweater. I still get to use the one skein from my reserve which means it totally counts as stash busting. (I am in so much denial. It's sad really.)
Maybe if I knit it really fast, I can wear it before it gets warm. Yeah, that will work! See? I 'm not crazy, just a little wicked.
