Yesterday I started my first spring knitting project:
This is Kim Hargreaves' design Ghost, from her Calmer Collection book. A nice, longish, slouchy belted cardigan. Perfect for early spring.
I had originally started another Kim Hargreaves design with this yarn - Audrey - but after I got half way up the back I decided I just wasn't crazy about it. It's a very pretty sweater, but I really don't like the feeling of clingy knits.
When I reorganized my knitting stash about a week ago, I discovered a whole bag of Calmer in Carnation (pink) that I'd forgotten about, because I put it in a place where I don't usually keep yarn. So instead of the 15 balls I thought I had, I actually have 25! I honestly don't remember buying so many bags of it, but there was a deal from Jannette's last year that obviously was too good to pass up! I remember it being $20 a bag - a steal for a yarn that generally retails for $14 a ball!
Has anyone else started on spring knitting? My list for spring is kind of long, so I thought I'd better get going!
*Karanfil is Turkish for carnation.
