Sunday Knitting

I was thinking about my next project recently, and I realized that I don't have enough purple sweaters. So I started another one.

Actually, back when I finished my Cozy V-Neck Pullover I thought I'd like another one in purple. Then a few weeks ago when I went to Windsor Button for their closing sale I wanted to have a plan based on sweaters I plan to make soon, but couldn't decide on one. Then I remembered my idea for a purple Cozy V-Neck. My black one is pretty heavy, so I went with a slightly lighter yarn.

Though I made the first one four and a half years ago and with different yarn, I went ahead and cast on with the same size needles I used then, without making a gauge swatch. Because that totally makes sense!

The resulting fabric so far is pretty airy but I'm not sure yet if it's TOO much so. I'm sure you can look forward to some posts about ripping back, checking gauge, and restarting. On the bright side, this pattern goes along very quickly so no matter how many problems I have with it, the sweater should still be done before fall.
