Yeah, I think I might be a little crazy. After thinking about fade sweaters recently, I was idly going through my stash to think of other yarns that might make good sweaters. And it hit me that I have a large quantity of yarns that all go together beautifully:
Now, maybe you’re thinking, Hm, I think I’ve seen that combination of yarn before! You have! This is the yarn for my Mermaid Shawl, which has been on my needles since September 19.
And that’s pretty much where I still am. I’m on row 18 of the first color. That’s slow progress for me. I worked on it last weekend and only managed about three rows. I’m not sure I like enormous shawls that start at the outer edge. Each of these rows takes an eternity, and clearly I’m not loving this project or else I’d be itching to work on it.
What if…I frogged it?
Eek! Scary! This mermaid shawl idea has been in my head for ages, but…what if it was a Mermaid Cardigan instead? I think I’d wear it more often, and it would be the same gorgeous fade of colors. I’m thinking something like Gelato, though mine would have to be a little shorter, but I suppose I could find any cardigan pattern I like and make it a fade.
Tell me: Should I frog? And if so, what’s your favorite fingering-weight cardigan pattern?
I vote frog it. It would be a beautiful sweater, and a fingering weight cardigan is great even in heavy AC in the summer.
I vote frog! Those are great colors and they’ll be a wonderful cardigan:)
Frog! Life is too short to work on things that don’t make you happy
Yep, frog it. I’m working on Hitofude cardigan right now and loving it!
Oh heck, that’s gorgeous!! Going in my queue now!
If you don’t see yourself picking up the pattern again or feeling inspired when you, then yep, agreed you should frog!
I’m feeling the same way now!
If you’re not feeling it go for it
