New Project!

After coming down from the Rogue high this weekend, I felt a knitting void. The weather’s warming up, I’m starting a new job in a few weeks, and I want to knit up something a little girly and frilly. Just a little.
I stopped by Rosie’s on Sunday. I had a 20% off coupon that I’ve been itching to use since January.
I looked at a bunch of different yarns – Tahki Cotton Classic, Rowan Summer Tweed, Jo Sharp Soho Summer. All very pretty. But I finally decided on Rowan Calmer in 3 shades of pink:

I just love this yarn!

It’s so yummy…a bit of drape, wonderful hand. But I still wasn’t sure about a pattern. I’ve been wanting to try a top down raglan. I like the idea of being able to try it on as I go. But I still wanted a bit of girly to the sweater. So, I added in some eyelets along the raglans. After about 6 different swatches I finally decided on a simple double eyelet every other row.

I may do an eyelet edging along the sleeves or bodice bottom. I chose a V neck because I like that neckline on me better. I’m planning to do the bright pink at the top of the sweater, the red at the bottom, with a couple of stripes somewhere in the middle.
