Starting Another Sweater

MasonM's picture

I gathered together some various yarns from my stash so I could make another sweater. I had planned on ordering yarn specifically for the project but with the current economy freight is down and I am just not making any money. So it's going to be just whatever I have in my stash for it.

I am doing it top down, without a pattern, and am making this one a turtleneck. I am working on the neck now and am thinking it should be about 6 inches long. Does that sound about right to you guys?

I hear you about the economic situation; if things slow down much more for my employer I may have to cook and eat my cats (and the thought of eating pussy really doesn't thrill me). Well, I guess we just have to keep the faith. As for your stash buster sweater, this is a good opportunity to let your creativity flow. I look forward to seeing pictures!

Veni, vidi, kniti.
