What I was thinking about was how very much I like the way my Freya feels when I wear it. It is destined to become my everything sweater, my go to for every occasion, my somewhere between dressy and casual sweater. It is warm but not heavy, snuggly but not cloyingly so. Does it sound like I love it?
So how to recreate that feel, that je ne sais quoi? I bought the last of the Eco DK from the store and I don't know if it will be restocked.
I do have the unspun 6 strand Prairie Wool from Custom Woolen Mills (available at RCY right now during sweater season). I'm kind of wondering if 2 or 3 strands of this might give the same lofty yet light feel. I sense an experiment coming on. If you could do a sweater out of a couple of these wheels? Cost effective!
Anyway, that won't be tried tilll at least the weekend. No point getting my self off in another direction when I really want to see this vest knit up it will take over my every waking thought once I have it in my hands again.
Till then, I shall dream wild and crazy knitting dreams, I shall think of way to recreate a feel and I will knit on socks and simple things that take absolutely no thinking whatsoever.
