It took a little while, but I finally found the sweater I'm going to knit with that Jo Sharp Aran Tweed in the Diminishing Rib Debacle. The mistake I had been making was looking for another cardigan, when I'm just not ready for another cardigan. A pullover yes, cardi no. I had been surfing through Ravelry looking for another cardigan, but nothing felt right and things that I liked I didn't actually feel like knitting. I wanted something simple and endlessly wearable that I could still wear in thirty years and look timeless.
I was flipping through last falls Interweave Knits when I found this little gem by Kate Gagnon Osborn:
The Flanders Bay Pullover. Yes, I know it's all colorwork, but I'm not going to do the colorwork, I'm just going to do a solid color scoop neck pullover. I might change the sleeves to make them 3/4 sleeves, but overall I like the simplicity. You have to have simple shapes with colorwork, but I think the tweed yarn I want to use is vibrant enough to work on its own.
What do you think? Am I setting myself up for heartbreak again?
