Tweed Girl

IMG_1304

Some yarn came in the mail last week, just before Thanksgiving. It was that stuff I ordered on sale from Little Knits.

I am shamelessly addicted to tweed. I can think of five sweater quantities of it in my stash. I am so precious about tweed that it is nearly impossible to figure out what to knit with it. Do you have this sort of paralyzation? I have surfed ravelry patterns for hours trying to pick a pattern for the burgundy sweater and now for this beautiful blue Queensland Kathmandu. I have no idea what to make with it and I don't have a single sweater or cadigan on the needles.

Somebody make a suggestion. I've already made a Central Park Hoodie, and don't really care to make another. I have been thinking of doing the February Lady, but I'm not so sure that it's my style.

I have some requirements:

  1. It needs to be a cardigan. It's too warm where I live for full-time pullovers.
  2. It needs to be knit on size 8 or 9 needles. My gauge is super tight.
  3. The sweater needs to accommodate my sizeable bust.
  4. Said project should not require a zipper.

Got any good ideas? Here's the yarn in question:

I'm not sure a FLS is your style either. What about Shapely Boyfriend Cardigan? It looks to be easily adjusted if you're worried about the bewbs. Or the Cerulean Cardigan might be a good one...

I was just fantasizing about a tweed cardigan yesterday. I'm in love with Collins by Thea Coleman: www.ravelry.com/.../collins

That is a gorgeous cabled cardi, V. I'm going to add it to my favorites. And Renee Anne, I really really really like that Cerulean Cardi. So far you guys are great with the recommendations . Keep them coming!
