End May/June Plans

I made great progress during the last week of May. I finished my Cassidy Cardigan and love it except for the excessively long sleeves. Then, I finished my Buttercup top out of Cotton Fleece from a recycled project. I knit the original during the winter Olympics in 2002. Then ripped it out and reknit it into a wrap cardigan last spring. It was too baggy, so I used the leftovers to start Buttercup and then had to rip out some of the wrap sweater to finish. The wrap sweater was then frogged back to the underarms and is being reknit (for the second time) to become the third (or is it fourth?) version of the sweater. On the upside, this yarn holds up to lots of reknitting. I'm hoping it will be a quick FO and #9 in my quest for 12 sweaters in 2009.

#10 will be a sweater out of some lovely Plucky Knitter 50% silk/50% merino fingering weight yarn in a Peacock color. Yum. It is nice to balance out the fine yarns with thicker yarns, and vice versa. I'll probably do #11 in either my Sundara FSM in a new shade from the Limited Edition color Music of the Night or my sock yarn LE Second Look. I'll be getting some Black over Violet soon too, which may not wait its turn in the queue.
