Uh - pardon me...

Excuse me whilst I drool ... :drool: I sooooo wanna make this - the link died. (http://www.). I've been drooling over it ever since I made this one (http://www.awesomeewe.com/kits/14403b.jpg). *sigh* ... one day ... :pray:



***edit - here's (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=8135666875&category=41241) a new link with a pic. Scroll down to #6, Sporty Hood.

I know - and to think, the pic that I linked is NOT a good picture of it at all. :fingerwag: You so have to see the nice pic in the book next time you drop by LYS.

Not that I can afford it now, BUT there's no harm in webindow shopping for yarns. (web + window shop = webindow shop) :mrgreen: I think Smiley's has some sub yarns I could use... so totally unfortunately though - the book is AT HOME!!! :verysad: So I don't know how many yards I'd need. How can I webindow shop without all the details? I mean really - my goodness ... :cry:

:thinking: Well - Patons Shetland Chunky is only 25% wool. I wonder how Ms. Sporty Hood would fair with acrylic?? :rollseyes: Dang webindow shopping!!! It appears I'm just as addicted to it as I am to actually knitting. :lol:

I made my son a sweater with Patons Shetland Chunky last Christmas. I knew that it would spend a great deal of time on the bedroom floor, so I wanted something easy to care for. I liked it and would use it again when I do something chunky.

Well - I couldn't help it. :oops: I started my sporty hood w/ some left over yarn from my Kyoto sweater. It's "Dark Sage" and is turning out quite nicely. It's also not dye lotted, so I can get more yarn as I need and can afford it. :happydance: I put the back on the needles yesterday and have about 6" done!

And I must say that I stand corrected. Last week, I posted that I've not met a chart that I liked. Well - the Sporty Hood chart is quite fantabulous. :mrgreen: The pattern is broken down into written instructions AND charts. I found myself wishing the written parts were just incorporated into the chart!! :shock: :lol:

This sweater will probably top all of the other knitting projects that I've done, so I kinda felt bad about having to use the acrylic for such a major project. But ... well ... *sigh* ... hey ... at least I'm still knitting. :thumbsup:
