This one will be for my daughter. It is a pretty simple sweater done in a bulky weight...I am using Bernat Galaxy (Super Bulky) in EARTH so we will see how it turns out. :???:
I don't know how well I like working with this yarn...but I haven't had to frog :frog: it yet......:roflhard:

Can't wait to see your FO. Your other sweaters have been fantastic.
I just noticed you live in Boise. I live over on the East side of town near Reserve and the foothills. :)

Hey y'all, I grew up in Nampa and lived in Boise for a while after 2 years of college in another state. That's been a long long time ago, though I still go through there to visit relatives in the area. I'm planning on going to my HS reunion this summer (if there is one); maybe we can get together and knit a bit....

Wow, small world! I graduated from Nampa High School and my parents and sister still live there. :)
ETA--sorry I missed the part about getting together. That would be awesome. Let me know and I will PM you my phone number.

Well, I ran in to a few problems..:waah: and had to :frog: the project. When working with "bumpy" yarn, watch out for the "legs" of the stitch turning over on the needle. I must have picked up some stitches along the way cause it went from 72 to 76. :??
Anyway, same project but in Lion Brand Woolspun color Granite.
Much easier yarn to work with. :)

Bummer that you had to frog! :( If it happens again, you might see if you could just decrease back to the correct number of stitches. If it doesn't make the knitting look wonky, that's what I'd do. :)

I'm sorry you had to frog but can't wait to see it in the new yarn! :happydance:
