The pattern is called Narragansett, by Thea Colman. Hers is really pretty!
We were in Adelaide for about two weeks over Christmas (such a good holiday!) I had planned on taking my knitting, but I was so frustrated with this almost-complete sweater that I put knitting out of my mind for two weeks. I can't seem to make anything that I actually like!
So what should I do with this?
The first problem is that it's a bit loose around the top, then goes tight over my rotund middle bit. (Too many McDonald's cheeseburgers.) What with those horizontal color stripes, it is NOT a flattering look! So do I forget about the pretty Narragansett pattern and try to knit a looser fitting sweater? The pattern doesn't really work with this wool anyway.
Do I turn it into a cardigan?
Do I make several hats, scarves, and cowls out of it (there are five balls of wool!)
Do I finish it and gift it to someone I don't like very much?
Or do I rip it up and donate the wool to the Salvation Army so I never have to think about it again?
