Thank you everyone for your great ideas about my Neon debacle.
I'm mulling over some options while I work on other projects. But fear not! I have not given up on the yarn or my sweater knitting craze. In fact, I just finished my entry for Andi Satturlund's Selfish Sweater KAL.
Meet Chuck! A lovely little pullover, just perfect for the variable weather we've had lately. One of the things I love about Andi's patterns is that many of them are designed to take summer dresses into other seasons. They're cropped, which makes them impractical for jeans (unless you are going to the 90s themed party I'm now hoping and praying someone throws just for this sweater), but perfect for those cute sleeveless dresses you wish you could wear all year. This is one of my favorite summer dresses leftover from my teacher days. It was a goodwill steal and has the added bonus of amazing hidden pockets!
I knit this out of Quince and Co Lark in the Honey colorway. Clearly this is my color because I have a pair of mitts that I knit last year in the same colorway in the sport weight. I just love it so much! I used almost all of six skeins to knit the small and shortened it just a bit so that it hits the narrowest part of my waist.
I love it when an outfit comes together just how I envisioned. And then the two accessory pieces appeared just when I was ready to take FO pictures (courtesy of Fandom of the Month Club and Stitch Fix). The weather warmed up just enough that I'm in complete denial that there's another cold front heading our way. As far as I'm concerned it should be 50 degree weather from here on out.
