Thanks for all great comments and words of encouragement on my sweater jacket inspiration post. I think I’ll hold off for now and sign up for a baby sweater class at my local yarn shop. But I still need a project! I’m traveling a lot in the next three weeks and want something with me to work on. Maybe I should rephrase that? I need something that will stop me from having an anxiety attack on my 5 hour flight to Vegas in two weeks. I hate flying!
So what about an afghan? I could do something easy…I found this Garter Stitch version knit in three panels in Comfort Knitting & Crochet Afghans. I love it! Reminds me of Breton fisherman sweaters and ticking stripe—two of my favorite things. Garter stitch is terribly easy which probably means bor-ing. But I want a project that I won’t get stuck 1/2 way through and have to ask another knitter on my flight for help. What do you think? Is easy always boring? Or you can’t go wrong with stripes!
