Love the pictures. I guess I'm surprised that so many sweaters leave your employment.

Such a dangerous topic! :-) I, too, have knit many, many sweaters that I never wear. I'm getting better, though, at knowing my own style and what I'll actually be happy with in the end. Lovely choices, Margene.

You be a smart woman. I be a tad slower. I also just really need to knit that sweater in the first place. The last sweater I knit was for my Mum and she's been gone 4 years. And, you do look so good in red!

I knew this would be a dangerous topic!

Your Sprossling is beautiful! After hearing you sing the praises of Beaverslide for many years, I succumbed to it this spring. I have not knit with it yet, but I did send some to a friend who apparently has now gone on a Beaverslide binge. I have a lovely red to do some socks in and some for a sweater. Once the move ends, I may have to dig it out.

Making another Sprossling sounds like a good plan - what color this time? Blue? :)

I have Acorn Trail on the needles right now too, also Custom Fit. Love, love, love the look of it! Wonderful list!

I always end up with cardigans--I love their versatility. I'm not sure I can remember the last time I even wore a pullover!

Of the yarns you listed, the only one I've used is Elsebeth Lavold's Silky Wool, and while I love it, I've had terrible luck with it for sweaters. Every single time, no matter how I've tried to adjust, the darn thing has grown upon washing and ended up BIG! (There's a reason I converted most of the rest of my stash of that lovely yarn into a truly lovely afghan.)

Very informative and interesting post, Margene! I love that Sprossling sweater, and I love it on you. WOW! I must say that I never knitted a sweater that fit that and was that flattering. I may have to put that at the top of my queue. Great post.

Meant to post to this yesterday, but i got distracted of course - i have knitted some sweaters that are my favorite - i prefer ones that are top down as i can try them on. I recently finished a sweater that i had to put together - and i really enjoyed the process and the finished object . As for my favorite yarns - i am a Rowan girl, through and through - although Kim's yarns from the woolen rabbit are my go to for shawls

great post margene

Wonderful post Margene! And I have a few that have never seen the light of day as well. I guess it's all part of the learning process! And the Beaverslide...looks like I need to go there too. ;-)
