Opinions, please!

Posted on

I am trying to use my stash yarn up before I buy one more skein of yarn!  I have 3 huge hanks of beautiful Blue Moon Woobu yarn to use.  Since I have not knit a sweater or cardigan in a while, I thought that it would be the perfect project. I need so me help with my pattern choice and would love your opinions! Acorns by Carole Sunday. Akoya by Carol Feller.           Amy Christopher's Acer.       Vionnet by Katya Wilsher. Dark & Stormy by Thea Colman.       I am also open to new ideas!  So if you have a pattern you love - please leave me your suggestion! I am swatched and ready to go!

    I vote for either the Akoya or the Vionnet those are beautiful!

  • Sheila: September 26, 2016

    I cast my vote for Vionnet…I’m sure it will be beautiful whatever you choose

  • Merrill Williamson: September 26, 2016

    Katie, I really like Acer. I think the yarn would show great stitch definition.

    On another subject, where did you get the “spindle”, i.e. the device that’s holding your cake of yarn? I’ve never seen one before. Did someone make it for you?

    I like Dark and Stormy a lot, but I think Minna’s idea has some merit. That is something you have not done and would keep you busy for awhile!!

  • melinda: September 26, 2016

    I have another suggestion, how about this one?? I love it, but a little out of my comfort zone right now.

    I vote for Acorns…agree with Betsy.

  • Colleen: September 26, 2016

    Love Vionnet or the one Melinda posted.

  • Betsy: September 26, 2016

    Acorns is my favorite- it’s such an airy design, it would look good in spring and summer, too, for a chilly evening. I like the versatility. They’re all pretty, though.

    Merrill,
    My sister Colleen purchased this at the Yarn Seller in York, Maine and gave this to me last year. It is the perfect way to keep your yarn from running away! Pam at Knitting Criations in Somers also carries a similar spindle :)

  • jill: September 26, 2016

    Looks like I’m the odd one, but I love Akoya. That’s my vote for sure!

  • Karen: September 26, 2016

    Love Vionnet and Dark and Stormy which by the way is the name of a drink with a dark beer and rum I think???

  • Michelle: September 26, 2016

    I like the 3rd one down. The titles aren’t lining up well. I think it is Dark & Stormy. But Vionnet is stunning as well!

  • Trish: September 26, 2016

    I like Dark and Stormy :)

  • Katie Zahner: September 26, 2016

    Yes, I do wash and block swatches – just not in that photo :)
    (sometimes I cheat and steam iron – I admit it!)

  • melinda: September 26, 2016

    You are odd like me I really liked that one too :)

  • adriana: September 26, 2016

    love the dark & stormy, although I may just be in that find warm and cozy sweaters mood/phase. :-) The vionnet is also gorgeous.

  • Katie: September 26, 2016

    I think the Dark and Stormy would look fantastic in the yarn.

    Speaking of swatches, do you wash and block your swatches?

  • Jess: September 26, 2016

    Dark & Stormy = first choice, Akoya = second choice

  • Donna: September 26, 2016

    They are all lovely but look pretty difficult to me. I would go with the Vionett.

  • Merrill Williamson: September 26, 2016

    Katie,
    Thanks for the information. I am going to call them and see if they’ll ship me one! (I live in Oklahoma and haven’t seen anything like it!) I have a yarn bell, but that requires you to knit at home. I’d love something I could take with me!
