Obsession...

I think I have a problem. I can't stop knitting. I'm completely consumed by this sweater, and it's progressing at record speed. I just want to finish it, to see if it turns out the same as the image I have in my head. At the same time, I never want to finish it, because the yarn is so heavenly!

This is not the real color of the yarn. The weather just doesn't want to cooperate with me today, and it insists on being gloomy. The picture in my previous post is closer to the actual color.

So what will this sweater look like when it "grows up". Well, the cable runs up the right front and back side. I'm making it fairly long, almost like a tunic. I'm decreasing at the fake side seam from the waist up underneath the bust, and then increasing to make it form fitted. It will have a large turtle neck with some kind of cable detail, and the sleeves will be slightly flared.

I'm so excited!
