How many sweaters is enough?

I had decided that I had enough sweaters for this season and I wasn’t going to knit anymore….

I love how this ball kind of looks like a Kina 😀

Then while I was at FibreTron I admired the sweaters that looked like they weighed nothing and looked so feminine. I had to make one as soon as possible!

Before I commit my yarn budget to some yummy alpaca I thought I’d try a floaty thing with some stash yarn first. I found the Sweater No. 1 pattern by My Favourite Things (some really gorgeous patterns with quite a few in English), and it’s coming along really fast!

Then the other day PoisonGrrls (this link goes to Ravelry) who is one of my fav designers, launched a new sweater pattern called the Joanie Boatneck. It’s a stripey fitted raglan with cable detail on the raglan increase and the side seams.

They are running a KAL for this one and the knitting bit starts next week.

And. I’m doing it.

Potential colour picks for the stripes.

I guess the answer to the question “How many sweaters is enough?”, is that I obviously don’t feel like I have enough yet!
