Knitter's Remorse

What was I thinking, starting this sweater, with such inferior yarn and only 10 days left in the green month of May (per project spectrum). I wanted to revel in this green month and use up my green stash. I am making a basic v-neck cardigan out of a yarn that I bought a year ago just after I started my knitting life. It was a very inexpensive yarn and now I know why. It's like knitting with burlap. Yes...I am knitting a green burlap sweater. I am tempted to go into the woods and hack off some bark for buttons that would be so very appropriate for this burlap sweater. I don't think I would have committed a sweater to this yarn if it were not for the green month of May 2006 and this mistake of a purchase. I'm knitting it until May 31 and then it gets set aside to make way for the blue month of June and Moriah's Wildflower Cardigan.

Oh no! Sorry that the yarn is such a pill! You know, there is no pressure to finish it... I wouldn't blame you for holding out for June with that lovely Lamb's Pride to look forward to! :)

Who can I unload my bag of the same stuff on? ;-)

Thanks for the lovely note you left on my blog. I am so glad you like your socks.

I actually tried to buy some of that yarn a little while ago to make a pair for myself but it wasn't available. I need to check back.
