Help a knitter out! January 8, 2008

Well, I could say how buys I’ve been and all that, but blah.  I say I refuse to feel guilty that I’m not a great blogger. 😀  So, that being said…here’s my dilemma:

I’ve posted this a few places and want some honest opinions…here’s a bit of background: I started a sweater for myself using Sock yarn and 2.75mm getting 7.5spi (yes I know some people knit socks at this gauge). Now, as I am a size 18w, I figured this would take some 3+ years to complete, which was fine, as I am in school and need extra-boring-able-to-read knitting. Plus I’ve always wanted one. I also live in the desert and thick sweaters aren’t needed much (they make lovely coats though).
So, I started the “Never Ending Sweater” on Oct 18 (or there about). Here it is today:

Now if this was your sweater, which of the following would  you do:

A. Continue knitting, make it the best sweatshirt/sweater throw around in the world.  It’s sock yarn!  Love how socks feel, imagine a sweatshirt/sweater!

B.  Make it 3/4 sleeves.  Sock yarn is fun and all, but 3/4 sleeves will suffice, you always run hot anyway.

C.  Stop knitting NOW!!!  You live in the DESERT and you are always HOT how many sweaters should you have?  Seriously, quit while you are ahead.

I’m itching to start a new cardigan (top down, v-neck, set in sleeve) using absolutely beautifully dyed just for me yarn again in fingering weight from http://www.littleturtleknits.com set off w/black. And school starts in a mere 14days, so if I’m going to start something new, I need to hurry… 😀

Please help me in my dilemma!  Shout out in the comments. 😀 😀
