Tanis Fibre Arts. It's a lovely Superwash wool in 215yard skeins and gorgeous colourways, and available locally at Beehive Wool. It's a little pricey, almost $20 a skein, but I'm so glad I splurged.
I've been enjoying every moment of knitting this up into the Telemark Pullover, a lovely top down toddler sweater. But I've run into a problem. I'm nearly out of yarn and I'm just coming to the bottom hem. I haven't knit the arms yet. I have three choices:
1)knit the body a little short, and finish it off as a make-shift-vest with no sleeves. (and hope I have enough yarn for this!!)
2) buy another skein of yarn, making this a $40 baby sweater, for no one in particular - ouch!
3) rip it out and start over with a different pattern. (I actually have a vest in mind that I should be able to manage with this yardage)
I'm leaning towards #3. Knitting with this yarn has been a real pleasure, so I wouldn't cry about the lost "work" because I'd get to knit with the same skein twice. I do plan to buy more of this yarn, maybe even to knit a larger item for myself, but I'm bothered by spending $40 to knit up one baby sweater, when I don't even have a recipient in mind. What would you do?
