Up next, or, *Eee!!* They're here!!

My KP Harmony needles! I only ordered one size (I am, how do you say, cheap and anxious because I'm the only one with a job) but I'm still excited! They're preeeetty:

What's more, the arrival of these needles allows me to start on my warm handspun sweater. I'm using this yarn and the Raglan Generator. My plan is to supplement my limited supply of handspun with deep ribbing at the waist and cuffs of the lambswool. BUT....the question is: do I knit a pullie or a cardi? I'm not certain. My plan has been to knit a split-neck at the left shoulder with the lambswool, as well as buttons up the ribbing at the waist at the right hip, but I'm wondering if such a thick sweater would be more wearable as a cardi. My concern is that the lambswool button-band up the centre might hack up the continuity of the knit.

I'm so indecisive. Any thoughts?

  1. I have a set of Harmonies on their way to me right now. Can't wait until they arrive!

    I'd go with the cardi, but that's just me. I'm more fond of cardis than pullovers.

  2. I'd say pullover because at least for me, knitting in the round goes faster.

  3. I thank you for the question, no really thanks.
    One day I will decipher this code you all talk in, PK and OLPP have been of little use in this matter.

    But I hope your new sticks bring you joy.

    Oh!! And thanks for telling me what I should be blogstalking about.

    You've just been entered into my favourites, don't worry your not the first. And I live several thousand miles away from you, cool.

    I think whichever you choose to knit will be gorgeous with that yarn!

  5. Oh those harmony needles! Pretty! I would also go with a cardi-I just love a good cardi! Hugs!
    Whoa Ed is pretty interesting. ;)
