Some Projects

that I think I'll like, don't always turn out that way, sometimes they even need to be ripped out and made into a different project.  

This book and yarn were purchased when I was out shopping with my sister-in-law.  She's making the same sweater, in the same yarn, just a different color, and although I haven't seen it since she had about this much done, she's probably got the back and at least one side of the front finished by now, if not more!  

Mine, well mine has been ripped out, as I never fell in love with the texture of the fabric - it looked great in the picture, but seemed too spiky and I wanted soft!  I'd been trying to spin yarn for a sweater that is in one of the Spin-Off magazine issues, and have started the sleeve, but think it's too large, and can't measure the gauge until I knit a bit more.  I do love this sweater pattern, but may change the ribbing if I have to try a different size, and will share a picture as soon as I take one:-)

I struggle with liking the sweaters I turn out-they very often get ripped out, too.
