If I'm feeling inspired I may modify the sweater. But if not I will at least have a usable finished object in the end rather then a ball of rewound yarn.

After floundering, trying to find the right pattern for the right yarn and my level of interest. I gave up. I decided perhaps it was time to return to basics. So I cast on a Knitring Pure and Aimple summer cardigan out of some yarn that has been hibernating in my stash for years.

I really like the pattern BRICKLESS. I like the look it had with my Charleston yarn from Interlacements. However, it was simply going to be to long to, be wearable. I didn't want to use just part of the skein. When you have 795 yards of unbroken yarn it just seems like to shouldn't be cut. So it had been frogged again. I will make Brickess out of different yarn and the charleston will have to wait for another day.

After knitting with Interlacements Charleston for 5 inches of the Abigal sweater pattern it was very clear that this yarn did not want to be a sweater. The yarn is dry clean only, so now baby things, no kid things, no lap robes. Nothing that might be high maintenance. And only a project that used all of the yarn.
Luckily today when I was wandering on Ravelry I stumbled across the BRICKLESS shawl pattern by Martina Behm. And the yarn screamed that is what I want to be when I grow up. So with the miracle of Internet shopping I purchased the pattern. It was my Masters Golf project. The yarn and I are both very happy with the results.

I got a hair cut today. Told the stylist that I was feeling frumpy. She gave me a stacked cut. Sounded like a good idea....at the end after blowing and round brushing..and a little more clipping....she said if I wasn't happy with it call and come back in.......something seems a little wonky with my hair.
I will give it the weekend. But think I need to go back....not sure how it can be fixed. Hard to glue hair back on...
