I looked at patterns. I admired a great deal of yarn. In the end I held off buying the yarn and bought two Berocco booklets, no. 288 and no 298. I'm not the type to spend $9.50 per skein, unless it's something very special. I decided to look in my stash to see if there is anything I could use to make Reid in place of the 9 skeins of Blackstone Tweed called for by the pattern.
I have 9 skeins of Fibra Natura Heaven purchased at Mouline this summer. Hmmm. There might not be enough yarn considering the gauge is smaller than the Blackstone tweed. Tempting though...I could end up with a worse problem than I'm having with the Noro. Must dig deeper into the stash.
In my typically disciplined way (ha ha), I re-started the Swing Jacket after returning from the LYS and have gotten half way up one front. When I finish the last repeat on the GS Catharina, I'll start another project.
