St. Brigid Yarn Selection

After sitting on the floor of my LYS for over an hour contemplating colors for my Alice Starmore St. Brigid Sweater, I finally made a selection. I really wanted a teal color but there was no teal in the shop. I guess I’m easily influenced by pictures. The St. Brigid sweaters modeled in Aran Knits were earthy jewel tones and so I have those shades pictured in my minds eye for this sweater. I settled on an Olive-Moss colored green which is a good color for me.

My goal is to swatch for the next few weeks as I finish up some UFO’s and then go full force come September 1. Want to come along and join me? Check out the St. Brigid Yahoo Group on my sidebar.

  1. That is going to be very pretty — I can’t wait to see a swatch!

    Very, very early on I’d considered a Norwegian superwash — a bargain at Elann.com — I swatched and didn’t care for how it felt while knitting, but I run across that swatch now and then and wow, the cables are GORGEOUS and after a wash it doesn’t really feel that bad (I think I was exercising my right to be a snob). I’m going to have to knit something with it someday — either an everyday, washable sweater for me, or maybe a few things for my nephew.

    Stop reading… get swatching!

    How long do you think it will take you to knit?
    SP8

  4. That’s my favorite color. I’m always a green person, but I especially like the olive/moss shades of green.

  5. That’s a beautiful sweater. I will enjoy following your progress. It will make a lovely fall and winter knit.

  6. Gorgeous Rebecca! I’m also attracted to greens. Strabahnn would be my first choice but VY only has it in 2-ply right now! Argh! So, I’m currently trying to decide between Golden Plover and Witchflower. Two totally different colors. Sigh
