I've known all along that I wanted to reverse engineer this sweater:
It is also starting to show some wear, so before it completely dissolves, I wanted to memorialize it in measurements, and attempt to re-create it as well.
Neuro, you will remember our Great New England Yarn Adventure years ago, when I was on a quest to find the perfect yarn for Ruana. I found it at Green Mountain Spinnery (where they had to toss down extra cones from the loft so I could have enough yardage). I knitted it furiously (all garter stitch), and have not worn it one single time. In about 10 years.
It's awesome yarn - wool and mohair. Yes, it's way thicker than the yarn in the original sweater. Yes, it's a completely different color. But I am seriously considering repurposing.
What do you think?
