I switched over my wardrobe from winter to summer (which mostly involves putting away the shorts and pulling out the sweaters - most of it stays the same), and finally had to deal with the problem of my sweaters.
You see, I have about a half dozen handknit sweaters which are... too big. Not too big by a little, but too big by a lot. I don't want to give them to goodwill, so I had to get up the courage and start a frog pond.
In the frog pond we have:
My very first sweater ever. Made of a very wooly wool I bought at a flea market in Wisconsin.
My Wicked cardigan. Knit out of Cascade 220. This is a pattern I would actually knit up again, and very well may.
The Quincy hat, which is not really a good look for me and cashmere is a horrible thing to waste.
The Amelia cardigan, which I like and put a lot of work into, but now that the arms fit, the body is a bit saggy. Made of Cascade Lana d'Oro.
Frosting. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but it's too messy for a gift, and too itchy for my poor sensitive skin. Made of Cascade Cloud 9.
These will join my Bulky Mini-Cardi, which got frogged last week. The Arucania Nature Cotton may get a second life...
Narrowly avoiding the frog pond are my Tangled Yoke Cardigan and my Eris cardigan. I don't think the yarn of either will stand up to frogging. Besides, I love my Tangled Yoke. Eris was never really a success, but it is warm. Both will be okay for curling up in around the house.
Letting go is hard, but there will suddenly be a lot more a lot more yarn in my stash.
