the domestic sphere

my dalliances with all things domestic


yarn search

So here's a question: I am still trying to knit/design a sweater that Leo will really like. There have been rounds of negotiations, perusals of various yarns, patterns, etc. And here's the deal: Single color, in a neutral shade, about 5 st/inch; a simple stitch pattern is okay, e.g. vertical or horizontal ribs; reasonably fitted (have the right sweater to measure). Here's the good news: Decided the yarn can be more lavish, though must be rugged and washable to a reasonable degree. Want something smooth rather than fuzzy. Oh, and must not get too saggy like many pure cotton yarns.

A tall order? Perhaps. Give me your suggestions, though.
