"It did get me thinking about my own Sweater Quest. If you were to take on this type of project, what would your sweater be? Mine is Foolish Virgins by Kaffe Fassett. For which I have the original Rowan kit, carefully packed in mothproof wrapping, so no worrying about whether it's "real". It will probably go in my coffin with me, unknit."
I have been thinking about this for the last few days and I really don't know what my answer is. There are many sweaters that I'd like to knit and I know I have the skills to knit but I don't have the patience or willingness to be fully engaged. Take, for example, my Giant Latvian Mitten Cardigan. It's my one of oldest WIPs and the last time I worked on it was last July! It's probably my most ambitious knitting project. It takes a lot of mental energy and stamina to knit. When I sit down to knit in the evening I consider knitting it then end up choosing something easier. Something that doesn't require any though.
Some possible Quest contenders would be Morrigan (the pattern was published three years ago and there are only five completed sweaters on Ravelry and one was the sample from the book!) or maybe Am Kamin. I even knit a swatch cap for Am Kamin over two years ago but never got started.
What about you? What's your quest?
