After I placed my order, I bought the pattern and after reading it thought it was a little more time-consuming (for me) for a one month project. So I started searching for other patterns that called for worsted weight yarn and fit the amount of yarn that I had already ordered. (Not that ordering more would be the worst right, but I didn't want to give the Loopy Elves more work.) A little while later I came up with Winifred (Ravelry link) which was in the queue. This is a new (to me) designer but the pattern doesn't seem too complicated. There is one cable down the front and the rest is stockinette knitting. I'm currently thinking short sleeves, but might do 3/4 length if I have time. (I told hubby my plan for short sleeves and his reply was why would you want a short sleeved sweater?)
I did my swatch today and had to go up one needle size to get gauge. Loopy is guarding my yarn until August 1st when I can cast on.
