After several intriguing and tempting suggestions for a project best suited for the glories of Satori, including this fabulous tank top (suggested by Kellee, scroll down to #28), instant gratification won out, and I decided to go with Picovoli, a simple T knit design by Grumperina. It's advantages?
1) Simple, yet ingenious design
2) Sleeveless, therefore I have enough yarn
3) Free, and instantly downloadable
That last one was the most important, as I was not only dying to cast on a project with this yarn, but I was facing 8 - 10 hours in the car this weekend.
It took some math to convert the drastically different gauge called for in the pattern, and I was concerned about knitting a pattern designed for tight-gauge cotton in a loose-gauge silk/mohair blend, but so far it seems to be working okay. It passed the try-on-at-the-bust-stage, and the fit seems to be okay (I was slightly ecstatic to see that my math was at least close), which is great.
My only concern right now is that it is WARM. Very Very Warm. I was invisioning this a fall sweater with jeans, but I don't know if it will ever be chilly enough to require such a warm, cap sleeve sweater.
But it might just be that my apartment was about 85 degrees inside when I tried it on.
