She's so Smug

Here I was, minding my own business, when FemiKnit Mafia started going on about the new Kate Gilbert design in Interweave Knits. I thought, "so what?" It's just a sweater. Not everyone has a thing for Kate, y'know (*cough* Clapotis *cough* Sunrise Circle Jacket *cough*). I didn't even look at the yarn requirements on the Interweave website.

Then my issue arrived yesterday. A Cardigan for Arwen is gorgeous.

I'm a total sucker for anything LotR and these cables are fabulous. Still, it calls for 14 balls of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran and I think it is a bit short. Then I remembered. I have 18 balls of Cashmerino Aran lounging in my stash. I picked it up at a closeout sale with the intention of making that sweater. I've pretty much given up on that one until my chart skills are up to Japanese notes. My first instinct was that Arwen needs to be in a mossy green. Still, the stash yarn is a lovely, deep wine color and I already have it! Decisions, decisions.

Should I add you to the Arwen KAL?
