Way back in November I won some Briar Rose after posting on this Knit-Along. Whoooo Hooo I won I won. Ever since I've been pondering and pondering and I finally think I've decided what to use my Wistful for. As you all probably already know. Briar Rose Fiber fits as part of the "prize stash". Not because I won the fiber but just because its just fabulous. I can't think of knitting something with it that isn't absolutely perfect. This is a very high standard which often prevents me from ever using Briar Rose. Though I do have an ever growing stash of it.

So, as I was saying, pondering, pondering, when I came across a woman wearing a cute sweater that I was sure I'd knit before, but I couldn't place it. I tapped her on the shoulder and asked, "What's the pattern for that sweater?" (it was clearly a hand knit beauty). And before she could even get the second letter out of her mouth, I knew... EZ's Best Baby Sweater! I had knit that pattern, it was just for a much smaller body. Genius! She said she just did the math following EZ's advice and viola, the perfect sweater for Briar Rose. So I've got my pencil out and I'm going to dust the math cobwebs out of my brain and I'll have a Best Briar Rose Sweater for myself made from Wistful. I can't wait!

That sounds like a great idea. I'm impressed with your math confidence. I'd never even attempt that.

Do you have a picture of your yarn?
