since i’ve started knitting in earnest, i find myself incredibly reticent to buy sweaters. i look at them (especially cheapie ones from places like old navy) and think “i could make that in much nicer yarn from someplace sorta cheapy like knitpicks, do a better job, and it would cost less.”
the only sweaters i’m tempted to buy are the tiny tiny ultrafine gauge knit sweaters that i’d never make – for instance a knee-length duster machine knit on what appears to be size 000000000000 needles.
but my temptation is fleeting, and then pragmatism takes over again.
however the result is, that i currently have very few sweaters because it takes time and resources to knit sweaters, people.
holy crap, what a boring post.
