I really should be in bed... (aka will knit for food)

...but instead, I'm messing/obsessing about this.

I got my issue of the fall Interweave Knits and instantly fell in love with this pattern...

I want to make this sweater so badly. I've been wracking my brain for the past few weeks on how I could possibly afford it. Should I use up all of the undyed Peace Fleece I have and hope I could fit 10 skeins in my dye pot? Should I just go out and buy a whole bunch of Lion Brand Fisherman's Wool and again dye it to suit? Or maybe just buy some of KnitPicks cheapest wool.

Then I found the answer.

I've found a co-op for Haindpainted Yarn.

It's still going to cause some havoc with my finances (especially 'cause I can't sell plasma because of the Bean :P), but shaving off more than a bit from my pocket money for next month, I can swing it.

Here are the colors I'm considering:

Tell me what you think.

Off to bed - 'night all!
