I am faced with a difficult question. I've decided to make my first sweater for myself. More specifically: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEspring07/PATTcarolyn.html
I looked up the yarn it calls for, and it's really quite affordable. However, it's April and wool might not be fitting with the weather ahead. Also, some wools are itchy. I've never ordered yarn offline because I like seeing things with my own eyes.
I was considering: http://www.knitpicks.com/CotLin_YD5420162.html
But the colors don't have a great selection.
Any suggestions for some more seasoned knitters? It would be much appreciated.
