Attempting to remedy my yarn hoarding, part 2

All right, this whole let’s-use-up-existing-stash-yarn-before-buying-new-yarn thing is way harder than I thought.  In the month since I last posted, I started a sweater and then decided I didn’t like the colorway after all.  That yarn will have to find itself a new home.  

Then I started another sweater (Buttony by Katie Marcus) and it seems to be working out.  Except there’s one small problem… it’s not going to use up much of the stripe colors at all.  Even worse, I ran out of the burgundy and had to go out and buy another skein. D’oh!

The plan for the sleeves is to make them 3/4 length, but I’m on the fence as to whether I want the cuffs to be folded back or not.  This is a super fast patter, despite how long it’s taking me.  I’m having trouble fitting long stretches of knitting time in / getting distracted lately, but hopefully I’ll be finished with this sweater before it’s too warm to wear!

What projects are you working on?
