The first sweater that I unravelled had nothing to do with the colours in this blanket. It was the next one on the list. I like having the list - it means that I can avoid making decisions and nothing gets left out. I bought it at the same time as the sweater in #160, so it was obviously by the same knitter, also never used. This used several shades of nice mohair wool and some DK. It was easy to unravel, and the yarn so lovely.
I bought the second, a Susan Bristol cardigan, because I wanted the clasps. Not for any particular purpose now, but because they may come in useful, and new ones are expensive. It is an American brand, knitted to a traditional Norwegian design. Unlike the Norwegian ones I see - and there are a lot of Dale of Norway ones around - the armholes in this one are not cut, so it was easy to unravel. The yarn is thicker than I feared, easily up to 4 ply weight.
And the third was another Marks and Spencer cashmere cardigan. I tried wearing it for a while, and although the style was comfortable I could not get on with the pale blue colour. So it went. Blogger refuses to add the picture now.
