Bubble Bobble

I have stockinette cabin fever! I have been knitting the same thing for months and months about once a week when I can squeeze in the time, and it is growing by about an inch per week. I have to knit something new. There are only so many months you can knit stockinette and remain sane. And so, I’m going to start something over which I’ve been drooling for a few months: The Bubble Pullover. I went on Ravelry to take a look at a few and figure out which yarn I liked best for it; here are my favourites.

First there’s BirgitteStrikker’s Bubble Pullover and JenniH’s Bubble Pullover.

knitress also has a beautiful one.

Of the ones I’ve really liked, one of four yarns was involved: Jaeger Extra Fine Merino Aran, Jaeger Matchmaker Merino DK, Plymouth Suri Merino, and Araucania Nature Wool. I really want to try the Araucania, but I thought you folks would be a good resource to help me decide which one to use. My main requirements are that the yarn does not pill, and… well, that’s it. I would love for it to be as soft as Malabrigo (*drool*) but I can’t expect it to be fairly sturdy and non-pilling if it is. I’d also like it to be fairly drapey because otherwise it looks like a box and I can always knit at a tighter gauge if I want to give it a bit of structure.

What do you guys think?

(BTW, I totally copped out on the no commenting thing, I am such a comment hog.)

  2. Yay! Comments are back! I was sorry to see them go (but of course too lazy to actually go over to the Ravelry message system to tell you so…)

    Anyway, the bubble pullover looks so cozy and nice. I love the asymmetrical collar. If you decide to go with the Jaeger Merino DK, let me know–I’ve got a good 8 skeins of baby blue I’m destashing :)
