I'll start

I've had this yarn

for years now (we won't go into how many). I bought it for myself as a special present when I turned 40. It's 100% merino wool, and so soft and warm, and knits up like a dream. I knit a yummy cardigan (still needs buttons attached—I have them, they have Viking ships on them) from it. Lovely Nordic cables running up each front, courtesy of Elsepeth Lavold.

I've been wondering what to do with the rest of it ever since. I mean, I know what I want to do... I want a shell to wear under my cardigan. But which one? I think I finally know.

I got this pattern, Green Gable, and I love it. The gauge is close enough that I think it'll work, but I need to swatch it. That'll happen soon. If I make this sweater the plan is to knit it an inch or two longer than what is shown in that photo on the button... I'm not exactly in the midriff showing phase of life any more after all. LOL

i think the green gable will look great in this yarn and will be a good shape under another sweater.
