Maybe this one.

My mom gave me some beautiful brown handspun several years ago. I worried initially that the thickness varied. She plied it. Then I worried that it wasn't enough for a full sweater. She offered to un-ply it. I thought maybe I'd ply it or knit it every-other-row (or something) with another thick wool yarn like Reynolds Lopi. Never knew what I'd knit with it, but knew that horizontal stripes look awful on me, and that I love cables.

OK, cables are negotiable, because I think this is it. Simple but nice.

i like it! and i think that particular sweater probably only looks good in a more 'natural' color so i say give it a try!

(and post pictures, of course.)
