commitment ....

... to a sweater! no, i have not seamed my chocolate pullover ... perhaps tomorrow .....

but, i have my eyes on a fresh sweater. i have purchased and printed the pattern, bought and wound the yarn, and am about to embark on a project i hope to have finished within a month.

te presento, twist!


yarn pictured is cascade 220 shade 2434, heathered. i think it will look good with a reddish lipstick. seriously.

i considered so many sweaters ... enough to drive any knitter nuts ... but this design won because of its simplicity, lack of need of modifications, wearability, and it's a cardigan ! plus, i really wanted just another excuse to knit with cascade 220 again.

in other knitterly news, i finished weaving in the ends of the shawl. i finished a koigu monkey, and i drooled over other yarns today. yep. a day in the life of a knitter .....

Pretty pattern and I LOVE the color of course!
I think a snappy red lip would look great with this color....maybe some spunky red shoes to go with.

wearability is my newest and highest criteria now for sweaters. there are tons of patterns out there that "look great" but when I really sit down and consider them, and would I really wear them, they go buh-bye. Twist is a great example of a functional, stylish and super cute sweater! In that color - red lipstick - wowza!
