this is part of the unsettled feeling in my knitting. i have been searching for some time, for the *perfect* summer cardigan. i have seen several that i like, but there's always something about it that doesn't jive (ie: size
the ones i like, but not "enough"? well ...
... the first is IK's spring '08 hexacomb cardigan. it's simply cute. but, i am in between sizes. and i'm not sure i like all its elements. i would do it in one color though.
... secondly, this free pattern from lion brand for the top down cropped raglan sweater. i have seen some good, and bad, versions of this, but, it has potential.
... another one i like? ... nashua's cropped lace cardigan (seen here made and modeled by the lovely zarah.
... oh! and speaking of lace, let's not forget this beautiful katherine hepburn cardigan from IK's _lace style_.
so, i am perusing my barbara walker books, taking notes from ann budd, sippin' beer, hanging with stuart, and dreaming of what i can create.
