sweaters! (or the complete opposite thing I should be knitting right now)
right now, at the beginning of april, i'm getting obsessed with knit sweater patterns. i should be thinking about spring dresses, floral prints and little sandals, but it was supposed to snow this past weekend, so i'm stuck in sweater mode. for just a bit more.
i've been admiring the sweaters in the vogue knitting winter 2009/10 issue for a while now. i know i should just go ahead and order this issue so i'll have these patterns when i finally get the urge to knit them. i particularly love the second photo, the shawl neck cardigan. however, i just came across a pattern for this cardigan...
this project by hiiragi on ravelry has the basic elements of the vogue pattern, and love the stripes, the wide band....the only thing i'd do differently is add big brown woven-looking buttons.
on the other hand, there's the stripey sweater which i'm always drawn to. this one above is a creation from alicey on ravelry. this one is a free vogue knitting pattern but she says she made some significant mods, so i'm torn.
