I admit it. I have major sweater lust. My mind is constantly drifting toward a future where the sweater and I can be together. We frolic through a (strangely) utopian Seattle park where wildflowers bloom and cheesy music plays. The sweater is worn with jeans and skirts and maybe even a random dress or two. It dresses up and dresses down and goes with everything I already own. It fits perfectly and is just the right thing to wear for all occasions. Ahem. The sweater is Kira by Cecily Glowik Macdonald. Jessica pointed me to this design and I immediately purchased both pattern and yarn. The original is knit out of Nordique, Veronik Avery's yarn line, which I've been interested in trying out. Yesterday I picked up the yarn in the exact color that Cecily used and am itching to cast on. Cecily's patterns (Winged Knits over on Ravelry) are exactly my style. Some are a little retro-inspired but all have interesting details and seem like they would be flattering on different body types. Have a look-see(Rav link).
