it's winter, time to get back into sweater mode. not really inspired though. feeling overwhelmed by all the stylin' patterns around. and not really into colour right now. i think i've internalized the fall fashion shows and i'm dismissing colour from ym wardrobe, warming up to neutrals, urban camouflage. what i crave right now is a dark jungle green shawl collared sweater jacket ... kinda like a jungle green version of the crappy black one i got at the gap last year. maybe i should just trot down to the gap or old navy or H&M (insert generic chain store here) to scratch that itch. will meditate on that ... so anyway, i've cast on an hourglass sweater from "Last Minute Knitted Gifts". starting a sweater class next week, need something on the needles to demonstrate. and i've made one already but i made the wrong size, it's too big, and the wrong colour for my complexion (i just HAD to have a purple sweater, didn't I?) but i know i'll like it. so i'm using cash iroha . the sweater needs a little something to carry it since it is so simple. i was thinking about using the Black Berroco Boho, knowing it would make a great slinky sweater that i'd wear forever ... but i lost my momentum. you can make a sweater from the boho if you like.
ya know why it's called "cash iroha"? 'cause if you buy it it'll cost a lot of cash! ha-haa!
