cash, originally uploaded by myhighfiber.

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!
