I am really into knitting cardigans for myself right now and while I was perusing some old magazines looking for a particular pattern, I came across this sweater. This Zippered Jacket is from Vogue Knitting, Winter 2004/05. I am going to knit it with Knit Picks Merino Style yarn in Pine.
This yarn here was actually the real reason why I was shopping at Knit Picks again. I wanted to get ShineSport yarn in River to make the Peapod Baby Set. My girlfriend had her first baby in August and I wanted to knit something up for her son for Christmas. This blue is really as vibrant as it appears in the photo.
So yes, I kinda had a falling down at Knit Picks last week, but I absolutely refuse to place an order unless I can get free shipping. The ShineSport yarn didn't cut the mustard when it came to meeting the $45 requirement, sooooooooooooo can you blame me for tossing the other yummies in?
