Plucky Sweater, in Karat Stix has been on the drawing board this week, and I'm messing around with images and swatches, trying to figure out what feels right for the yarn and the color and the season that's about to change.
After a few hours of playing with my photos and my stitch dictionaries, I realized that I hadn't properly noted what I was looking at.
This photo had been in front of me for hours, I tell you -- without ridicule! (I was looking at the white eyelet number on the right, in my defense.) But, seriously, a cropped Mickey Mouse sweater on a grown woman -- actually a, 99 lb model with a washboard stomach -- titled "Gut Feeling" and I hadn't as much as furrowed my brow at it yet? Tells you I was engrossed, doesn't it?
But my gut feeling after multiple yarnovers was that the Plucky Sweater needs some cables, and that's what it's getting today. These little eyelets need to be on a drapier, more summery yarn, and that Mickey Mouse needs to be ironed on a full length tee shirt. In my opinion, anyways.
And.... look what arrived in the mail yesterday.
