As the winter progressed, I was working on a sweet little short-sleeved, swingy cardigan for the Girl. It is yellow with red buttons (see crap photo below):
Flash forward to after the holidays, sale area of Starbucks. Giant stack of gift bags - 50% off. I buy three. Now I have my buttons. I have the yarn too. But now I want to incorporate the green from the gift bag into the design somehow. I even have yarn that is the right color . . . this is getting crazy. I want a sweater that looks like a holiday gift bag from a coffee shop.
I should be casting on this weekend - for real (not like the Urban Aran pipe dream/mistake). So we shall see how it works out!
