Funny you should ask
I have been looking at the sweater in the new Vogue Knitting Winter 2009/10 on page 48. At first I though it was some kind of giraffe pattern, but the designer calls the spots "abstract flowers." It a design by Josh Bennett. I've never done any really big Fair Isle project, but I really like this sweater for some reason. I priced the yarn last night and it's gonna run me about $155!! My DH said to wait until we see what we get back on taxes and I could get it the.
Got home from work tonight and we had a refund check for overpayment of a medical bill...$157!!! Yay!!
I've never been part of a KAL before, so do we all have to do the same project or can we choose?
