I am sure most of you know the new Rebecca is out. I am on the newsletter list, so I saw the designs for the first time about a month ago. To tell you the truth, I wasn't really sure I would pick up this new issue. I really liked the designs in the Winter issue, but the Spring designs looked a little "young" for me.....until I went to KH and Kristine (the sweet talker that she is), convinced me to make this:
And, here is the yarn I will be using:
It is the GGH Kid Soft in the color Sky Blue. It really is the softest yarn, and I figure with a bunch of people locally working on the same sweater, I can probably find some help. I have never knit with mohair before. Knitting it doesn't scare me...having to rip it out to fix mistakes has me worried.
I went by Banana Republic this weekend and found the cutest tank to wear under the sweater. The blues are a little off, but I think it will look ok. I really like the tank, and they have a bunch of others on their site. Watch, I'll get going on this sweater and it will end up snowing in May!
