Just In Time For The Holiday

You might want to escort any young kiddos out of the room. It's not obscene, just a bit traumatizing...

...unless your warped sense of humor is like mine.

In which case, you might want to put down your beverage of choice and swallow whatever may be in your mouth.

Don't blame me if you short out your keyboard.

I love Thursdays. Not only are there two great shows to watch on TV (and thus a good hour of creative time) but Rose Kim Knits posts her What the Hell Is This? find of the week. This guy comes to us courtesy of Crafty Hedgehog. She also has a dissected rat and frog, but their innards are a little more realistic.

Not that I've ever dissected a rabbit.

What I Made:

This little number was published over a year ago in Vogue Knitting (Fall 2007). I couldn't get it out of my head. The way the ribbing did all the shaping fascinated me.

On the front (above) the bust and sleeve shaping is in two little cabled darts sloping in from the bustline. The back (below) has the sleeve shaping done along the edge, which is traditional. I also love the way the ribbing grows and curves around to shape the waist and hip.

I knit it out of a cashmere blend--Rowan Cashsoft DK. This sweater is a year old and still so soft and nice. I love wearing it.

It is also the fourth pattern/fifth garment I knit from this particular issue of VK.
