|cochenille's version on ravelry|
and I might have even talked about it before today... I can't even remember, this is what happens when i'm completely sidetracked with a pattern... mrs. garter. by ankestrick ...so so smitten. I can just picture myself wrapped up in this with a good book and a cup of tea, in front of the Christmas tree. yes. perfect. though I highly doubt I could have it done in time for this Christmas, (I don't even have the yarn yet.. hah) i'm pretty determined to knit it .

the big question now is which colour-ways I want to knit the sweater in. i'm certain I want to knit the shorter version (as you see in both examples). i'm also partial to both of these combos. either a grey and darker grey, or a grey and yellow...
as for which yarn i'll use? i'm totally going to get a custom dye by the amazing sandara of duck duck wool! and i'm pretty excited about it!!
i'm also kind of surprised that this pattern has only been entered 60 times on ravelry. all of the comments are that the pattern is amazing, so well written, and the sweater is a quick fave staple of the knitter. at any rate i'm super excited to make this one a staple in my wardrobe .
but honestly, what do you guys think regarding the colour choices? any input?
do you have a sweater that is just calling your name? which is it? come chat. it's the perfect day for it, really. xo
