Sometimes, there are projects so amazing, so jawdropping, so beautiful that you feel that you must knit them one day. Sylvi is that project for me. It is stunning. I picture myself strolling, ney sashaying down the catwalk, I mean street. I see myself smiling as other women gasp in awe at my lovely creation.
The only problem is what yarn? I mean, I'd need a lot and it could really add up if I pick something expensive. However, if I am making a lovely jacket that I will wear for always, perhaps I should invest in some quality yarn. (Thanks for pointing that out, Andi. Like I need an excuse to purchase expensive yarn. Remember this?) And how do I know if the yarn I select will stretch out over time? I plan on having it lined so that it will be warm and to give it a little added structure but will lining the sweater be enough to prevent sagging?
I think I'm going to have to just ask a whole lot of people who knit this lovely sweater. Thanks, Ravelry, for once again connecting knitters.
