Denial & The Contemplation of Something Totally Out of the Realm of Normalcy...

I do think I'm having a time of denial and foot-dragging to get thru this move...but when I took a few moments last night to "veg" after a full day of packing and running things over to the new place (7 trips this weekend with the Forester packed!)...well I picked up the new IK.

And what did I find that took my breath away?

oh...and the back view:

(I surely hope IK will forgive my posting of their gorgeous photos...but if you haven't seen this, I think it just might sell a few magazines for them by my posting them!)
I've seen and worn many sweaters in my life. I have NEVER knit one. I'm also new to cables, having only knit two of THESE which are equally as elegant as the IK Cable Down Raglan and a lot quicker to make! :)
I think, once this move is over and things are settled down and settled in a bit (and Hidcote at least OTN, Catharina completed!), this might just be my first sweater.
In these days of "is it hot in here?" those 3/4 sleeves are perfect for me (and yes, the color of the example sweater is, too!)

Bought the mag for this very sweater. I'm going to knit it in a smaller size than I wear, because I am on a doctor-supervised weight loss program. Talk about a carrot! VBG!

This sweater caught my eye also. I love the shaping. You should definitely knit it! The designer has her first book coming out this spring or summer.

Looks like I need to resubscribe to Ik. See, you sold one with your little advertisement! No, I am NOT going to knit it!

Hope you get moved in soon so you can rest!

Scary, isn't it? You start knitting cables and all of a sudden, everything you knit seems to need a cable...

This is gorgeous! I've got to get a copy of this magazine. I may not add it to the immediate list, but I'll want one eventually!

Top down raglans are one of the easiest styles to knit.. And if you can do lace, & I know you can unlike moi, you can do cables.. much easier {g}

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
