So my sisters birthday was coming fast. I wanted to make her something. I went into the yarn store (Holly Berry, in Colorado Springs) for some inspiration and I found an awesome sweater. The catch: the yarn was really really really expensive. I think I thought about it there for almost two hours. I really liked the pattern. I decided to go home and think about it. When I got home I checked out my stash and I found some fuchsia pink yarn I had purchased when I first learned to knit. Just the right weight! Not quite the right color.
It helps that she's a fantastic model!
