• Purl:
    1. To knit with a reverse stitch. 2. Thread made of twisted gold or silver wire. 3. To flow with a curling or rippling motion as a shallow stream does over stones.

  • Random murmurings on knitting, with occasional digressions, by an oblivious dreamer who finds herself tripping through life. For more projects, check out my sewing blog as well.

please share a picture when you make this. it is GORGEOUS!!thanks for sharing,Amy

I love the projects that you pick! And I'm totally in love with this sweater. That brocade effect upper bodice is so intriguing. I'm anxious to hear what you have to say about the pattern when you read it.

Ooooh, pretty, pretty, pretty -- is that jacquard-looking part done on teeny needles? I'll be curious to find out more when you've got pattern and yarn in hand.

Egad. I totally agree. That is a stunning sweater, and it looks like it could be quite flattering. Good luck with it.
(I must say, however, that it looks like the model is wearing her boyfriend's pants.)
