    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.

I've always been drawn to that pattern, even though I know it would not work for me. I love the colors you're using. I think I may have been the little imp that pointed out those Manos skeins to you!

I can't imagine myself wearing this with my short waist -- I think it would make me look chunky. But I love the texture, and I imagine on someone taller than me it would be great -- clean lines, and there's that flattering v-neck again . . .
