Knitter's are the BEST...

I am obsessed with this sweater.  LOVE IT!  Of course, I did not have the pattern for it as it was published when I started knitting.  I refuse to pay $15 for one pattern in a back issue.  So, I put a shout out on a knitter's message board & voila'..  Greta came to my rescue..   A big shout out to GRETA "You are the BEST!!"

The pictures in Vogue do not do this sweater justice - really.  Can you believe it and it's Vogue.  The Premier fashion magazine, Fashion Bible, etc..  crappy color, crappy pictures (in my opinion, of course). Now, I just have to figure out what color to knit it in first.  I want red, burnt orange, taupe, gray, and I am sure there are a few more colors as well.

The sweater pictured was made using Malabrigo.  One of my all time favorite yarns, soft, warm great colors choices and yardage BUT  it pills - pills terribly. On a sweater it would be even worse but I still want that color.  So, I am on the search.  I wonder if Deb at my favorite LYS has any suggestions.  Anyway, I will post my own pics as soon as I knit up my very own but until then here is my inspiration.  Pictures from Veronique.
