Coat Coveting

For the most part, when it comes to knitting, I’m a bit of a cheapskate. Sure, I shell out for luxurious yarns, but I really am a “one skein wonder” kind of gal. Sock yarns make a pair of socks per skein, lace-weight goes a long way; I seldom get enough of anything to make a ‘big’ project (sweater, scarf, etc).

Likewise with patterns. Rare enough do I buy magazines or books, let alone shell out for single patterns (in store or online). Especially with more free patterns available online than I could ever knit in my lifetime, it takes a lot to impress me enough to part with my cash.

Sylvi, from the Winter 2008 issue of Twist Collective, may just entice me to pony up for both patterns and a large quantity of yarn. What a fabulous coat! But oh, to have the time to knit it…

    Love it! If you use Knit Picks’ Wool of the Andes Bulky, it would come to under $50 for the smallest size. I might just have to go for one of those too…

  2. Sylvie is just spectacular isn’t it! I too struggle to justify yarn expenditures but this issue of Twist may be too compelling to resist!

  3. OMG it makes me think of Poinsettias!
