That said, I did recently pay a visit and saw this awesome “What to Knit” segment featuring a real life (and really tall) person trying on different knit sweaters so she could see what they looked like on her in real life and with her real clothes.
It’s really fascinating, because things you don’t expect to look good on her end up being really cute. She and I both fell in love with Gibson, a big top-down cardigan with ribbed panels on the front and a wide collar. It’s worked in a new yarn, Kodiak, which is a blend of alpaca, nylon and wool.
Both the yarn and the pattern are set to be released soon, and I’m rather looking forward to it.
