I wanted to take down all the details, but before I could, it went off to this appointment and that. Then it ended up in HK for customer development. I made it known that as soon as it comes back I NEED it!!! (For my line - of course) It came back a few weeks ago and all stitches, measurements and details have been recorded.
Then one Tuesday at LIC knit, I was flipping through the new Anthropologie catalog that Carolyn had brought to knit group and there it was again!
So I'm obsessed and must make it. I know exactly what yarn I'm going to use and everything. I'll even relearn how to crochet for the button placket detail. Anything, anything to have this sweater in my wardrobe this year.
My Rhinebeck purchase with this sweater in mind.
I love Anthropology. I really, really do. But I'm so torn about copying a sweater from there. I feel so.....cheap. If it was less known and harder to get a hold of the original, I feel I have an excuse, but Anthro is just a few subway stops away. I guess my excuse could be saving $100 off the cost of the sweater? But is that still justified - even if I would NEVER spend the $198 on it no matter how much I like it? The jury is still out.
