But I wanted it so bad!

9:03 AM

Went to Barnes & Noble last night to check and see if VK Spring/Summer '06 was in and it was. I wanted this issue because I was very intrigued to see what they would offer up in the form of what I like to refer to as "Hybrid Knitwear" (knitting and crochet). Let me just say, it was nothing to do cartwheels out of the store over! The only thing that I thought was kinda cute was a cropped jacket. I don't know about you, but I'm getting a little tired of the shrugs and boleros! I still may make this one in a neutral color just to have a cute "going-to-the-movies" sweater for this summer.

However, it wasn't a total waste of money, there is a pattern for the Michael Kors whipstitched tunic that I have been oogling since I saw the advertisement in the March issue of Vogue. Talk about love at first sight. I envisioned myself wearing this over a pair of cool, crisp white linen shorts with a totally fabulous pair of wedge sandals (yes, I am a shoe whore). This dream almost turned into a nightmare when I saw the suggested yarn: Classic Elite's "Posh"! Sorry, can't offer up a car payment for this tunic, no matter how much I love it. But all may not be lost, did a little searching around, found a couple of subs courtesy of Berroco (Cotton Twist and Touche'). The hardest thing of all was finding a suitable substitute in bright orange.
