Cia's Basketweave Sweater
Cia rep's Louet Yarns (among other yarn companies) and she has generously provided us with the beautiful Kidin and Euroflax samples for Sunday's trunk show. She has knit every sample and has also designed the Cia cardigan which is bound to be a favorite. Every time she visits, she has something exquisite to show. This time, she was wearing this incredible purple jacket which I couldn't keep my hands off. It looks woven, but it's a very soft knit done in a basketweave stitch. The mandarin collar, the edging detail, the loose but not boxy fit...it's damn near perfect, if you ask me! Ah, the inspiration of it all. It reminds me that now is the time to be knitting for the Fall in addition to knitting quick little tanks and cami's!
