Somehow, some way, a few (6 really) skeins of Elsebeth Lavold Angora ended up at my house. I saw it on Elann the other day and just had a hot burning to have some. I’d thought to use it for Wicked, but when I swatched it, didn’t think it was a perfect fit. My washed swatch was so pretty and lightly fluffed I decided it needed to be a bit more retro looking. I shall delve into the stash to come up with something with which to make Wicked, but Angora needs to be a bit more, well, sexy.
Looking around at patterns I saw elements of what I wanted, but not the ONE. Oh hell, I’ll have to make it up. I am soooo lazy, but needs must. I drew a sketch of what’s on my mind, a fitted sweater, with short puffy sleeves and a deeeep V-neck with a band of ribbing around. The body will be ribbing, alternating pattern at the waistline to emphasize the assets, so to speak. Ditto for the low neckline. I told you tight already, right? I’ll have to make a pencil skirt to wear with it for a naughty librarian look. No, I’m not a librarian, but I do have a library card!
