Yes, I openly admit to being a lazy knitter. It's not that I'm lazy
per se... I just have a lot going on. So, if I put a project down I want
to be able to pick it right up again in about oh... 2 months. I also
don't like my yarns to be exclusive. Sure, I could round up some cabled
fair isle craziness but that's not what Darn Good Yarn is about. The
complexity of these yarns will speak for themselves in understated
Recently, I was asked for a few recommendations for a slightly fitted
sweater. Here's what I came up with! If you know of others that should
be on this list, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, if you ever have a question about how many balls of yarn to get for a pattern, email us! That's what we're here for!

A little looser, I don't think you need to strip this one.. just go for
it in our Premium Recycled Silk. With the nice wide stitching it would
look stunning with a strong solid fitted tank top underneath it!

http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEff10/PATTmythos.php I love this sweater and it will be on my to-do. Use the solid colored recycled silks or the premium recycled silk sari yarn.
