A big project is brewing at the moment. "The Holiday" sweater.
The one Cameron Diaz wore in the movie The Holiday. Its funny...the ONLY reason I even saw the movie was because my friend told me that Cameron Diaz was wearing a Louis Vuitton Coat that we both fell in love with during one of our window shopping outings to the Vuitton flagship store last year. It was a winter white wool coat with wonderful details. So I rented the movie, drooled over the coat, again, and then swooned over the sweater.
I quickly discovered I was not the only one in love with the wardrobe choices in that movie. Web searches revealed that the sweater was a cashmere TSE cardigan, but it doesn't seem to exist anywhere else in the virtual world (much like the Louis Vuitton coat).
Anyway, the film was on the other night and I was reminded how much I want that sweater. Surprisingly, it looks knit-able. So I swatched the smaller cable motif and am figuring out the larger one, which looks like a more spread out version of the smaller motif. There is really nice shaping detail on the back as well.
Its a good project to start off the new year. I'll work out the details over the holiday and aim to get knitting after the break.
