I don't even know what to say about this one. Probably hand-knit by Old Aunt Min who went blind from doing the intarsia and weaving in the ends. Hmmmmm.....
I say if you are going to spend hours and hours making a hand-knit piece, you should be able to wear it. And look damn good doing so. The Problem Ladies over at Twist Collective think so too.
As you begin selecting spring and summer projects, you might want to consult:

- Of a Certain Age: Karen is a stylish woman who encourages all of us to dump the frump. Yeah, Karen! My only regret is that Karen lives in a very warm climate and cannot wear sweaters.
- Myshape.com: At this cool online shop you can enter your detailed measurements and get a body shape diagnosis. You answer some personal style questions and then, voila! the software somehow creates a shop within a shop with just stuff that will look good on your body type.
