Oh I just can't wait until the yarns arrive so I can knit a big cardigan sweater like the ones in the picture. Lucky for us knitters, a cardigan like the ones in the photos below (Dolce &Gabana, Y & Kei) would cost upwards of a thousand dollars to buy one at a high fashion department store! The funny situation that having studied fashion has put me in, is that I insist on high quality clothing now, which makes it more and more difficult for me to shop! Most well priced retailers don't pay very much attention to detail and that the materials they used id going to last over one season. We live in a very disposable world right now. I still find designer steals ocassisonally, but I shop with a conscience. I think most knitters would agree that a lovingly made sweater lasts a lifetime!
