God I really shouldn't be posting right now as I am swamped at work, BUT I am sure I will work better once I get all this cuteness of my chest...So here's a cutaway cardigan that I spotted in Shibuya station - cute, huh!
So who wants to write the pattern? It costs about $70 in the shop and they had it in the cutest green. It has raglan sleeves and the collar is double knit (double-layered ribbing - if that makes sense). It was really soft because after checking it is 50% wool, 50% acrylic. I also like how there's an extra button on the collar. Maybe I'll just buy it - I really love cardigans.
In other news, there is a knitting festival in Tokyo this Friday (um, tomorrow) and on Saturday. I'm going on Saturday - anyone want to come (email me)? I have like six free tickets from the very kind Aoki-san from Keitodama. There'll be a Japanese vintage knitting exhibit
A knit cafe where you can knit away and read lots of lovely new Japanese knitting books - or at least look at the pictures. AND you may get to meet my buddy, the prince of knitting as he is giving a talk from 11am to 11:40am on Friday and Saturday.
Need I also mention that they will be selling yarn - Avril will be there as will many other yarn companies.
