Well, I've gone and done it! I hit the Jo-Anns in Bolingbrook last night to stock up on some Cotton-Ease. My parents had given me $50 for Easter that I had yet to spend, so I went for the yarn. I still have $.25 left...
Cotton-Ease: Black and Bubblegum
For those of you living in the area, Bolingbrook Jo-Ann's had a tonf of colors and skeins. If you are looking to stock up, I suggest heading out there.
When I did arrive home, I was greated with this:
Knit Picks Green Apple and Blush Shine and Euclean
Since green is the 'new pink', I decided that I shouldn't descriminate--I'll do a pink and green sweater.
So what did I promptly do?
I swatched for the Vogue Tennis Sweater...

The guage is pretty much dead-on. And I must say, I really like this stuff. It is very soft knitted up as well as in the ball. The stitch definition is amazing. Those cables really pop. So, I guess I would suggest this yarn to whoever was maybe on the fence.
I also really like the pattern thus far. Maybe I'll make a few of these in some different colors and fibers. It looks pretty versitle--no shirt underneath, collared shirt underneath, camisole underneath...
So, Jeremy got home from class last night and I was knitting the ribbing of the Vogue. I said, "Did you notice that I got my yarn?" He said, "It all looks the same to me. I wouldn't know if you had that stuff for months." Good to know...Muwahahahaha!
