I get the Yo Gabba Gabba song "Snacky, snack, snack, snack, snack" stuck in my head but with "Knit" instead a lot. Today is one of those times. I tried to find a youtube video of it, but apparently you are just going to need to be in the know and have watched Yo Gabba Gabba to know what I am talking about. If you don't know, consider me saving you from it: the only songs I ever get stuck in my head anymore are Yo Gabba Gabba songs.
So I am very excited because I ordered a new skirt last week and it got here yesterday. Very speedy like since it was coming from the UK! Got 15% off for signing up for their mailing list, too!
I am in love! I decided yesterday it is the only thing I want to wear from now on. Since I have decided this, I immediately got looking on the internets for some good sweaters to knit to go with it. At least if I am going to wear the same skirt every day I can have a whole pile of different tops to go with it, right? I had pinned this a while back, so I started looking for some sweaters with a similar feel.
I got these boots as a Christmas gift, so I am set on boots.
I thought this free sweater pattern from Berroco had the right vibe going on.

Since I like the texture of the cotton yarn in the outfit picture I thought Weekend would be a good choice for it. I've used it for several things and like it a lot: it is cottony without all the nightmares and unfun knitting of a cotton. Know what I mean? I also thought any of these on my to-knit list would look great with it:
Man, digging through my favs on Rav and all my pins on my To-Knit pinboard made me realize how many projects I want to make. Now the trick is getting off the computer and getting knitting or my sweater-making-productivity is going to stay at a virtual stand still!
