That same morning, I also saw a blog post featuring Julie Hoover's Garance . This sweater is a bottom-up seamless pullover that combines another Shibui favorite, Heichi, with Silk Cloud. Yep, two Silk Cloud mentions just a few hours apart.
I'm sure no one's surprised that a few seconds later my thoughts shifted to "I need to knit more of it. now."
I have the Heichi in the pattern-suggested Caffeine colorway in my stash. Oh yes, this must be a sign; I need to knit that sweater.
I now have three skeins of the pattern-suggested Camel...
The neutral color is what fits into my wardrobe, but the sweater would also be great in a color...like purple. or blue.

. This is a top-down seamless pullover knit with the Silk Cloud held double. It's light as air and would be perfect to layer over a long-sleeved tee or a camisole to wear year-round. Right now, though, I'm loving that Apple colorway...just in time for spring!
So...have you touched the unicorn (yet)?
