So, that fabulous twisted stitch tunic on the cover of the new Knits is O-Wool Classic Worsted! It's the perfect choice to set off the stitch detail, and it's knit in Ash, which is a dark slightly blueish-grey. I might just have to cast on for this tonight. The magazine gives options for customizing it - I think I would make it longer and wear it with leggings and those Frye Harness Boots the model is wearing. Holiday party outfit, anyone?
