    Mother of God and all Her wacky nephews!!!
    A girl can’t have too many sexy cardis…know what I mean?

  22. Michelle says:

    Nice! What a great design. Must get through some current projects before plotting and scheming this new one…

  23. Sarah says:

    Oh how you tempt, Bonne Marie… I can’t wait to get this sucker on my needles… should be ready to do so in a week or so.

  25. Julia says:

    I’m so excited, I just ordered it. I also am working on my second Twist and my second Cece. Your designs are just the best!

  26. Colleen says:

    I regularly keep track of what is published in mainstream knitting magazines, and your designs are consistently better–more wearable, more flattering, more of what I think most knitters want…to spend what little time we have to knit making something that we will look beautiful in and want to wear. Thank you for sharing your designs and doing what I imagine is a lot of less than fun behind the scenes work to bring them to all of us!

  27. Darci says:

    very dreamy…great another thing on my list of things to do…Oh why did I wait so long to start knitting again…

  28. Sharlene says:

    Love it! I’m still working on Cece, but I want the specs anyway. Can you tell us if its knit in the round or in pieces? I can’t tell from the photo, are the sleeves set-in?


  29. Liz says:

    Bonne, this is just what I’ve been looking for. I even have the Selkirk to make it! I bought it last year and just haven’t found the right pattern until now. I’ll have it on the needles by week’s end. Thanks!

  30. LaurieM says:

    A lovely design. No good for me personally, but I do like it. Atta girl!

  31. katie says:

    Bonne Marie, you have done it again! It’s just beautiful! I see a knitalong for this one. And I’m going to have to make this my must-knit for myself this fall!

  32. Michelle says:

    OHH I love it! A definite must order!!!!!!

  33. Debi says:

    Bonne Marie, I love your designs! I’ve knit many for friends and family but never for ME! Why? because you never size them big enough. I know to the slender amongst us 45.5″ seems huge but even VOGUE is including up to a 50″ in their patterns!! I don’t mean to sound like a whinging pratt but please consider some sizing for the fluffy? :)

  34. cari says:

    You’ve done it again! I love this sweater. As soon as the baby gives me a minute to go get my credit card, I’m ordering it. (No more paypal? I seem to remember using paypal for past orders)

  35. Leslie says:

    Bonne Marie, What a beautiful sweater, I mean lovely! Wonderful design job.

  36. Jennifer says:

    Bonnie Marie, you just rocked my world. Not only is Ariann beautiful, but the specs had my favorite phrase: “knit in one piece.” I am SO ordering this pattern!!!

  37. Mary-Heather says:

    Wow! This is just beautiful, Bonne Marie. Well done. I love all that all the funky individual elements (big buttons, skinny tie belt, great big collar) add up to such a classy, wearable sweater. Great design!

  38. Patty says:

    It’s lovely. I’ve just downloaded the pattern. Can you offer some suggestions for warm weather yarn substitutions? i’m thinking a blend that would work in the fall/winter down south. Beautiful design!!

  39. sogalitno says:

    i was just LAST NIGHT looking at a sweater in a tv show – now don’t get upset – on Miss Marple – but it was the New version with G McEwan and she had on a great 50’s (very retro for now) cardigan and i was saying – I reallllly want that sweater – and lo and behold – here is yours – VERY similar in design – hers has a little more lacieness but hey a pattern in hand is worth … well whatever

    anyway, just bought it – and also curious as to why no paypal? just wondering cuz its so easy .

    oh well now to shop the stash – hmmm. maybe that Peruvian Baby Cashmere i’ve been saving.

  40. kerrie says:

    That is just beautiful Bonne Marie. I love it. I only wish that there were more time to knit.. x

  41. Cathy says:

    ok ok, just wait til I finish Cece! hmm, I have some Cash Iroha in the stash, might be perfect for this.

  42. jessica~ says:

    Oh, no! It’s gorgouse! Now that just throws off my WHOLE list of next knits to knit!

  43. Elizabeth says:

    Wow, it’s just gorgeous. I really want to knit this! But I already have waaaay too many projects on my list. But the lace stripes, the big buttons, the collar, the delicate little tie, all are calling out to me….

  44. Teresa says:

    That is freakin’ GORGEOUS!!

  45. Macoco says:

    The sweater is beautiful. I love the delicate look of it. Maybe I’ll try this one next after I finish my Ribbi Cardi ;)

  46. diva says:

    Just in time for ChristmaHanuKwanza!
    My sister is going to flip. (And I might just have to make one for myself to…because I’ve only been a little bit naughty this year.)
    ; )
    You knocked another one outta the park BonneMarie. Good on ya, girl!

  47. Cara says:

    Beautiful! Congratulations Bonne Marie! It’s just lovely.

  48. shannon says:

    I am in the middle of my first ribby cardi, and my sister started hers after she saw mine in mid-knit…and now we’re going to have to make this one! It think it’s going to cut in line in front of the ribby shell that I was supposed to have finished for the fall. I love your designs, they are so pretty.
