Missoni Madness

On September 13, Target introduced products designed by Missoni (clothes, accessories, home decor...)   I arrived in Washington DC on September 14 hoping to grab a few items, but sadly everything (except a few baby things) were gone.  It was like it never happened and apparently, Target's website crashed due to the heavy traffic from other Missoni fanatics.

I love Missoni, ever since I saw a pattern in my very first Vogue Knitting magazine, but in reality, I don't have the budget to actually buy an authentic Missoni item.

So, I do what any other knitter would do.  I knit myself some Missoni!

My Missoni-inspired Cardigan
Four skeins of Noro Furisode and the pattern Liesl, my Missoni wannabe cardigan was born.
I stashed more Noro Furisode in other colorways and thinking about something with zig-zags... a wrap, a jacket, a dress?
