Years ago I bought a bright pink cabled pullover from the Gap. I don't know if it ever fit properly, but now it's about 3 inches too short, and if I'm honest, the crew neck isn't all that flattering. It's still in my closet because I love the classic, preppy style of it and I can't bear to let it go. I never wear it, but I want to. Once a year or so, I try it on thinking that magically it will have gotten longer. It hasn't, so back into the closet it goes...except this year. This year, it's sitting on top of my dresser as a reminder that it needs to go. So this year, I'm replacing it with something that actually fits.

Months ago, I found Shifting while browsing on Ravelry. I mentally tucked it away and decided that someday I would knit it. Then I started seeing it everywhere on Ravelry. KALs in a few groups, popping up repeatedly in my friends feed, and lots of chatter in the forums I read. I couldn't get it out of my head and I decided to knit my own Shifting ASAP.

If you follow me on Instagram, you have probably seen my Shifting progress photos. I decided to make my version with a scoop neck, since I don't find crew necks flattering on me. I'm using Madelinetosh Tosh Sport in Vintage Sari for another twist on the shade of pink. Vintage Sari is an orangy-pink with hints of brown. It's grown up version of that bright pink pullover I love so much. So far, I love it. I'm about to start the bottom ribbing and then I'm on to sleeve island. I'm hoping it will be a short stay because our weather has turned cold and I'd love to wear it soon.
