LYS - Little Yellow Sweater! I think, quite possibly a more important staple in ones wardrobe than a little black dress. Amiright?? I have always wanted an Ochre yellow little cropped cardigan to throw on over dresses and tunics or buttoned up and paired with high waisted skirts and trousers! Now - what color to knit one in next??
