One Suitcase: Winter Vacation Wardrobe

Notes

It looks like I need to knit a couple of items (a cable knit sweater and mustard scarf), and start looking to fill some of the other missing ones.

One of the main things I noticed is that my current closet lacks layering pieces. I prefer sweaters with little or no ease, but I need more diversity if I want to mix and match pieces more easily.

I need to spend some time thinking before I buy anything, but I’m looking forward to completing this set by next year.
