I am thinking of buying one of the kits as a Christmas gift to myself. My knitting tends along the traditional, blend-in, matchy-matchy lines and I would like to see how a stunning change of style suits me.

Any advice or ideas? I have not settled on a particular kit and my choice will somewhat depend on what my favorite yarn shop is able to get for me.

The patterns that I have seen are well written. Many have both vibrant and muted color combinations. My advice is find one you like and go for it.

You're right. It's not brain surgery! I'm ordering "Diva" because I love a portrait collar, and because the sleeve is set in, giving a smoother line at the underarm. (I have some Scandinavian sweaters with drop sleeves that have so much fabric bunched up there. I don't have the Viking shoulders to handle that much fabric.)
