Image courtesty of Interweave Knits
The Fall Preview of IK is up!! Yay! Something to look forward to! I think my favorite sweater out of the preview so far is the Mirepoix Bodice, though I think I’d prefer it in reds and pinks. I’m definitely not up to speed on the whole color work thing yet though. Good thing I’ve got a bazillion other projects to do first so I won’t spoil the dream of that sweater by attempting it right away. I can drool over it a bit longer before reality kicks in. What? You mean I need about 500 balls of yarn in different colors? And each one costs $9? And you’re telling me I have to knit with them all? Yeah, like that kind of reality. Ditto on those Snowflake Socks too.
I’m also loving this pattern after getting a preview from DreamWeaver Yarns. Oddly, it’s a StitchDiva pattern and I couldn’t find it on their site yesterday. What’s the deal with that? Anyway, I really really really, want to knit this! Oh yeah – did I mention I really want to knit this sweater?
The red one really caught my eye and I feel I have to knit that one for sure. If the pattern’s simple enough I may go for the longer sleeved version as well. I never seem to have enough cardis and these are so beautifully retro.
O.k. Enough dreaming for today…..
