Fall Previews and Stuff

Previews for both Interweave Knits and Vogue Knitting are up for the fall issues!

Interweave Preview
Vogue Preview

The Vogue one is interesting in that they have put all the cover sweaters on the website for free download! Some are definitely not my style, but many have interesting elements! (love the pattern in the colorwork dress!)

Knitting continues here, and not to leave the sock needles naked for too long, I have cast on for a pair for hubby.

Tiny Toes Ribbing
Only ribbing so far. Still deciding on a pattern. The yarn is Interlacements Tiny Toes in color #220. Nice, bright, rich colors.

Marjan has knit some amazing socks (check them out here). When I heard her plight that she still had not received her Ravelry invite, I sent her off one of the two I had. With those beautiful designs, she should be there! In return, she sent me some wonderful new sock yarn!
Gift from Marjan
I hadn't seen this yarn in person yet - it's the new Regia Kaffe Fassett yarn. Very nice colors and it stripes! This will be great for a pair of basic stripey socks. Maybe one of those fancy picot edges too...
