I picked up the fall issue of Vogue Knitting this week. It’s got a lot of great patterns in it this time.
And I couldn’t resist. I bought enough KidSilk Haze to knit the lace circular jacket – it’s shown in navy, right under the words Ethereal Girl. (I bought Trance, which is a gorgeous tealy blue green. Yum!)
This pattern is very similar to one that was in the spring issue of Rowan magazine last year (#45) called Honeysuckle by Sarah Hatton. That one, though, was really large, more like a coat. It also had seven sections instead of five, which maybe made it more full. Although it was lovely, I wasn’t sure I’d wear it. This shorter cardi version I can imagine myself wearing a lot.
Plus I’m feeling the need to knit LACE right now, in a very big way. I’ve been matching my stash with patterns, and I think this is going to be a lacey winter. Anyone want to join me in a lace KAL? We could finish up some wips and begin on September 1.
What do you think?
