Fall Knitting

From the Fall 2008 Issue of Vogue Knitting here is my list of must knits: First up: Potpourri by Tanis Gray. While blogging around the other day, I found out that Eat.Sleep.Knit has a kit containing all the materials to make the design in the magazine. The problem is, I'm not sure I want to make them in this colorway. I took a class a couple of years ago to learn how to do this, and it's about time to put the knowledge to work. And frankly -! Wouldn't they look fabulous in colors to match my wool coat? Next up: Greenland by Robin Melanson. I really like this little top. I think it would be easy to wear. It's knit out of blue sky alpacas melange. In my quick search, kpixie (second link) had the best price and the colors are great! For my size, this is still an expensive sweater - taking 15 hanks at $8.50/hank. UGH! Pretty though and will get knit.
Last Up is Neutral Territory by Gayle Bunn. The problem with this cardigan is that is made out of a bulky yarn. I don't need more added bulk. However, it would be nice to have in the office. My office is the same as everyone else's - terminally frigid. During the summer it feels as if we are working in a morgue, it's that cold. So a bulky cardigan would be fabulous.
Have you picked up an issue yet? What's on your must knit list?


  1. Without my copy in hand, I can't tell you what I dog-eared, and -GASP - I haven't favorited anything in Ravelry yet so...

    I can tell you that this issue and the one my last swap pal ;) sent me are making me seriously consider subscribing!

  2. I just picked up my issue last night. I'm in love with Forestry and a few of the cabled sweaters in the English Garden section. If you want to check out how Greenland and Neutral Territory look from the back, Vogue Knitting has posted videos of all of the sweaters from the Made in Canada section.

  3. WOW! Those look like great picks. I love love love the mittens. The colorwork will be so fun to do! Plus it's a portable project too :)

  4. I like those green mittens on the cover...can't think of the name right now, but you know what I'm talking about. lol

  5. Personally I like the Last Up Sweater and don't think it will add that much you will be toasty and warm. What color will you knit it in? I am definitely envious of your ability to knit such wonderful creations!


I appreciate you coming to see me. It may take me a bit to publish your comment - but I will get to them by the end of every day. If you leave a way for me to get back to you, I will. Thanks for taking the time to comment and share your opinions. g
