I didn't buy any patterns and no yarn arrived this week. Next week will be a different story since there is a box heading this way from Seattle.
Although I didn't buy any patterns, it doesn't mean I didn't want to. This year I've been trying not to buy any patterns unless they're on sale or it's a project I know I'm going to make. This week the new Twist Collective Fall 2013 collection came out. The Fall edition always has lovely sweaters...with cables. I love cables! Although I must confess that I have never knit anything with such elaborate, all-over cables like some of these. There were several gorgeous sweaters that I put in my favorites, such as:
Rafters is a cardigan, and it's my favorite from this collection. Look at those gorgeous cables!!! Bonus is it's top-down.
Ossel is gorgeous but it's a dress pattern. It's knit from the bottom-up so I could probably turn it into a sweater length. I love how the Moss stitch looks with the cables.
Svanhild is a turtleneck....perfect for the cold Wisconsin winter.
I like the cables on the sleeves and sides of Farthingale. I'm not a fan of lace on pullovers though, so I would knit it without the lace on the front and back.
Last, but not least is Foxcroft. I like everything about this except for the collar. I'm not a fan of such large collars. This one might be worth trying to figure out how to change it to a regular neckband.
