I just picked up this magazine and while some of the designs in it are downright scary, there are a few that sparked my interest! You can see the whole issue previewed here on Vogue's site, but here are the projects I'm thinking about:
This pink cowl caught my eye because it reminds me of my new cowl design (which is well on its way to being published! yea!) and because the stitch pattern looks really interesting. I have a few more ideas in my mind for oversized cowls like these and infinity scarves, need to do some more sketching and swatching to weed out the winners from the losers before the trend has come and gone . . .
This little purple vesty thing is probably my favorite piece in the whole issue. I actually went stash-diving for appropriate yarn when I saw it! I remember the designer sweater that (I assume) inspired it and it caused quite the stir at the yarn shop a few years ago when we saw it on the runway. This little sweater changed a few things and in my opinion, is just as good, if not better, than the designer version. The more I look at it the more I want to knit it!
I feel like there was something else in this issue I liked but I don't see it on that preview page . . . maybe they didn't put all the patterns up? I don't have the magazine with me right now so I can't check either, and a quick look at Ravelry didn't jog my memory . . . if I remember what it was I'll update this post!
What about you, what are you considering knitting from the VK Holiday 2009 issue?
