Hooded Scarf?

Another designer piece to copy? (and grey again, maybe that's the trend I'm really drawn to . . . ) This scarf has pockets on the ends, which is nothing new to us knitters, and a hood in the middle, which has also been done but is far from commonplace -- and I've never seen a knitting pattern for one that I actually wanted to make. Considering I'm knitting my 4th cowl right now, I guess I have winter accessories on the brain!

I think what makes this hooded scarf particularly effective is how thin the material is and how oversized the proportions are (it's 10" wide x 8' long).

What say you?

Fall Knitwear

Looks like there is going to be tons of knitwear in the stores this fall! I just saw this awesome dress from Marc Jacobs:

Doesn't this look like the perfect fall dress? I have some very thin cashmere in the stash that might just be perfect . . .
