So many sweaters…

Cablesweater While innocently roaming around the supermarket yesterday, I spied the latest Vogue Knitting and Interweave Knits – I know, where have I been.  At one point I subscribed to both of these publications, but let those subscriptions go several years ago since I thought their content was crap.  I think there were several interesting articles in both magazines, but I never ever ever made a single sweater from any of them.  Never.  Well I picked up both in the magazine aisle yesterday and while I still wouldn’t make any of the Interweave sweaters, I did like the concept of their Sunrise Circle Jacket, I’d be a bit worried about the drape of the knitted fabric.  Ironically, this pattern is offered online and not in their magazine.  There was a cute pattern for a fingerless glove, but this magazine costs $7 and I think I can manage to make up my own pattern for a fingerless glove.Construction3

On to Vogue Knitting.  I think the cable yoke sweater is pretty and has an interesting use of cabling.  There was a thought provoking article on using deconstructionist techniques to make some very interesting textures.  This was the winner in the magazine purchasing sweepstakes.

Of course before embarking on a new sweater, I’ve got to finish the Olympic bolero.  The knitting was completed yesterday, and a small amount of finishing still needs to be done, but this puppy is almost done.  That still leaves the cormo top down cardigan that’s been under construction for ages and the Phildar Shearling sweater that is only needs a collar knitted up and sewing together.  I’ve even got the buttons in my hot little hands…So here I pledge, I will finish at least 2 out of 3 sweaters before beginning a new one.  Stop laughing.  I’m serious dammit.  I’m new shoes and handbag serious.  See how I threw down there…
