The new Interweave preview is up!

Go see it!

On first glance my favorite design is the cable down raglan

I love the way the cables emphasize the waist in the back.  I also like both the cardigans , but I’m on a bit of a cardigan kick lately, so that shouldn’t be a surprise.

The shawlette is an interesting idea.  I like the idea of ends that are easy to tie around your shoulders, as I’m forever fixing my shawls.  I like Grumperina’s socks and the raglan as well, but I’m not excited enoug to post pictures.

I want to like this design but I dunno… I just don’t get the back.   I don’t like shirts with overly bare backs, as I’m not so fond of my own bony specimen.  I’m also not sure that I get the idea of making really open weaved tank tops I don’t like the 2 different sets of straps or the different lengths.  I will knit tanks, but the fabric needs to be pretty tight.

Overall it looks like a good issue.  Oh Interweave… why must you tease me with your previews a month in advance!

I finished the “not so shrunken cardigan” and it’s drying and awaiting buttons.  I already sewed buttons onto the Jess jacket, and I should get pictures today.  I’m so pleased with how these have both come out!

My cat wants to sleep on my blocking.  I fail to understand why the cat that hates even being in a room with running water would be perfectly happy to lie on a sopping wet sweater for a nap… but there you go.  He loves it.  In fact, he tried to gnaw on my Jess jacket this afternoon, but fortunately I caught him in time.

One thought on “The new Interweave preview is up!

  1. Ah, Interweave, why must you tempt us so?

    Don’t they realize we can’t knit that fast! I’m still working on a IK fall 06 sweater.

    I agree with you about the backless tank. Only for those who don’t have to wear bras I guess.

    BTW, your Jess jacket looks great!
