if you are a follower of yarny things, particularly knitting on pinterest... well you've probably noticed a trend in cardigans. yep. i'm talking about them again. i had sooo much fun with the KAL hosted by my pal shannon of luvinthemommyhood, that i'm already thinking cardi's again :)
brooklyn tweed... you've heard of him, right? of course you have.... well he's just come out with an incredible release of fall patterns. soooo lovely, smooshy, cosy, full of colour.. well you get the idea. i'm drooling here. no kidding.
here are my top two faves... and there is no coincidence that they just might be the same colour... and maybe also in the same colour family as my rae.. no.. no coincidence at all.
this sweater, the peabody is designed by leila raabe. i know it's not a cardi, but ohhh it's a nice sweater!!! i love love the detail of it! seriously, isn't it gorgeous!!! i can soooooo see myself wearing this. i love the balance of lacework and stockinette. it's really something i feel like could be worn both casually and to dress up a little.... and it really doesn't look all that difficult! what do you think?
and the other??
i've had my eye on an "old man sweater" totally forgive me for this choice of wording, but i think you know what i mean, right? i think this is lovely... the pattern is tinder, by jared flood. well now, you can't go wrong can you? this is stunning in such a simple way! i want to wear this now.
now realistically, i can't afford the yarn recommended.. but i'm sure that before long, i'll see some wonderful substitutes! one day, when i get a chance to knit with shelter yarns. ... i promise you'll probably be one of the first to know!! :)
want to see more of this line? jared flood came out with a webzine just yesterday!!! go check it out!! (but then come back)
and your thoughts? well i'm honestly dying to know!!!! let's have a cozy sweater chat, shall we?
how are you doing today? has the fall weather kicked in for you? are you in sweater mode? what are your faves? i'm waiting on you!!! can't wait to chat. xo
