Knitty's Winter Surprises are up. And although I don't think either one is in my future, I like them both.
Click on the picture to see Layers in all its nerdy glory. I love the fact that Ryan Marnell is a high school kid designing. Our future is looking brighter, already, isn't it? I wore this look myself. In the 70s. Yeah, but it didn't look this cool.
Another 70s look, one that I may make, oh, let's say next winter, is Starsky. Notice when you click for the bigger picture the banana leaf cables. Notice the cozy length. It makes me want to feather my hair and wear lip gloss. Oh, wait, I do that already (the gloss, not the feathers!). These longer sweaters were pretty stylish about four years ago. I had one I loved but gave it away because of some sad things that happened while I was wearing it. Jordana Paige may have given me a way to redeem myself with the longer sweater, though. I think this one could become a classic.
In summary, fun stuff from Knitty. Of the two Winter Surprises, I think I'd be most likely to knit Starsky, mostly because I would wear it until it didn't fit or got worn out!
