It's up! It's up!

I think this is one issue where I will have to reserve judgement till I see the actual magazine. It's hard to tell from the small pictures

Oooh, thanks for posting this, Celia. I love IK, but must admit I'm kind of relieved that nothing in this issue is going to derail me from my other WIPs (two of which are IK patterns anyway!). I do like the Pearl Buck jacket -- at least the part of it that's shown -- and the Embossed Leaves socks.

Those mukluks, though . . . yowza.

Karen, I'm with you. I like the PB jacket and the socks. Also the Aran Pullover.

Hm - a few more to add to the list! I have been hunting for a simple ballet wrap - bingo - there it is! I also like the 4-3-2 sweater. It's a little different. Being that I have never done Fair Isle before, that Fair Isle 101 is tempting too, but in different colors. Thank goodness it will be a little while until I get it! (plus, it looks like some KnitPicks yarns will work for some of them - another excuse to buy!!)

Me too, although I don't think the Aran would look so drapey on me. I don't have quite so many "innies" as she does.

Hard to tell of course about the sweaters seen only from the back, but in addition to the Pearl Buck and the Aran, I'm going to want to take a closer look at the Bicolored Cable jacket by Annie Modesitt and the Winter Star swing jacket.

Okay, if the model looks like a brick shaped chunk in the photos (4-3-2 Ribbed Pullover and Ballet Wrap) how the heck am I supposed to avoid being plastered into a house?

i really like the aran and the bi-color cables jacket. I'd also like to see another picture of the 4-3-2 sweater, it appeals to me.

Apropos of GFTC's comment -- anyone remember this ditty?

Do your boobs hang low?
Do they wobble to-and-fro?
Can ya tie 'em in a knot?
Can ya tie 'em in a bow?
Can ya throw 'em over your shoulder
Like a Continental soldier?
Do your boobs --- hang --- low?

Interweave always excels at putting out unique and styling projects . . . but the pom pom Christmas tree? Oh, please don't go there . . . anyone could come up with a tree or plaster pom poms around a cup . . . this is mindless stuff and it is not knitting . . .

I really love those mukluks... perfect for a weekend in a ski chalet in the Rockies... too bad I won't get this issue in time for my upcoming ski weekend... DANG. The Teva Durham cardi looks pretty, even though the pic is small. Love the socks, love the hats, belted wrap jacket looks nice and warm for my FREEZING office. Looking forward to it.

(ya, WHAT is with knitted ties? no man *I* know would ever wear one. then again, the men I know aren't really into normal ties anyways... )

To be honest/most observant I do not think she is even wearing one.

Uh, we sang that as 'do your ears hang low'. Maybe my mom was just trying to "protect" us?

But that girl does indeed need a bra!

I fell in love with the mukluks! I'm thinking I'll need them in Wisconsin!

I hope the Pearl Buck and Winter Star jackets come in larger sizes! I love both of them!

Amie, both of the projects you mention are on the same model, who doesn't seem quite as sylphic as the others. Part of me wishes they'd use more women like her as models...then I wouldn't be as disappointed when I don't look like the model in my version of the project. Sigh.

I did notice it was the same model, but they didn't choose the most flattering sweaters for her. Who wants to wear a wrap - putting double thickness around the waist - when one is slightly thick in the waist? And on the 4-3-2, moving her right arm forward six inches would work wonders for the photo....

I love the PB jacket, the BiColored Cables sweater, and the Alaskan in me cannot resist the mukluks! It's been a while since I was tempted to knit anything from IK, maybe this signals a knitting binge for me.

OH !@#$%^&*
Dang it, Kate Gilbert designed one of the jackets I've drawn out in my sketch book- or very nearly it. Soooo gorgeous... but I'm somewhat sad, someday I was going to fully design it and wow the world with it- argh. Instead, I might just knit hers... hmm... it's soooo loverly.
I AM IN LOVE WITH THE KRISTEN NICHOLAS SWEATER. I'd make it as a mock turtleneck, though.
And love the ballet wrap
and the fair isle 101, looovvinnngg the neckline
can't wait for this issue
