Knitty 2008 Fall Review

Hey youguys! Sorry for late post. Since last post, my fall class started september and busy working and studying. The fall is here and last week, weather was cool down to 70 in CA. I can feel a fall is finally coming soon. I planning to knitting scarf soon since weather gets colder here can't wait to wear hand knit scarf.

Anyway, on yesterday, I saw Ravery forum on Knitty group, about the fall new pattern. Guess what? Did youguys guess? Finally
NEW Knitty fall has published this week.

First of all, same as usual... In my opinion, in this fall issue was beautiful and urban style feel. All the fall patterns are really charming and useful. GO OVER to

One of my three favorite picks of Knitty fall pattern is "
Retrofit" by Jesse Loesberg . I think everbody knows who is Jesse. He is first guy desiger featured in Knitty issues. Many of his design such as famous "Danica" Entrelac scarf, "Halfdome" hat and "Avast" zip-up sweater. You guys can see his blog here at Yarnboy blog.

I really like this simple zip-up sweater. It's dark color on the main body and lighter color on sleeves and necks to shows silmless and sensual feel. Great versatile sweater any time.

Next, "Baroque" by Janice Kang. I Know.. It's sounds like a great pair of stitch pattern for the fall weather, Don't you think? In this fall knitty issue, can't belive there is total four socks pattern in this issue. One of pattern that I think this can also great men socks too. Love the design of cable going on the leg and cable on the end of toes.

Best of last, I think this awesome "Morgan" English driving cap is the hit for this fall knitty issue. It's stylish an any yarns works on this cap. Also it is great thing, cap is knit up in one piece and only requires the most minimal of grafting. Can't wait to cast this hat.
