Ooooo! I like that book Vintage Styles for Today! I might have to buy that one!


Love that "V" wrap thingie. Kind of gothic if crocheted in black or blood red. I really need to look into crocheting a garmet or two - don't know if my wrist could take it though.


You have such good taste (um... I'm giving you a pass on the shrug). The top two pictures look great (the first reminds me of the cover photo from one of the Adrienne Vittadini books that I want to make). I especially like how nice the updated vest looks (yes, it's true to the original, but somehow, it's much better. Maybe it's the shape of the woman wearing it... in the vintage one, the poor thing looks like she's wearing a VERY draconian corset).


I need to take a look at that book. The cover sweater is cute.


Marie- I think it would look great in black. :) I'm committed to a little stash reduction, so it'll be taupe for me, though!

Leisel - if they hadn't pictured it in grey, I think you'd like it better. :::Grin::: I'm thinking for a nice, slouchy sweater to wear around the house without a lot of bulk in front. I'm going to make it in something cheaper (Like Caron) and see what I think.

Vera - Lots & lots of cute stuff inside too. Definitely check it out. :)


I like the Poet's Shrug. It reminds me of a bed jacket. It looks like it would be worm and comfy for knitting or reading on a cold night.


That's what I was thinking, Pam.:) I really don't like to bundle up in my own house, but something like this would leave my arms & front free. :) Now I just need to find a nice, kinda jazzy color. ::grin:::


Okay... I admit that the dead elephant skin grey did not help. I can also see it as being nice and snuggly and a good thing to throw on in the evening while you're watching TV to keep you warm. But I still don't think it's an attractive shape, and I could never see myself wearing it outside the house.


You are Bron the Enabler!

I brought the book today, and I have enough Microspun in stash to make the cardigan on the cover.


I had to laugh when I read your blog today - I just posted this book and your first 2 sweaters on my blog - these are the 2 that made me buy this book - I must compliment your excellent taste!


I looked at the book yesterday. So many cut patterns. I also like the Romantic Cardigan.
