Wow, that capecho is a Very Interesting design!

I see those interesting designs and say "wow" but in all reality and practicality, I would never wear something like that.

I like my sweaters to reach my waist (at least) or longer (especially at my age).

People in Wyoming are not very fashion conscious; after all, the horses and cattle are not impressed. hehe
It is a great compliment when someone says "You sure clean up good!" LOL

Have a great day everyone!


That Sandra sweater is incredible! It is a gem!


The math geek in me has to point it out: those hexagons? They're pentagons. ;)

Um... that "man's sweater" looks like it was knit by someone with really bad gauge issues, and possibly two patterns mixed together! I don't think the men *I* know would wear it. *I* certainly wouldn't! *shudder*


Hehehe - Andrea - you caught it before I could get back here & change it. ;)

And yeah - that man's sweater REALLY has me scratching my head!

Jillian - Since Sandra doesn't provide a frontal shot, I'm hoping it looks as good from the front as the side! LOL

Margaret - Yeah - back in Kansas people tend to wear things that look good out in a wheat field! LOL


I had the same reactions as you to many of the VK items. You know I'm a Norah junkie; and I liked and would wear the front-tie cardi. I like the blue cabled man's sweater and would make it for my dad; the other 3 men's sweaters were ridiculous and no male of my acquaintance would "clamor to wear" them. The intarsia florals are pretty - I especially love the blue ones - but Hate intarsia knitting. Hope your weekend is less stressful!


Hi Bron! I gained weight over the holidays too. Almost 10 lbs! I was at 90 lbs lost and now back near 80. But I am trying to get myself back on track like you! Well I never stopped exercising but gotta cut out the cookies! Good luck to you too and can't wait to see what of those beautiful things you make :)


Our local newsagents is getting more and more knitting mags in stock which is great, but the majority of them I just flick through and think - where are the real clothes?? Some of the jumpers (sweaters) are knitted in such thick wool with such huge cables they'd make the average woman look like the Michelin man. Yeah that jacket/cardi whatever it is, looks interesting, but a bit too weird for me. I'm of the old K-I-S-S school of thought when it comes to design!!
