Knitty + Greek = Friday

Greetings:

As I pass the final minutes before I head over to cash my latest paycheck (The best perk of being employed) and Greek Fest 2006 >SQUEEEEE<, I decided to post my thoughts about the Fall issue of Knitty

Patterns:

Viveka
Not to sure about the color of the edging, nor the way the body is shapped, but the sleves are gorgeous and amazing. Maybe, if I ever get good enough down the line, Ill design a sweater with a body that I like, but with those sleeves

Lucie
eh, its ok. Probably never knit/wear it.

Cactus Flower
This is more MY style; loose, yet flattering. I love everything about it, but perhaps a darker red for the whole thing. And have the collar and the sweater all the same color

IVY
I just don't like sweaters with that type of closure. Period. End of story

Serrano
This is an absolutely gorgeous cardigan. I think it is the answer to my "perfect work cardi" search. I would have to alter the closure, all those little hooks would drive me batty after a while

Avast
I like this one, too. My only concern is that the yarn is too dark to show off the pattern.

Sherwood
This is a very cute sweater. It reminds me of something out of Eragon

Intolerable Cruelty
The corset detailing on the back is not my style, neither are the colors (pink = bleeck)

Little Slip of a Thing
I could see myself doing that, but in different colors. Maybe a Gryffindor or UCF color scheme.

Lizard Ridge
This is a gorgeous blanket, but looks wicked hard. Plus, I would never, EVER use Kureyon.

Red Herring
I love this pattern, but I would use contrasting, or even HP house colors for it.

Cablenet
ooooooooooooooooooooo, this is pretty. Myabe I found the socks that Raven's yarn is destine to be???

Sox on 2 stix
This is a brilliant pattern, and one that I would like to try one day.

Diamante
This is a decent and cute pattern. Being that both my sister's and my mom's feet are large, I could see myself using this pattern for them. ooooooooooooooooooooooooooo, these are toe-ups. Maybe not then.

Ayla
I like this pattern, since colorwork gives me the heebee-geebees. The choice of color would HAVE to change. Ooooooooooo, green back round, blue flower with yellow center.

Sugar on Snow
eh, its ok. I guess u have to be somewhere where it snows to appreciate it.

Tamarah
eh >shrugs<

Twiggy Tweed
I like it, just not in those colors

Back to School
These are the beez kneez. They are the cutest!

Peace out and OPA!!!!
