It's official - Spring has sprung
The knitting community is taking notice of this and is constantly posting/reposting these gloriously enticing patterns that make me cringe inside. It's not nearly warm enough to be thinking about halters or tanks. Actually that's a lie, I've just bought this, this and this from work.
Okay, so now that I've ruined my credibility in saying that it's too early to be thinking spring.. here are those enticing patterns I was talking about. These first few are ones that deserve a second look.
Short Sleeve Blousant from Knit.1 Summer 07
This gorgeous one by Glory8
Silk Slip from Lingerie Style
Elliot Anne Spencer by Canary Sanctuary
This fantastic one is from Minabear She's also got this great cowl sweater I've been lusting after.
Cabled Long Cardi from Vogue Spring/Summer 08
Chop a few inches off the waistline and the hemline, add a few more buttons perhaps..
Here is a link to the full Vogue Spring/Summer Preview -LINK-
I'm not particularly bowled over by anything, but the second one in on the "urban outfitters" is allllllriiight. Those are the front runners for me. What are you looking to make this spring/summer?
I leave you with some toonage for toe tappin:
vampire weekend - a punk, oxford comma, cape cod, kwassa kwasaa, walcott
wilco - hate it here (fav, but everything they do is awesome)
american boy - estelle & kanye
digitalism - pogo, zdarlight, pulse, kingdom remix, idealism a-trak remix,
