I love planning fall projects and love it even more when I am surprised by the creativity of a simple classic pullover with three not so classic modifications. Barnstorm by Joan Forgione, works a bottom up pullover with simple colorwork in Quince & Co.'s Owl and gives you a split hem along with a belled split cuff and what looks like a simple ribbing pattern on the neck, cuffs and hem broken up with an errant row of purls. This one is a keeper!

What a stunning color work subject created by ducatista on Ravelry, in black and white fingering weight yarn. Her muse, Fair-Isle and Norwegian pattern books take a simple two-color palette to create a masterpiece. There is no pattern for this, only notes of 128 stitches provisionally cast on and approximately 690 yards each color and let your imagination drive. www.ravelry.com/projects/ducatista/contrast ...

We talked about how popular tweeds are this winter only last week and are so happy to have added Rowan Felted Tweed DK for this fall. This Italian blend of wool, alpaca and viscose lends itself to a soft semi-draped fabric perfect for Heidi Kirrmaier's Peasy, Churchmouse's Easy Folded Poncho, Brooklyn Tweed's Guernsey Wrap and the adorable Knit Sleepy Fox from Amanda Michelle (nevernotknitting's project shown))

What do you do while you are supposed to be doing paperwork? You let one click lead you to a blog site of pure excitement and the paperwork becomes a memory. Simple Lines by Simone Alexandra is quietly calling my name. I think I'll grab a few skeins of Isager Alpaca 2 for Sunday night's viewing of the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel 2.
