Ready, Set, Knit!

It’s starting to feel cooler outside, some of our favorite shows are starting up again, and we’ve all got fashion week on the brain. We say bring on the super cozy, helplessly fashionable, and totally gift-able knitting projects! Here are some sneak peeks into what our season holds:

Luxe Knits: The Accessories, Laura Zukaite’s fantastic follow-up to Luxe Knits, presents an array of accessories, all created in the most sumptuous yarns on the market. These stunning scarves, hats, gloves, bags, and more are what Laura calls “memorable little statement pieces to decorate our lives…” and maybe make our less crafty friends a bit jealous? High-fashion photography and the author’s own sketches offer extra eye-candy!

Whether in a chunky knit or dainty lace, capelets, cowls, and collars have been storming the runways for the past few seasons…. now you can fashion your own with Knit & Wrap.  There are romantic capelets that float and flutter about, bold collars, and high-drama cowls that frame the face when worn slipped over the head or that drape elegantly when pushed down. Oh, and try some bonus projects here!

Are you suffering from the Mad Men complex? Stuck wondering “what would Joanie wear”? So are we! Get your fix with Vintage Fashion Knitwear, a stunning collection that celebrates 100 years of couture knitwear, and the iconic designs that defined each decade. For each era, there’s an overview of the most noteworthy designers, and coverage of important themes such as knit structure, fiber, silhouette, garment construction, pattern, and color.
