So I thought I would "share", cos that's the kind of person I am :o)
New in at Sewbox: Liberty jersey, organic jersey, Liberty silk and some amazing Alexander Henry prints on a super-silky tana-lawn-like base fabric - ooooh!
I am SO tempted to make a silk Sencha, or that bow-neck blouse from Burda Feb 2008.
This is "January" paisley silk - mmmm!
They have several of these deep, dark, mysterious autumnal prints - not at all the "usual" ditsy florals.
I really like the midnight-blue jersey called "November": it would make a fab long-sleeved top.
In the world of Knit, I pre-ordered "Brave New Knits" by Julie Turjoman.
Strangely, the designers featured in this amazing book don't seem to be trumpeting about it yet. It is one of those books that I just had to have, immediately. And knit everything in it... yesterday!
26 patterns by the "best" knitting bloggers, with supporting interviews by Julie Turjoman, and photos by Jared Flood!
I will be knitting the socks on the front cover
using a mix of variegated and plain green sock wools from Lidl, bought with the weekly grocery shop on Friday (I blame Kate!).
But there's also a beautiful lace shawl by Ysolda, a sculptural cabled jacket, Krookus, by Mari (who designed Sylvie, coat of my dreams), an Origami shawl / cardigan by Melissa Wehrle, a simple shawlette by Jared Flood (pattern free here!). Actually, I just discovered lots of pictures on Jared's blog here. Don't you just want to give up work and spend a year knitting your way through this book... or is that just me?
