Strike a Pose–Vogue!

I promised to show everyone the sweaters I liked from Vogue Knitting Winter 2004/2005. So, here they are (you can click on the pictures to see more detail, but I am sure you already knew that):


I LOVE Adrienne Vittadini desgins. I think they are classic and stylish. I could wear this to work or out at night. I was thinking this yarn could be a good fit for the budget concious.


This is the epitome of classic. A nice silk blend would be awesome for this design.


This cardigan is supposed to be knit in Cashmere, but who really has the budget for that? I was thinking this or this doubled would work. Still cheaper than cashmere


I like this jacket, but I am still not sure if it will look good on me. But just in case, this should do.

Yeah, so the yarns I am considering for these projects is all from the Knit Picks collection. Why should I pay any more? I of course cannot purchase yarn right now, and I want to wait and see what everyone who has bought the yarn thinks. But why should I spend $15/ball or more when I can get half a sweater for that price?

I adore that zip up cardigan with the baby cables!! I think I might have just changed my mind about what to knit next!

I love the Adrienne Vittadini, too. I have a bag of Lana d’Oro in a deeper purple and I was thinking it would work. What do you think? It looks like such a cozy sweater… yum!!
