It's up. Oh dear.

the web exclusive pattern...WTF???? I'm cold, I need a sweater, but I don't want my boobs to get too hot???

Gina said...

Yes, "oh dear" is a perfect sentiment.

I'm not sure whazzup with the color-themed sections. So many of those garments *only* have the color in common...

And I'm with Archaeoknits, but need to know if you can add rows to the bottom of that piece, depending on how many children you've had... or what decade you're in?!?

This magazine has forgotten that its name is Vogue.

I like a couple of the red sweaters in the first grouping (the least dolman-y weird ones), but the rest...yikes! I also do not get the boob-baring web exclusive "sweater."

Um, I like the scarves? However, the web exclusive "boob baring" shrug? sweater? stomach freeing after buffet eating piece of clothing? What is it?

Well, at least the collection aren't quite as dreadful as I feared after your "oh, dear" and the earlier commenters' remarks. Some of the solid-color designs seem to have useable textures and shaping ideas. I'll withhold judgement until I see the actual mag (interesting that recent issues of VK and IK both looked better in hard copy than in online previews).

That web-exclusive is incomprehensible, though. Or wait-- did they shoot the pic when the model hadn't finished pulling the garment on yet?

And this is why I don't subscribe to Vogue Knitting. Also, I'm scared.

I hope they mean it with the "web exclusive" - key word being "exclusive," as in "don't ever do that again."

Meg said...

So many new patterns, so much Thursday fodder. Good luck choosing.

Still with the ponchos?....

The knitted dark gray ruffles around the model's neck belongs in the Thursdays Are For What The Hell Is This? column.
