Elise Fall 2011 Knitcircus

The fall 2011 Knitcircus is being released today, including my pullover pattern Elise (here on Ravelry)!  This issue has some gorgeous patterns.  And if I had kids, they’d definitely be running around like little giraffes in Twiga.  (Think I can adapt one to fit Rigel??)

I also really like Totem – it’s a great guy’s sweater — and Pteridia from Susanna IC (not that she ever does anything that’s not gorgeous).

I now understand all the brouhaha about Madtosh. This stuff is delicious, guys, if you’ve not yet tried it. The colors are gorgeous & rich and the yarn is incredibly soft. (I’ll be interested in seeing how it holds up.)

Here’s all the pertinent pattern stuff  for Elise:

    This is such a pretty sweater! I loved Elise from the moment I saw it on Rav and had no idea that you designed it! :)
