Interweave Knits Spring 2008: My Say

Its one of those magazines, which I have 4-5 patterns, that I will knit from. I couldn't say much about the designs till I found the magazine resting on the seater when I reached home last night.

And I'd queued the following on my ravelry account.
Printed Silk Cardigan
I thought I do buy the exact yarn in another color. The price is a little too scary and would end up a hole in my bank account. There were discussions on the yarn subsitution on Ravelry. Possible candidate :
Frog Tree Pima Silk - have not try this before so no comments. Thought this might give good stitch definition.
SWTC Bamboo - I wouldn't use any of this. Bamboo stretches a lot, unless you like your cardigan to go out of shape after just one wash?
Blue Sky Alpaca & Silk - This would work but I'm not looking for something that's woolly.
Debbie Bliss Pure Silk - This would burnt another hole since I need to add a few more skeins to complete the cardigan.

Drawstring Chemise
I always have cotton yarns in the stash, this would be on the needles the moment Fern Path Stole is done.

Cobweb Lace Stole
I like the way its different from conventional stoles I had knitted so far.

Bleeding Hearts Stole
I had always admired Anne Hanson's designs, especially her Japanese Feather Stole, which is also on my queue.

Ladylike Gloves by Eunny looks interesting enough.

At first this issue did not grab me that much. But the more I look at it, I love the cardigan that you like. I cannot wait to see how yours turns out.
