New Winter Vogue!

The new winter Vogue just arrived and it's chock full of projects for your second season of knitting! Now that the holidays are over, and you're ready to knit for you, here's some ideas from our friends at Vogue.
This fair isle scarf is knit in Creative Focus Worsted, a single ply wool and mohair blend that is a Rosie's staff favorite. Perfect for the kids, or yourself!

Jared Flood is at it again. This time it's gloves, not mittens on the agenda. These beautifully and thoughtfully constructed mittens are knit using Rowan Scottish Tweed DK which we have in stock ready for you to knit! I love how the cable crosses on the hand merge into the cables on the fingers. Well designed gloves are a thing of beauty.

This coat is knit using Sublime Cashmere Merino Silk Aran, one of my favorite yarns this season. The body is knit in a slip stitch herringbone pattern that is much simpler than it looks. I can't even begin to describe the construction on this brilliant design by Julie Hines. The side panels are knit seperatley and then the right and left front panels are knit congruently with the sleeves, sort of...It's amazing. You'll have to see for yourself!

And finally, for the Koigu junkies out there, is this cabled jacket knit out of Kersti. We just got a shipment of new KPPPM and Kersti colors last Friday so take advantage of all the color selection now! This is definitely going in my queue.
This issue also includes great articles on the Elizabeth Zimmerman Snail Hat, a ridiculous hat we are all fans of, a designer bio on Sandra Backlund whose sweaters are more sculpture than garment and more!
