Brighten Up Winter with Color Knitting!

Jan 7, 2013

I love winter, but sometimes I miss the colors of summer. How do I remedy this? With color knitting, of course.

There are so many colorful knits to make, how do you choose? That's where Interweave Knits comes in! Here are some of my favorites from the Winter 2012 issue of Knits:

Professor Jackson's Scarf by Ivete Tecedor Pheobe's Vest Daniella Nii
Molly's Carpetbag by Cricket Toomey Snowbird Capelet by Andrea Babb

Designer Ivete Tecodor pumped up a houndstooth pattern in Professor Jackson's Scarf. It's a striking take on a classic. Phoebe's Vest is Daniella Nii's take on the schoolgirl vest; columns of broken rib and striped bands lend a little college prep.

I absolutely love Molly's Carpetbag. Cricket Toomey's subtle colorwork pattern and leather trim make a it luxurious take on an old standby. The Snowbird Capelet is like a sun break on a cold, cloudy day. Andrea Babb uses pops of color to brighten up a snowy motif.

Pretty fun projects, right? Subscribe to Interweave Knits today and get some color into your life!

I really get amused when Kathleen talks about color I have hopes that she really means COLOR. But alas, they are always pale versions.  I have always liked real colors and mostly knit with bright ones. I hope I'm not the only one.

I couldn't resist the snowflower socks.   I had to shorten the foot a little, but they fit just perfectly now.   I really liked the fit of the heel shaping.    It is a bit too hot here in Australia to wear them at present, but I look forward to showing them off come autumn.

I think the capelet and the vest are my favorite patterns here. Both look straight out of a page of an Anthropologie catalog! Really I could wear either nearly all year long (save for summer). But that best is infinitely versatile. Wear it more layered during deep winter (yes, I live somewhere cold) and less so warm as it warms up. It could be the most well-loved piece in your wardrobe!
