The WINTER INTERWEAVE KNITS PREVIEW is up. Overall, I’m looking forward to it. There are a few sweaters and a scarf that look like fun. My breakdown…

The HIGH:

Bi-color cables. Of course, it’s by Annie Modesitt, so you can’t go wrong. But is anyone else just LOVING how this looks? I want to see more! Damn the small preview pics! Damn them!

and

The LOW:

Mowat Mukluks.

Mukluks.

Ok, I get that Kate Hudson and Pam Anderson love their Ugg boots. And oh…look, knitted BOOTies are so cute. But Mukluks? And in a hot pink no less. Talk about “Ugh”. To be fair, I think the furry wrap around section is what really puts it over the “fugly” edge. But really, I could never see these things again and be happy. Thank goodness for small preview pics! Thank goodness!

    Mukluks? Seriously? Is this a joke?

    Oh Suzanne, the “braveheart” that you are to want to even knit bi-colored cables. I’ll stand behind to watch. 🙂

    Yep…Ugh on the Ugg boots. Novelty yarn was fun at first…now they have totally run out of great ideas with it all and should stick to trim for babies and bags. Just imho.

    I would love to catch up with you at the Winter Retreat…keep me posted as the registration should reopen soon.
