Fall preview

As the summer season comes to a close, fall trends are emerging all around us with chunky knits everywhere in sight.  It seems that in every store I look at this season I see an over-sized scarf, sweater dress, or hat, covered in bold and eye-catching patterns.

The latest issue of Vogue Knitting features Project Runway winner Irina Shabayeva's newest collection of hand-knit garments.  Her pieces encompass every trend of this season with her use of intricate patterns and textures and cool, wintry colors.  Shabayeva's pieces are so thick and over-sized that you'll always stay warm this winter- while staying in style!
