Fashion Knitting

 I don't know about you but I'm seeing knitting everywhere. This months fall magazines, window displays, and in department stores. This wave is nothing new but is fun when it seems to be taking the spot light and we just so happen to be able to make it ourselves.

 Here are a couple big name inspired knitting patterns. There are quite a few on Ravelry and then of course you have all of the Vogue patterns to think about but for now feast your eyes on these little babies:

Designer: Julianne Smith

Pattern: Upscale Baby
Designer: Kathleen Sperling

Crochet items are in too. This summer was chalked full of crochet. Crochet skirts, shorts, bathing suit cover ups. Now that it's about to be fall, it may be time to switch it up and this purse is a great example of a fashion forward, fall piece. It's inspired by a Nordstrom bag and is a free Raverly Download.

I hope you're getting excited about your hobby's attention and look forward to the amazing pieces you get to create yourself.
