What does everyone think of Vogue Knitting's Fall preview? Any pieces you love? Any pieces you really don't like?

Clue #3 is done! I'm not too excited with clue #4, but I don't feel like modding it.

If you'd like to read through all of the mods and complaints surrounding clue #4, you can browse this Ravelry thread:

What would you cast on today if you had 650 yards of worsted weight superwash merino?

+Caitlin Fetterly  The Hemlock Ring is beautiful. The yarn in question is some dark mossy green I dyed the other day and decided to keep for myself.

Noro Silk Garden Sock in colorway S272 (what a lovey colorway name) and Handsome Fibers Pip in Madame X.

The first shipment of ChiaoGoo interchangeables is due to arrive on the 8th. I'm so thankful that UPS does not take Columbus Day off.

Here's my project for the ChiaoGoo KAL so far. It's a Hemlock Ring Blanket in Handsome Fibers Anne Elliot. Colorway is Lodge Grass.

Thanks everyone! I think it will end up being a gift for my grandmother's 80th birthday.

It definitely doesn't look like Spectra anymore. There's about 30 ends to weave in though. Ugh.
