Today’s Knitting News

The continuing saga of…ponchos. Three catalogues, each radically different from each other:
• Alloy Back to School ’04 – high school and college girls,
• Anthropologie Fall 2004 – a very trendy boutique, and
• By Mail Bloomingdale’s – the confident woman department store.
Each has poncho (or two)! Alloy claims “It is fall’s top 5 things you just can’t live without.” Read Looks We Love at their website. Also notable on this list is a knit boucle’ shrug. Anthropologie has made a poncho/cape/capelet a prerequisite in each season’s offering. This season they call it a wrap. And Bloomies – that is just too mainstream! They go upscale with a lavender silk/mohair version.

On my Ingeborg knitting – the only knitting I am pursuing (except for a black Berocco suede mobile phone cover I whipped out for Mark over the weekend): I am on my third repeat. She is flying off the needles at the moment. Things will probably slow down when I start the sleeves. And the lace…well the lace is tedious.
