In case you haven’t heard, Drops has posted their upcoming fall/winter designs so you can vote for your favorites. They’ve got some lovely pieces and a very wide variety. I was particularly taken with some of the cabling. You can vote for up to ten of the 177 (!) designs, so it takes a fair bit of clicking and thinking and list-making and list-shorteningâ€”just what a gal needs after four days of writing placement tests.
My faves? Here they be. (I’m just including the thumbnails; you can see bigger versions of the pics at their web site.)
I love the texture on this one, though if I were to knit it I’d shorten the body a bit so the waist didn’t ride as low as it does in the photo.
The length and fullness of this would require a good bit of knitting, but it would be a beautiful piece to wear to work. I’m particularly fond of the stand-up collar.
V-neck, cables, moss stitchâ€”’nuff said.
Ok, ok, so this looks like half a dozen other patterns in my queueâ€”that’s why I chose it.
Check out the cables on this beauty. And a hoodâ€”bonus!
More cables! Another hood!
I could figure this pattern out on my own, but it would be easier to follow theirs, and sometimes one needs easy. Doesn’t it look cozy?
I find this capelet variation irresistible.
This beret has a particularly nice shape, and I find the mix of blues with black-and-white positively uplifting.
Isn’t the shaping on this one great? I want to knit it up, just so I can check it out for myself.
So those are my choices. I’ll be waiting for them to appear on-line one-by-one over the next few months.
Which will you vote for?
