Drops Voting Time Again

Even though I know that all the patterns will eventually be published, I always look forward to voting on the new Drops patterns. This year, a number of their designs feature a new, fur-like yarn that doesn’t do much for me (I’m still recovering from that whole era of eyelash yarns we had a while ago) and there are fewer of the interesting cabled designs that are usually my favorites—but there’s still plenty to like.

My choices?

First up, some cardigans.

This looks like just the thing to keep a body cozy during a windy walk on a beach.

I love the slightly military styling of this one.

Just look at the gorgeous way cables are used to highlight the back and create waist shaping.

This one has so many interesting things going on—I really think it would be a fun knit.

And then, several vests. (Melissa would like a knit vest, so I keep book-marking patterns, but what I really need to do is start knitting.)

This one is definitely not Melissa’s style, but I could imagine making it for Miss Sparkles.

Again, not Melissa’s style, but it sure looks like a quick, fun knit.

This is the one I can actually imagine Melissa wearing—some interesting detailing, but nothing fussy.

And then a handful of other patterns.

A lovely, crescent-shaped shawl with lace edging.

A hat that pretty much cracks me up.

And some cozy slippers that would make great winter-time gifts.

Those are my votes—what are yours?

    You totally nailed it about which vest Melissa would like! A no-frills kinda girl, my sis! So START KNITTING while she’s in Spain & have a birthday surprise for her when she returns home, eh?

    I also liked the Bob Hus – cats are so finicky about where they will or will not sleep.
