Audio Slideshow - Booklet #289
This week we are pleased to introduce a new fall yarn, Lustra��� and Booklet #289 Lustra™. Named for its Lustragleaming shine, this single ply blend of wool and Tencel® takes color beautifully and is available in 16 jewel inspired tones. Tencel®, made from wood pulp, adds softness and drape to the mixture. This yarn boasts a luxury look (and generous 197 yard put-up) without a hefty price tag.

Booklet #289 Lustra™ is a collection of retro ladylike classics imbued with cheeky detail. Cardigans like Lexical and Lexeme beg to be embellished with your best vintage buttons. If you prefer more FPOmodern shapes with quirky detailing, look no further than Logos, dramatic cowl turtleneck, or Locus, a vibrantly color-blocked t-shirt dress.

As usual, we’ve put together a collection of exclusive close-ups and alternate views in our audio slideshow. Norah and I discuss our favorite details and share stories from behind the scenes.

Free PatternsScarves are amazing accessories that can inject color and detail in otherwise ho-hum ensembles. Summer scarves should be slinky and slender and this week’s free scarf pattern satisfies both criteria. Knit in Seduce®, Legume borrows a short-row pod stitch pattern from Logos.
