Keep the Thermostat Down
My autumn knitting queue is full of cardigans. They are fantastic for layering, especially during in-between seasons when weather can be unpredictable (and downright tempestuous here in New England). Cardigans also save money in unexpected ways. President Jimmy Carter famously wore a cardigan during a fireside chat, sending a sartorial message about conservation and practicality. According to the Farmer's Almanac, we're in for a colder than normal winter. With the upward trend of energy costs, President Carter's fashion advice is ringing in my ears.
I'm always torn between making cardigans in sensible neutrals or standout
brights. A black or grey cardigan becomes a wardrobe equivilant of a security
blanket, but a strong shade like magenta or chartruese will set off more
subdued outfits. Scrunch is a clever assymetrical ribbed cardigan knit
in Geode™ which comes in a variety of deep base shades with hints of color
throughout. Lichen is a study in texture and its uncluttered silouette puts
the focus on your favorite shade of Trilogy™. Either way, cardigans are fall's
