{Hooded Jacket by Josh Bennett}

Here is a little peak of the goodies you’ll find in the new Early Fall 2010 issue of Vogue Knitting!  Remember yesterday when I showed you the Amy Butler yarn?  Well this chic hooded Jacket is knit in the Aran weight, and is just gorgeous.

The gingham, paired with the wide-rib detailing is charming, without any trace of sweetness.  If you’ve never seen any of Josh Bennett’s knits, I definitely suggest hightailing it to his Ravelry designer page, or his website.  He is super, super talented and such an inspiration.  He takes classic knitwear elements and elevates them so that they are fresh and modern.

{Lace Cardigan by Jennie Atkinson}

I adore the romantic style of this lace cardigan.  Personally, I would knit this to throw over my silk chemises at night, or in the morning while reading magazines and drinking coffee.  It is perfect for lounging in bed, don’t you think?

Of course, this beautiful lace-work is too pretty to only wear around the house.  It would be also be perfect for a Sunday afternoon lunch date with my husband.

{Lace Stole by Erica Schlueter}

This pale aubergine-colored lace stole also caught my eye for its simplistic versatility.

While it could easily be worn as a wrap with a cocktail dress in the evening, it looks like it would be equally at home worn as a scarf with jeans, a long-sleeved t-shirt and a pair of leather boots on a Friday afternoon.

{Cables & Lace Vest by Cheryl Murray}

This Cables & Lace Vest makes me want to move to the English countryside, live on a grand manor, ride horses and grow organic vegetables.  But since that’s not quite possible, perhaps this would work for fall apple picking and hayrides here in the good old US of A.

The styling in these vest photos is spectacular – the belt, the hat, the ruffles and plaid.  Yes please to all of it.

{Long Necklace by Shadowplay}

Speaking of styling, this issue also includes two pieces of hand-knit jewelry – my favorite being this J-Crew-esque necklace by Shadowplay.  According to its Ravelry page, it’s knit with Be Sweet’s Magic Ball yarn, with 500 Crystallized Swarovski elements delicately woven in.  Stunning.

This is just a small taste of what you’ll find tucked into this issue.  If you want to check out the rest of the patterns, visit the its Ravelry page, or head straight over to the Vogue Knitting website ~J
