The last weeks of summer are fast approaching and soon the air will become crisp and the leaves will change colors. I’ve lived in Portland on and off since 2002. It wasn’t until 2014 that I really started to conform and begin enjoying cooler temperatures. I will forever be a beach baby that wants to live where it never gets below 70 degrees, but I can now appreciate cozy sweater weather. I can thank knitting and my killer boot collection for my new found appreciation of fall and winter weather.
One of my favorite things about fall, since becoming a knitter, is when new collections come out. I eagerly await the days when my favorite lines and designers start dropping new patterns. I’ve had my eyes on Woolfolk and all their collection teaser photos they’ve been sharing the past couple of months. Finally, this week the Woolfolk FW16 Collection was released, and I’m politely calling dibs on all their yarn we carry so I can knit every pattern.
Here are a few of my favorites from the collection:
DRYS: When I saw the teaser photo of this wrap I knew it was going to be a favorite. I’m enamored with this chic wrap and I can’t wait to drape it around my neck and over my shoulder. I love the placement of all the eyelet type holes that are so precisely spread around. This is one dreamy wrap that I can’t wait to wear.
LOS: This sweater was quick to catch my eyes. I know what Woolfolk FÅR yarn feels like, so I know that LOS is one cozy sweater. Everything about this sweater says cozy, from the slightly oversized look to the ribbed cuffs you will want to wrap your hands in. I’ve tried zooming in to see the pattern on the sweater since it looks so inviting, but I can’t seem to figure it out. Besides the cozy factor that LOS is bringing, it’s also one classy-looking turtleneck.
ARKADE: There are two choices for ARKADE, a cowl, and a scarf. I love the cowl, but I’m going to talk about the mega mega mega scarf. I love the look of large scarves that I can wrap around multiple times for a super bulky look. Unfortunately, the patterns are never intriguing enough for me to commit to knitting a six-foot scarf. ARKADE is going to make me a scarf knitter. The pattern is unique, intriguing, and something I’ve never seen before, which makes me want to drop everything and start knitting ARKADE.
After sharing my favorites I realized something – all of them are knit in color no. 1. I think I might have a favorite color for the seasons to come.
