Fantasy Queue: Twist Collective Fall 2011

At a recent knitting get-together, we were all ooh-ing and ahh-ing over the latest Twist Collective. It all started because C was swatching for a sweater from this issue. We were all curious — luckily S had her new i-pad along, which turns out to be just the thing for browsing an online magazine and sharing with friends.  I don’t know how this great online magazine escaped my full attention in the past, but now I’m properly riveted. Here’s my fantasy queue, if money and time were not limiting factors:

#1 — Boundless ($7)

I like this whimsical cape, even though some at knit night pronounced it “impractical” or “cute, but only on a child.”  I have enough friends who dabble in the SCA or Assassin’s Guild or what-not that it is not too strange to wear a hooded cape…. besides, if I made it in Cranberry Gloss HW, how could I go astray?

#2 — Evendim ($7)

I love the asymmetrical collar and bold lace/cable design.  The stockinette body might just do me in … but then again, I’m getting better at plowing through just that sort of thing (ask me how my Ruched Yoke Tee is coming along…).  I would probably go with some lovely new Wool of the Andes Tweed, maybe in Flagstone Heather?  (Have I mentioned yet that I am in LOVE with the WotA Tweed colorways?)

#3 — Hosta ($6)

This one really catches the eye, right?  Right away I’m thinking … that is some cool double knitting or something, I must try it!  I’d likely stick with the recommended yarn, using this as an excuse to try Madeline Tosh Merino DK,
