Lion Brand Fashion

A little while ago I purchased a whoopin' 2 balls of "can't find this color anywhere" L.ion B.rand yarn and the cute Cable Luxe Tunic pattern.

When I received my small package, inside the box was the Fall/Winter 2007 Lion Design catalog. I flipped thru it while waiting in traffic and realized that L.ion B.rand is really trying to step up their "fashion" game. Nice!

Below are a few items that raised my "knitting antennas" ;o)

Fall/Winter 2007 Lion Design Catalog
Top: 1. Glowing Colors Afghan - out of Jiffy yarn!! I could not believe it...but it sheds like crazy! 2. Cable Vision - cute but probably won't knit it. 3. Cable Luxe Tunic - the one I had to just get and you probably have seen everywhere in the knit blog world. I must knit this eventually! It made my mouth drop, and reminds me of the tangled yoke, not to mention it could 'almost' be the cousin to Silver Belle.

Bottom: 4. Drop Stitch Pattern 5. Cabled Baby Set - out of Lion Organic Cotton 6. Satchel Grande

I have always have been concerned with L.ion B.rand's patterns. Every time I see or hear of a knitter/crocheter making something from them they consistently complain about the errors and logic behind the writing....doesn't exactly make me want to jump and knit up something from one of their patterns.

And how about this one!! :oD New Wave Throw - the look-a-like of Lizard Ridge!

Sure does remind me a lot of something I just did not too long ago! ;op Haha!

BTW - I am LUVIN curling up with mine. It may be lightweight, but it sure does heat my legs up quick!!

And look at this yummy yarn that LB has now

Lion Organic Cotton

Nice! Really likin' that bark color! And it would look great in that baby cable set - item #5.

Well that is all I got.

Enjoy the rest of your week! :o)

    I hope I get around to it because I definitely want make the cable tunic. It's a direct replica of the Pringle of Scotland tunic.

    I saw that catalog as well & was impressed with a lot of the items. I love that Cable Tunic.

    And that Organic Cotton is lovely - mine was so soft but shed a lot.

    So... How do I get one of these catalogs? I *NEED* cable vision and your Luxe looks great too!

    I've never seen Lion's Brand offer such trendy patterns. The Cable Lux Tunic reminds me of a pattern I seen in one of the Interweaves magazine and the Victoria's Secret sweater.

    Do they give the pattern or do you need to buy 'em?

    Like every one of you selections, though when I saw the LB words, I have to admit, I immediately thought "eeeeewwww!"
    (just looking at their "Homespun" makes me itch!

Who knows, Knitting Contrisstmas has me so busy right now along with life that, well---- I have no idea what I'll be knitting for FUN. Woo Hoo, I can't wait!!!! You can bet one dipdog thing, it shall be red!!!

    Not only the styling but the yarns too! The cable sweater sort of looks like the one in this winter's Interweave Knits. I still love your Lizzie! Thanks for the code ;)
