Here is a list you should check out.
First up is Ysolda Teague's The Rhinebeck Sweater book and e-book. If you go to her website you can look at all the patterns and preorder. Pumpkin Ale is one of the patterns I am excited about. This book contains patterns by many of the top knitting designers like Thea Colman, Gundrun Johnston, and Cecily Glowik MacDonald just to name a few. The book and e-book will come out November 6th.
Another pattern that I quite like is called I Heart Cardigans by Tanis Lavallee (of Tanis Fiber Arts). This lovely worsted pattern has cables and looks like the perfect fall sweater. Love it!
I am a big fan of Amy Herzog (who by the way has a cardigan pattern in The Rhinebeck Sweater book) and she has come out with a pattern called Dalriada in sport weight yarn. It looks like a very flattering style of cardigan that will suit many different body shapes.
Gabbro by Carol Feller is another sweater pattern that looks lovely to me. It is a fingering weight sweater with some pretty lace work.
And then there is CustomFit which is a new venture by Amy Herzog. Basically you pick your yarn, knit a swatch, take your measurements and through Amy's program a sweater/cardigan will be designed for you to your exact measurements. I am on waiting list to do that as they are unrolling the program slowly. You can see what some test knitters have made using Amy's program here.
I find the knitting industry so exciting right now. There is so many ideas, designs, yarn choices...the possibilities are endless. It really would be a great industry to work in and I envy those that do.
