Holy freaking cable, Batman!

What, me? Have an opinion?

Vogue Knitting has their fall preview up. Quick thoughts before I go write write write write write. (I'm actually starting to feel like I might someday be done with the paper! Whee!)

1. Gray's Anatomy. I love me some cables, and gray, actually, but I'm not so sure about these. Nos. 1, 3, and 4 might have some potential, if I could actually see the whole sweater. 5: Not big on the uneven sides thing. 6: Can't really tell what it is, but it's looking like it's cutting off her circulation.

And #2, of course, is the source of this post's title. qw21? Actually, the cabling the cables together thing looks like it might be fun. But please, PLEASE do not let me knit this or, God forbid, wear it. It could not possible look good on, I don't know, anyone, actually.

2. Modern English. #1: Cute! Love it! Wow, I'm shocked! #2 and 3: Okay, I guess. Not my style.

3. Hobo Chic. Enh. I actually feel like all three might have some vague potential, but I can't really see enough of them in the artistic photography/odd poses to tell.

4. Socks! We love socks! Nos. 1 and 3: Eeesh! Interesting, but I'm not sure. I tend to be skeptical of how designs like those will work on those of use who don't have calves like twigs. #5: Adorable, but same concern as above. #2: Maybe! It looks a lot like Potamotawhatever. I hear a rumor it's the same designer, but have not been able to confirm this. #4: Once you get past the colors, cute! I might want to try these in white, actually. They remind me of lace socks I used to have as a child. #6: Fun! Definitely want to try these.

Overall: Not as exciting as the Interweave preview, but then, I wouldn't expect it to be. Enough interesting stuff that I'll probably buy it.

And heck, a few random paper thoughts while we're at it:
1. I'm searching lots of databases and starting to find the same articles over and over. I think this is a good sign, right? That I've found everything important, at least?
2. I keep searching for "Mary AND Wollstonecraft." It just struck me that the only other important Wollstonecraft is also named Mary, so this is probably not helpful. Ah well.
3. I just came across a citation to an essay called "Needlecraft and Wollstonecraft." Exciting! Unfortunately, I don't think it's very relevant; it looks like it's about needlework and women's rights and education in 18th century Salem, MA, and they put Wollstonecraft in the title because it rhymed . Ah well.

Everthing important on the net at any rate.
