Spring Fever

The weather has taken a turn for the gorgeous and I've been thinking too much.  In response to this bout of Spring Fever, I feel the need to knit something lacy, something frilly, something feminine.  Lacy, frilly, and feminine for a sporty gal like myself equates to the Josephine Top designed by Deborah Newton for the Summer 2007 issue of Interweave Knits.  Don't worry, scholarly reader, I'm still thinking.

Spring Fever has hit nona hard!

Re your last post: Ingenious! Maybe now I can graft in the presence of other humans who are talking without getting lost.

The Josephine top looks lovely from the back. What is the front like? Is that a V-neck?

Ooo, spring fever hit me too, and I cast on for Josephine as well! I love how versatile it is, than it can be dressed up or down. The color of yours is beautiful!

I'm knitting Josephine too! I am knitting it in Marissa (70% pima cotton, 30% silk) and LOVING it. Super easy pattern to memorize. :)

Yep, "Josephine" really caught my eye in that issue, as did the little smocked cardigan (okay, it needs to be longer), the origami cardi, the chica gloves, the man's pullover with the checkerboard in front, and the oriel lace blouse. . .

I fell in love with that sweater when I saw it in the magazine! I can't wait to see yours!

Yes I've been admiring this pattern too. That bonus view that you linked to may have cinched it for me - the detail is just lovely.

 My idea is, why waste your blog article writing skills, you can create books? Think about it. You look at what you do very well. Word!
