A few patterns that i love from recent winter publications:
Interweave Knits Winter 2009, I am a little dissapointed with this issue, there’re only two patterns that I like:
Nora’s Sweater. Isn’t it trendy and oh so cozy? I love the plum color, the drape and the cable details

I have not bought any pattern from Twist Collective but a few that I like:
Kelmscott. This is so so elegant, perfect outfit for Christmas party. The color is perfect and the collar and button accentuate the sweater even more
Mystere. Perfect pullover for work and again the color is perfect.
Kirigami. Kate Gilbert does it again. I love her design, always eclectic yet very wearable.

On the sewing side, I am excited about the new Colette patterns but a bit worry that Sarai will never publish pattern for a petite girl like me. the new patterns seem to come straight out of Betty Draper’s wardrobe. Here are my favorites:
Sencha. I love this elegant blouse. Oh how i long for the 60s, when women took their times to dress up. Moreover, it’s rated for beginner
Oolong. Isn’t this very Betty Draper?
Ceylon, the last of my favorite but I am worry that it won’t look good on me, if you know what I mean.

And that concludes the patterns round-up
