Interweave Knits has recently released their Holiday 2016 issue and oh-my-goodness! The pieces are enchantingly beautiful, especially Windsor Vest by Jessie McKitrick. Classic Fair Isle meets childlike charm for a garment that is captivating. It is definitely not a quick knit, but it is very much a must-try.
Jessie used our Tough Love Sock in Mist, Ginger, Cherry, Birch, and Auburn in such a way that we are hard-pressed to change it! What colours would you try?
