Gatsby Girl Pullover, in fall '06 Interweave Knits, modelled here by the lovely Carrieoke, who also helped me knit the sample sweater, because she's awesome like that.

The Gatsby Girl is easily the best thing in IK this fall, upon first glance-- plus I love the name. I'm definitely going to try to knit it!

Holy crap, I want to make one!!!!

Okay, now I need to go and buy my first issue of IK ever. Yep, I'm a knitter who doesn't own any IK issues...

That is fabulous! Interweave! Sweater! Name! So many exclamation points!!!

Posted by: Sarah at July 10, 2006 02:43 AM

well done you! I did a double take when I was looking at the preview online, I read the designers names quickly in case there is anyone I know and I read 'Jodi Green' scrolled down and then went 'f'ing hell, JODI!!!!!' with a big grin as I scrolled back up to have a better look!

Very impressive! Congrats.

Posted by: Christabel at July 10, 2006 07:02 AM

Very pretty! And I love that it's in the Rowan Cashsoft DK because I can sub the cotton for the Texas Swelter.

That's one of the nicest sweaters in the edition. It's on my list.

Wow, you've just made my day in about eight different ways - not only do I love your sweater, there are several other projects I'm looking forward to - thanks, and congrats.

I fell in love with this sweater when I first saw the online preview for IK. I can't wait for the mag to come out so I can start knitting. Congrats!

I can't breathe!!!!!! I've dined with a famous Interweave designer.

It's too much, I tell you, too much.

So awesome- I saw the preview and scooted my ass on over. Love it. Can't wait to see the mag in person so that I can pore over it.

Oh wow! Many many congrats... and in Cashsoft DK too (I've been using single skeins for the Odessa hats, and it's just yummy). I'll definitely be buying this issue.
