Vogue Knitting Fall 2012 30th Anniversary Issue

I know I have said this before, but I am always excited when the new issue of VK is about to hit the news stands.  The sneak peek is up on the Vogue Knitting Website. This is the 30th anniversary issue and it looks fabulous!

My sweater, the "Striped Turtleneck" is part of the Wanderlust Collection.  The sweater is a short sleeve standard fitting turtleneck with a mesh top, eyelet band, and center cable.  The yarn is the lovely and soft Brae Tweed by Knit one, Crochet Too. The yarn is smooth and has a nice drape, but still shows stitch definition and cables nicely. I love the heathered colors they chose. The weight is such that you could wear the sweater by itself in the autumn, and layer it for the winter. It is a relatively quick knit that could be finished just in time for the cooler days ahead.
What is on your needles now? Are you knitting with an eye towards the fall, or you enjoying crisp cotton and silk as the temperatures are still so high? Please share; I love your stories!
