This shawl caught my eye immediately. It’s one of those designs I love because it’s fairly simple, yet striking. I like the way the shawl plays with yarn weights to create the striping effect, it works very well.

I love this hat. The contrasting stripes are dramatic, and the chevron pattern makes otherwise simple stripes interesting. It looks like a cute accessory to brighten any winter day.

I am in awe of this coat. The cabling is so gorgeous, and it looks like something that would be so comfy to snuggle into in front of the fire with a good book.

Of course I couldn’t let Thanksgiving week here in the U.S. go by without a turkey pattern! This little guy is adorable, and I love his granny square tail feathers. He’d make the perfect Thanksgiving table centerpiece.

I cannot get over how adorable these little lovies are. I may still only be in the planning stages for my wedding, but I will definitely be making a few of these for my own kids when I have them in a few years. My fiance’s nephews have similar lovies and they love them, so that combined the handknit (and extreme cuteness) factor of this pattern makes it an instant queue for me.

I love the way the lace patterns in this shawl work together. The diamonds bend with the semicircle shape of the shawl so nicely, and wherever the shaping is it blends in well enough that I can’t actually see it. I also love that the shape of this shawl wraps around, so it would have no trouble staying on my shoulders.

As soon as I saw this pattern, I had to queue it. I’m currently in cool-things-for-the-house mode, having recently completed setting up wedding registries with my fiance. These pillow covers will be perfect for our future house, and I can make our pillows the exact colors we want!

This shawl caught my eye after I saw a finished project of it on the Ravelry forum radar. I love the use of stripes to keep the solid interior section interesting, and the transition to a lacy border for a bit of flair at the end.

I have a thing for stripes this week, apparently. This sweater jumped out at me from the pattern search this weekend. I love that the stripes begin around the bust and end before the waist. There’s enough striping to make the sweater interesting, but they don’t overwhelm the design. I have a feeling this cardigan will find its way into my wardrobe soon.
