    1. To knit with a reverse stitch. 2. Thread made of twisted gold or silver wire. 3. To flow with a curling or rippling motion as a shallow stream does over stones.

I'd never have the patience for all the cabling but I adore that red coat!! <3

I love that assessment: look what I can knit but probably shouldn't have -- I absolutely recognize this and can apply it to one or two sweaters that look great on the shelf but not so much on me.

I love your choices, and agree with the coat analysis. Not enough structure is, I think, the salient point. They always end up looking very bathrobe-like on me at least. I'd missed this, so am very glad you posted, besides enjoying your thoughts on the different patterns.
