    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 quite like the top one, but I'm not sure that sleeve length would be the best for me - I think elbow length might be more flattering ... I like the others, and I'm tempted to buy the mags, even though Northern Hemisphere seasons are the opposite of ours.

The red is my fave - the one at the bottom doesn't do it for me, though the yarn looks lovely. How long have you been knitting, M? What a tremendous skill - you do it all: gardening, knitting, sewing, cooking! Wow. How accomplished.
