The stories are Sheer Magic, Optical Illusion, Dynamic Duo, Parlor Pastels, Cotton Soft and Louisa Harding's Collarful Additions.
There are a few that attract my attention right away. The contrast and all around mojo of the Optical Illusion collection are the most appealing, even though I might not wear them all.
This is something I'd knit in a heartbeat, provided I added some short sleeve treatment. I'm not big on sleeveless, for me.
From simple asymmetrical object d'yarn previously, to this delicious texture, I love love love this tunic/dress. I went bobble knitting crazy each of the last 2 summers, so it's no surprise that my brain must equate bobbly texture with warm weather. I don't know why.
There are a whole bunch of "collars" that remind me a little of jabots. Of the ones in the preview, I think I like the ones that are on top of garments, but the ones that are on the model's skin with a larger open neckline don't appeal as much. They are something between an "accessory" like a scarf and "jewelry." I don't know how to think of them. But I could see the right variation of the closer collars to dress up a dress down look: a punch of fancy and color on top of a tee to match a bag or shoes, or just to whimsy-up a plain monochromatic outfit.
The preview is interesting. Thanks, VK. You're always on top of things
