Going Coco Puffs for Sweaters

Sweaters are taking on a whole knew look and I am definitely going coco puffs for them. Yeah, yeah I crochet and knit, but for the life of me I can't seem to get a sweater off my hooks quick enough. So I purchased a few sweaters from the Loft, luckily I had several $25.00 off coupons, which I used for every $50.00 I spent... (well let's say I had 8 coupons...lol).

I browsed a few sites and was drooling over some more of the latest knit fashions, come on and cooo with me over the latest eye catchers:



Cable Sweater Cape (Nordstrom)

Cable Dolman Sweater (Chadwicks)
Bell Sleeve Cardigan (Chadwicks)


Baby Doll Cardi (Graham & Spencer)

Puff Sleeve Cardigan (Nordstrom)

Colonel Crop Cardi (Graham & Spencer)



Fur Trim Sweater Coat (Garnet Hill)



Nordic Sweater (Chadwicks)

Ombre Cardigan (Loft)

Ribbed Sweater (Chadwicks)
Being a crocheter/knitter, how many sweaters do you tend to buy and how many do you get off your hook/needles for the season.

Those are great sweaters!! I hardly buy any at all. I have a ton that are "classic" so I haven't had a reason to buy many lol. Hey, email me, I have a question for ya...

I love the Nordstorm, Chadwick, & Graham sweaters!!!

I SO will continue to buy sweaters off the rack, but now I find myself more critical of the fiber content since I started really knitting! ;o)

Chadwick is stepping their game up. I always thought of them of as drab, but now I might have to buy those two sweaters.

OH wow so hard to pick I think I love the Ombre Cardigan. I don't buy sweaters I have lately been making cardigans and bolero lately but, I so love looking at wearables that catch my eyes it does gives you a since of wanting to do it something. :)

Gorgeous sweaters! I love sweaters and used to have tons. Now that I live in Vegas, I don't wear so many. bummer...

If it's a good deal, I'm buying it. A good deal is one that involves a sweater with great detailing and characteristic, made with a great fiber, for a great price. I never cared like that before making them myself.

oooooh soooo pretty! I may buy a sweater off the rack, but it's really gotta be something that I would not knit up. Which may explain why I don't have much clothes (I always think, I could make that, LOL)

Those are some gorgeous sweaters you showcased there.

As for me, I don't buy sweaters anymore...I'm determined to make all of mine from here on. Luckily, I live in Florida so if I only make 1 a year, I'll still be OK, LOL.
