Oh boy oh boy oh boy oh boy

Not that I would be caught dead wearing a poncho, but look what's coming out in September!

    That is definately intriguing! Have you seen a release date anywhere? - Lisa

    The book has not yet been sent to the printer, but should be out sometime in the fall.

    I've had a sneak peek at the projects, and like Scarf Style you can expect the unexpected. Very few patterns could be considered ponchos, which is why the book's title is Wrap Style.

    Projects will include shrugs (i.e. things with connected sleeves), capelets, shawls, and glamor-style wraps with unusual shaping. There will be interesting cables, colorwork, and lace, with a smattering of less-challenging projects for beginning knitters -- pretty much the mix of techniques and skill levels seen in Scarf Style.

    What I can't wait to see is if any of the designs will become a cult hit like Ruffles!

    I know one of the projects is a wrap made from Touch Me yarn by Annie Modesitt. She posted about it on her blog a few months back and it looked very nice.

    Why can't they make "sock style" or something way better than PONCHOS?

    I, for one, can't wait to see how many sets of sleeves they have. I hope some of them are modeled by our favorite Scarf-Style-Male-Model-with-the-Soul-Patch TM.
