Down to the Knitty Gritty

The long and short of knits this fall, we find our crocheted consorts maxed out in sweaters and scarves, vamped up in body suits and reinterpreted in dresses. Despite dying to be taken off the runway and straight to the ski slope, these pieces are better worn for day lounging inside the lodge, attempting to make eye contact with foreign ski instructors and pretending to read Gravity's Rainbow. Who'd ever thought cable knit could be so sexy?

No need for lovers when you have knits like these to keep you warm. (I'll probably retract that statement when I'm alone, ruining some fabulous piece with tearful sobbing in a few months.) Now if only the sun would go away sooner...
