Interweave Knits Summer 2011 picks

My knit dress isn't finished yet. We've had a couple of nights of difficult bedtimes. Anyway, as a diversion, here are my favorites from the Summer Interweave Knits I just received yesterday:

This isn't my favorite issue ever, but there are some intriguing designs, even if I wouldn't want to make them up exactly as designed. Clicking on any photo will take you to its page.

This first one just looks really cool. I like the pleat at the bottom and the stitch pattern around the bust.

I'm not usually crazy about knit skirts or variegated yarns, but the combo here is inspired. I may just put this in the queue.

Finally, I think this is my favorite. I love a cute hat, and this airy pattern looks perfect for Florida.

Of course, I still have a half-finished, short-sleeved, red cabled turtleneck in need of some attention, so I won't be starting anything new yet (all family members will be glad to hear).

The skirt is really pretty! I've never knit a skirt before. I wonder how they feel when you wear them. Heavy?
