Very cute patterns!  I especially like rufflette and lux - they both look hard though.

Would it defeat the purpose if I made Rufflette without the ruffles???  Smiley

Otherwise, I agree with Josiecat. Rufflette and Lux are really nice looking.

i agree that rufflette and lux are great, and emily would be a good structure to elaborate a bit.  i could see my niece on the beach in Rose of Sharon (she is 8 mos. old) (and i am about to finish orangina -- the lace patterns look hauntingly similar!)

it is me (i hope it is!) or is rufflette "breaking" a bit?  look at the inside left elbow in the 1st pick and the top right back on the last pic. it is a beautiful sweater (and great shape) -- perfect as a coverup over a nice summer dress.  i fear one trip out and i would hook it on something and all would be over....

Lux and Emily are both very pretty. I'm currently a bit fed up with knitted summer items, but I'll try to keep these in mind for a distant future when I'm less traumatized Smiley

I have to say that there isn't really anything here that I would knit....

Rufflette is nice, but I would never wear it, so there would be no point in me knitting it (plus I can't really afford the yarn at the moment!)....  lux I liked too (in a different colour thouhg - I don't wear bright green!).. but the idea of laceweight cashmere (apart from breaking my budget!) fills me with horror...... I just know if I didn't shrink the thing while washing it, one of the kids would catch it while giving me a cuddle and rip it......and the teeny tiny needles....it would take an age to knit and I would get bored halfway through the first part!

and nothing else really does anything for me......

i love lux, but that's quite a bit beyond my skill level/budget/patience/etc! I'm really liking Emily too.

I just printed out the pattern for the Saturday Market Bag.  I have some Lion Brand Cotton that's just sitting around.  This just might be the thing to get me out of my knitting slump.

I also really like Gesundheit; I might knit it up in order to distract myself from the constant allergies and colds.

ETA:
I started the Saturday Market Bag just a little bit ago, and the lace pattern as written doesn't match the photo.  She has it so it's stockinette-based, but the photo clearly shows a garter-based lace.  Mine definitely looks different from the photo, since I don't have the garter stitch bars.  I'm not sure if I want to frog it or just keep it as is.

E again TA:
I tried it with K on every row, and that looked wrong too.  I'm just confused now.  I'm going back to the way the pattern is written and just keeping that.  It doesn't matter that much to me to have the lace pattern exactly right.

I think this is the first time in a while that I've been impressed by everything in Magknits.  I really like this issue!  And I'm being tormented - I have cashmere laceweight that I could use for Lux, but was planning to use for Eunny Jang's Print o' the Wave shawl.  What to do, what to do....
