The background: My mom gets this catalog every few months from a clothing company called Chadwicks. She hasn't ordered anything from there in years, because it's too expensive for what you actually get (it's all very thin and kind of cheap looking when you actually see it in person). But we still keep the catalogs, mostly because, now that I knit, I can not only drool over the gorgeous sweaters but dream of one day making them!  Cheesy

Here are some from the latest issue we just got today and I thought some you might like to see them:

Chunky Pointelle Sweater
Cabled Turtleneck
Textured Hoodie Cardigan
Shawl-Collar Sweater
Cabled Twinset
Cabled Twinset (a different one, but same name)

Here are some others that weren't featured in the catalog, but that I think are beautiful, too:
Cable Dolman V-Neck Cardigan
Cardigan with Velvet Tie
Openwork Cardigan with Shawl-Collar
Empire Vest (This would look really nice IMO withOUT the turtle neck)
Shawl-Collar Sweater

Anyway, I hope I've given you some inspiration (or at least something to drool over for the day Wink)!

Just found a couple more:
Fair Isle Cardigan
Laura Clement Cabled Cardigan

I like to do personal swaps now and again.

I knit, crochet, and make stitch markers.

Just pm me if you wanna swap. Smiley

I really like the design of the cabled turtleneck, and the empire vest (without the turtleneck  Cheesy)

Thanks for posting the links.  There are a few I'd be very happy to make.  I agree with you about the Empire Vest.   Cheesy

Please feel free to check out my Dating and Tiffany Ring blogs.  A few more are listed on my profile page.  Smiley

I want to have fun. I want to shine like the sun. I want to be the one that you want to see. I want to knit you a sweater. I want to write you a love letter. I want to make you feel better. I want to make you feel free. --Joni Mitchell

I've been looking for a shawl-collar sweater. The pictures you posted are going to come in handy!
