the best of berroco's new fall line

I'm an unabashed Berroco fangirl so I'm not even going to bother explaining why I'm doing this. The Fall/Winter 2011 doesn't have one book in particular that I'm flailing over, but there are a few patterns that I will for sure be lusting over when the booklets arrive this summer:

Clinton is a stranded colorwork cowl where you only use two colors at a time. Sounds perfect to me. The color combinations are gorgeous and I am SO making this as soon as the booklet comes into the shop.

Fieldstone. A seamless, top down pullover with a fair isle yoke, a bit of garter trim, and and some fair isle sleeve details. EZ would be so proud of this.

Panna, an open-front, boyfriend length cardigan with ribbed trim and garter stitch edging. Simple and beautiful.

Ah finally, some patterns for Flicker! These Ekberg mittens are adorable and I love the cuff details.

And from Norah Gaughan's new book:

Nyx, a luscious, cabled cowl with a hint of glitter from the tinsel in Blackstone Tweed Metallic. (Aside: is shiny coming back?)

Overall, not a bad season for Berroco patterns. I'm pretty disappointed in the lack of crochet patterns, though. And I fear what direction they might go without Cirilia Rose...
