The friendly folks at Nordstrom's and Neiman Marcus sent me an email about the latest fall trend - Serapes. 

The one on the left from Brunello-Cucinelli is $3995. The St. John's version on the right is a steal at $1095.  Both are available for convenient pre-order here and here.  

What's interesting is that both of these fabulous garments bear a striking resemblance to Caledonia, from Berroco's Cotolana collection. 

Nice, wouldn't you say.  I always say that we knit not to save money, but because we love to.  In this case, you can do both.  There's a lot of knitting in Caledonia, sure, but it's an easy meditative stitch pattern you can work while you're watching tv - especially nice to have something calming to knit when there's a tense moment in the game (or the debate).
