Tiny bit cornfused.

There's really nothing new in the world of knitting. I keep telling myself that, and events keep reminding me that. What came first, the chicken or the egg? The morning or the night? The Torino or the Cobblestone?

The latest IWK has a men's pullover called Cobblestone. I raved about it all last month, because I thought the shoulder emphasis and the "slimming" side panels were really good ideas for a modern and flattering sweater.

I received Tahki Stacy-Charles' newsletter today and saw a free pattern for "Torino Bulky Circular Pullover". That is also a clever, modern pullover, isn't it? There's no way to tell if the designer is the same, or which came first.
Disconcerting, isn't it?
