Super light fabrics have made it possible for knits to take on their real desire: To encompass you. Coming down the runway are Giles Deacon super sized knits ready to fall into your lap.  Knits are big this fall, both literally and figuratively.  New yarns are twice the volume and half the weight so that knit jacket you had back in the seventies could literally be as big as your bed covering and as light as your shoes.  The big comfy look this fall by Deacon is rolling through the blogosphere like a big ball of yarn.  Surely the look evokes memories of your grandmother’s bed but that's the point.  The couture designers are taping into the emotional connections big cushy knits have to comfort and luxury.  When was the last time you wanted to reach out and touch something that looked too comfortable to be real, well now it can wear you.
