For planning purposes, were the cardigans to appear this spring or fall?

Much obliged for the info.
Even though it's not the rollneck you linked to above, any chance of seeing this nice thick one again?
I err on the side of "probably not", to be honest.
The heavy rollneck was never very popular at the time (but we have since it sold out had quite a few enquiries). I did like it very much, and it was a joy to wear, but I think that, when next we make a rollneck, it will be lighter in weight. Heavier than the most recent version, though. Probably 7-8 ply.
No fixed plans, admittedly — our next engagement with winter knitwear development won't be for almost a year — but that's how I think it will pan out.
I know one of them -- this one:
It's a melange of two blues. One of the most rich and vibrant we've done.
There will be at least one other — probably something biscuit-y or gray-y.
I have spent a few days overseas, so please excuse the tumbleweed here of late.
Just before I hopped abroad, we took some photographs of the new SB3 jacket in the two-ply worsted birdseye suiting (along with some upcoming matching trousers).
This is a cloth we hope to use more often in future — in other colours, patterns, weights. It is a replica of suiting from the same mill, in the early part of the 1900s, and I am very fond of it.
Despite being worsted, and ergo wool, it is very light, always cool to the touch, and very breathable (hold it up to the light and it has a gauze-like construction). But, on the other hand, it doesn't crease a jot: you can scrunch it up and it springs back to shape. Good all year round, and very good for travelling.
Makes the jacket miles different in appearance to most other versions, too — especially the recent corduroy one.
A couple of gents have visited the workshop today enquiring about the heavy hand-woven linen (from the Outer Hebrides) about which I've bleated a few times on here over the past few months.
Well, in answer to them, and to anyone else wondering -- they are ready. (And I'm wearing one myself, right now, as it happens.)
We took a few photographs of them last weekend, and they will be over at http://sehkelly.com/overshirt well before this time next week.
