This + That is a regular feature collecting making - related bits and pieces from around the web for your browsing pleasure. 

I have a new installment of This + That for you today!  I've become slightly obssessed with Erica Smith's design style (minimal, intentional, and forever classic), and she just released a new pattern, Apogee.  It's pretty much the most beautiful basic pullover I've yet laid eyes on.  This got me thinking about some other pullover patterns that I really love, and it became this  basic vs. cabled pullovers game.  So here they are - what do you prefer?  Cables? or simple stockinette?  Or, as in my perfect world, one of each?

Which would you knit? (or knit first, anyway?)
