My fall 2008 IK finally arrived. L mentioned at dinner on Friday that she had gotten hers the day before. I haven’t finished reading it (despite being on vacation at home) but I have made a good start!
So, what do you like in the issue? I want to look at the book Inspired to Knit, as well as Poems of color and Everday knitting. (I have wanted to look at Selbuvotter for some time now.). I thought Yarnmarket impressionistic palette was interesting, seeing how different designers interpret the same painting in yarn.
I like the Dumpling bags, the Fresco Fair Isle mitts, and the Winter twilight mitts, but I’m not sure I’d make either. The Knotty or Knice socks are OK, but I have quite list of socks to make but 20 or 30 pairs from now, maybe I’d be interested… I like the Estes vest and might even make it if I decide it is something I need. There are aspects of the Backstage tweed jacket that I like, but I really dislike the way it closes in front. That’s about it. Not much really grabbed me this time.
