Interweave Knits, Fall 2008

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.

  1. Mine came yesterday, and there wasn’t anything that made me say “OOOH! Cast on now!” But that’s probably a good thing, considering how long my Ravelry queue is! 😉

  2. I got my issue right before we went camping (I think I got mine Last), so I haven’t gotten through the whole issue. So far, I have to agree with the general comments. Nothing so far has grabbed me, even the articles. But I didn’t go through the whole thing.
