Review: Interweave Knits, winter 2012

Just received my Interweave Knits magazine in the mail yesterday, my goodness……I don’t know where to begin! First, I love the ads for all the new yarns, books and gadgets on the market like the Ottlite Craft Caddy Lamp or the Addi Quick Felting tool (Yes, I’m geeky like that) There’s a book excerpt on November Knits, this book offers 23 sweaters and accessories projects. The Burdock cardigan pattern from the book is in this winter edition. (I plan on knitting this one!)

The winter edition 2012 offers several color work projects like the Snowbird Capelet and Professor Jackson’s Scarf for you or the man in you life. Oh, and some of the most beautiful cables knits I’ve seen for a while. Love, love, love the cable hats! There is a pretty cable sweater that I would love to knit someday called Sylvia’s Pullover, page 80. So many wonderful projects to knit and so little time (somebody had to say it). If you knit even just one project from this winter edition, your sure to stay warm for the season.

Also…….There’s an interesting article, The Coincidental Knitter about Kristen TenDyke (knitting and crochet designer). She talks about how she eventually came into her own style.  The Artist Spotlight Comforting Connections: goes to Beth Egenhoefer for her wonderful work with textile sculptures, public art and video games. And there are always new knitting tips to learn. Over all a really great winter edition to your library.

Our neighbor gave us this cute little solar flower-pot as a thank you for loaning her our kitty carrier.  All three flowers moves as if to say, hey look at me, here I am!! Portia is trying to smell it here.

Stay warm and happy knitting : )
