Knitting Mags and Books

After scoping out some pictures online, I headed over to Rosie's Yarn Cellar to pick up the Spring and Fall issues of Interweave Knits. I have recently added many sweaters to my ravelry queue and the latest are Spring's Cable Down Raglan, and Fall's Counterpane Pullover and Snowflake Socks, an inviting two-color fair isle pattern that is simply beautiful.

I also grabbed a copy of The Yarn Harlot's At Knit's End. A funny book of sayings, advice and humor surrounding the knitting culture. Awesome!

I was somewhat disappointed in Vogue Knitting's Fall 2007 25th Anniversary Issue patterns, so I chose not to buy it, but after a friend received 2 copies, I found myself with a copy of the magazine, and although I am still not enthralled with the patterns, it is worth picking up for the articles which include two set of interviews with the "Old-Guard" and "New-Guard" of knitting. I really liked the different perspectives from some very big names in the knitting world.

I also snagged a copy of Summer 2007's Interweave and Want to make the Wheat Ear Cable Yoke and Oriel Lace Blouse.

So much to knit! So little time....especially since I started school again this week.

Oh, I miss Rosie's! Actually, it's probably a good thing I don't live two blocks away anymore. I'd spend all my money on yarn and have nothing left to spend on food!
