Yeah, my 2 favorite things...well the sewing doesn't happen as much, you know due to the knitting taking over ;) Oh, can't forget the cookies either!
Now instead of a hard copy knitting magazine (that piles up in your house, or you misplace it...shhh...I know you all have done that!) you can view it online (save a few trees!!) read some really good articles and interviews and buy the entire collection of patterns for the current issue at a really low price. A year's subscription of all 4 issues/patterns isn't too bad either! It takes up much less space on a computer than collecting dust on your shelf. (but don't forget to save it from your computer too, however you do your backups). How easy is that! Oh and if you want some of their back print issues, check it out here!
Here are some highlights from their Spring 2010 Collection. What is really neat for me, I recognize the name of some of the designers, one of who has knit socks for me! :) This edition also has some good spinning advice, which I plan on keeping close by so I can tell my fiber/roving just what to do! ;)
Bezzie knit this and she contributes her spin on cookies in each issue.
Isn't this baby too adorable! What a cute dress!
Look a shawl, oh, I mean a stole ;) Yeah, I've been collecting these type of patterns lately.
But guess what! I'm going to have a contest. Jaala has donated 2 Pattern Collection Subscriptions for the year (that's all 4 issues!), and a few of the Spring Pattern Collections.
I'll make it easy for you! Just post a comment here before Tuesday, April 20th at 9pm. (why the 20th...well my son is 20, and he'll be home 10 days from that date....sentimental I know ;) Let me know what article/pattern you like from this current issue. The good old random number generator will let me know the winners! Check back here or include your email address in your comment in case you win. I'll forward those to Jaala, and she'll get you all set with your subscriptions.
I haven't decided what I want to knit from here yet, gosh I wished I knew someone with a wee girl! I want to knit that little dress!
