I recently re-subscribed to Interweave Knits and I got my first issue last week. I am so glad I am receiving this magazine again! Though I remember that I was never too impressed with their spring and summer editions, I actually love quite a few of the patterns in this magazine! Here are a few of my favorites.
I really love this cardigan. It’s got some beading, which is a little intimidating — probably not the best way to jump back into adult sweater making.
This is probably my favorite of all of them. I like it so much, in fact, that I went to Knit Picks Friday morning before school and ordered the yarn. I love that it is made from sock yarn so it’s a bit on the lighter side. I also really like the double-breasted style. I’m not a huge fan of how prominent the buttons are on this example, so I’ll probably choose buttons that don’t stand out quite so much. I will also make it longer. Cropped tops just don’t look great on my short-waisted self. I ordered Knit Picks Stroll Tonal in a lovely blue-violet shade.
Next week I am going to visit a Waldorf school in Portland and I’m really looking forward to the visit. I’m hoping this yarn arrives before I leave so I can work on it while I’m there. Even when I have a busy trip planned, I always somehow have more time for knitting when I’m away from home.
This weekend is full of housecleaning, lesson planning and errand running, though I’m sure I’ll find some time to squeeze in a little bit of knitting. I’ve been mostly working on a hat for my sister Mikela. Back in the summer she bought some yarn for me to make her a scarf. I made the scarf and had a skein of the yarn left so I’m using that for a matching hat. I’m using the Springtime in Philadelphia pattern by Kate Gagnon Osborn. It’s turning out cute and going quickly — I might even be able to finish it and take some photos before the weekend is out.
Well, back to the housework!
