I am kinda dissappointed  Embarrassed

Was there any warning that this issue was going to be a socks/wintery hat type issue?

I dont want to think of making 90% of what they had up until october when I start making my wintery thing.

I mean, its all cute and lovely and what not, but it wasnt what I was expecting.

when it's free as it is, and full of all kinds of knitterly goodness, i'm pretty sure no warning is required (or how exactly one would have helped).  you get what you get. =]

i had two comments when i noticed it was finally up:

I kind of like that they went with the socks-hats-n'things for this issue. Just dumping the summer sweater conundrum completely was a good idea. But honestly this issue probably has the most knitworthy items out of all the recent issues. I counted about 7 things I would really want to knit. That's a pretty good percentage. My favorites are Maresa and rpm. The legwarmers might actually do me good since my hubby likes to keep the A/C set at "artic tundra".

Thumbs up for me. Go, Knitty!

I like it as well  Cheesy I think I need to learn how to knit socks though. I really, really do.

I'm just getting back into this, but if any pictures are missing, let me know. Photobucket hates me.

If you look up the submission guidelines, it tells you what kind of patterns they're looking for for future issues.  I always check that so I know what to expect.  I'm sneaky like that.

I love RPM, Manresa, and the calla lilies.  RPM might have to be my first sock project.

I think the sock monkey hat and the tulip booties are cute. And if I ever learn how to knit socks, I'm sure I'll be going back to this issue for the sock patterns! It does make sense, to me, to have an issue full of smaller items to work on in the summer so you're not sitting under a pile of wool sweater parts when it is boiling outside.  Wink

I don't know...I think it's cool to have so many small projects, I especially liked the wavy tuque (sorry, french canadian here...hehe) and the legwarmers, but I just hope that the fall issue will have more big projects...

Check out the ramblings

My faves are Fetching and Perdita (that's what the lace cuff is called, yes?).  They're definitely on my to-be-made list.

I have a short attention span, so small things are my favorite - I love knitting gloves and socks. So I'm a fan of this issue.
