Has anyone here taken a stab at either of the knitting patterns shown in Adorn Magazine?
Pattern Play, a sweater vest in fair isle
http://adornmag.com/webexclusives-fair-isle.php
or
Ladylike Looks, a cropped sweater shrug
http://adornmag.com/webexclusives-cropped-jacket.php

I was considering doing either of these, and searched for anything I could about them on craftster, but to no avail. I'm thinking about subbing yarn for both of them, as I have a buttload of acrylic yarn that's just begging to be used (yay college!). Any thoughts/comments on these? Thanks in advance!

Thanks for mentioning this - I hate to say it - but I've never seen this magazine!!! Looks great! Do you subscribe - is it worth it??

I'll take a look at the patterns - they are cute!! I'm sure you could use acrylic - as long as you get the gauge... it may change the look some - but if you don't care - what the heck!! I LOVE that vest too!! The colors are what really grab me.

You can never change the past. But by the gace of God, you can win the future. So, remember those things which will help you forward, but forget about the things which will only hold you back.
