You know what ungranny smith reminds me of?

http://neoknits.blogspot.com/2006/03/its-ready.html


Except not as good.

Oooh, that's a gorgeous cardigan! Heh, I wouldn't even compare it with Ungranny Smith. Like a lot of people here, I'm pretty disappointed with the new patterns in Knitty... although I do think Convertible is pretty nice. Everything else just seems kinda... well, it's not my cup of tea, though there were some pretty baby patterns and things.

Nothing I'm really desperate to make though. *crying*

I've taken alittle time to come to an opinion on this knitty, some of the patterns have grown on me, i'd defiantly consider making 1 or 2 of them as gifts for  relatives.

Not really that keen on pedicure socks though ( sorry guys i know you like them) just not my thing i suppose, also their similar to these from issue 2 of spunmag

Knitty would be selling themselves short if you they only appealed the "trendy" or "younger, hipper" knitters out there. As much as we hate to admit it here on Craftster, there are still old school/traditional (for the lack of a better word)  knitters out there. They need an good free pattern resource, too.


Also, they can only publish based on what's submitted. Maybe no young, tredy things were submitted this issue.

In my humble opinion...

Great Okay all on their own:
hedera (I love!)
topi (except I don't wear hats, oh well)
jamesey (only for a really skinny guy, like my hubby)

Might be good with tweaking:
mesilla (or maybe not?)

The Eighties are DEAD, people:
double scoop
jardin anglais
ungranny smith

If I knew anyone I liked enough to knit complicated stuff for:
anatolia
exchequered (not in these horrid colors tho)
tendrils

Ugly, Scary, and Gave me Nightmares:
nautie (shrieks and runs away)
tiny tether (just you wait till that's covered with arrowroot biscuits and drool!)
convertible (I'm stuck, I'm stuck! Help!!! Cough, cough)

Nope, I'm not preggers, but thanks for asking:
t-twist

Made me say, eh...
nagano sakura
reid (cute, but I don't know anyone this age)

The articles?

Priceless.

Emms

BTW, all these patterns are free. So I don't think I can really judge them so harshly. I mean, aren't we lucky to have all this free stuff?

Ahem.

I agree almost completely Emms!  only differences being that I am in total love with reid and I'm a fat girl so I'm considering doing t-twist.

I am a fat girl too and I implore you to not do T-twist! Its so unflattering for rotund girls- trust me! You don't want to put that much work into a shapeless sack!

I think the knitted t-shirt in general is unflattering on most body types, especially at larger gauges (i.e. anything above a US5 needle).  I'm not a big girl, but I still wouldn't knit it--it'd add at least 10 more lbs to my middle.

I'm no skinny mini either, and I must agree with Emms. Do not knit that! Find a similar top with some better shaping. I know that if I wore that it would hang straight down off my boobs and make me look like I must have a gigantic stomach hidden under all that knit fabric. Ewww, no good. Personally I keep coming back to this pattern when I'm looking for something with short sleeves.

I have not knit it yet, I just look at it every so often and think, "Wow that is an incredibly flattering sweater." Someday when I am allowed to buy more yarn I will knit it.
