It says it will hit newsstands December 12.

Projects here.

Ever since they presented me with my Central Park Hoodie, I have adored this magazine and it looks like this issue will be good too.
14  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / What is your favorite pattern of all time? on: November 13, 2006 06:48:36 PM
It can be one you have knit or haven't.

Usually, my favorite pattern is that of whatever I'm working on or have finished because I go through stages of knitlove. I do think the clapotis is the most clever pattern ever and also gives you a result that is very pretty and wearable.

What about you? I would love to hear what patterns you guys adore because I am perpetually in need of a new project.
15  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / cabled wrap sweater pattern? on: November 02, 2006 05:07:45 PM
I'm looking for a pattern for a sweater with a wide ribbed collar, cables and a belt.  In my mind it would overlap for a few inches and therefore have shaping?

And yes, I've seen Starsky at knitty.com. I'm not a fan of the motif and I want it to overlap a little more and be cozier looking.

Does anyone know of anything? I'm kind of craving this sweater and feeling desperate.

I have a bag of rowan polar in terms of yarn but  any gauge would be fine: I don't have a problem buying more yarn.

17  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / heart shaped cable? on: September 20, 2006 03:24:44 PM
I haven't found one in my trusty Barbara Walker's. Am I not looking hard enough? Am I not looking in the right places? Please advise me.

My mom wants a heart cable scarf. Not a heart lace. A heart cable. And you know, I'm a daughter so I want to please her.
18  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / fiction books about knitting on: August 23, 2006 11:05:42 AM
I just got a really good book yesterday and as I just finished it, I wanted to tell everyone here about it! It's about three best friends in a knitting circle, and as their projects develop so do their lives...they use all those crazy things like knitting for other people, the boyfriend sweater curse to make a really good story. They each have their own seperate love story, too...it's like Sex and the City but instead of meeting at the diner for brunch every week, they meet to knit! The back of the book has drink recipes..

The book is Knitting Under the Influence by Claire LaZebnik and it's really good.

I've also read Chicks With Sticks by Elizabeth Lenhard which is a young adult novel about a group of girls who bond through their knitting and become best friends. I'd definately recommend that for any young knitter. It has some silly patterns at the back of the book.
19  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / ahh i can't magic loop. on: August 22, 2006 07:56:22 PM
I need some serious help please, because I feel like a moron. I have never really had a problem with dpns, but I love learning new techniques so I went out and bought myself a forty inch sz 1 addi turbo so I could magic loop myself some socks. I cast on for the Child's First Sock in Knitting Vintage Socks and made my loop, but...

Joining in the round is really awkward. I managed to knit one stitch but I can't seem to manuever it so that another stitch fits off the needle. It's like when you're knitting with a circular needle that's too short. And I know it shouldn't seem too short because I have seen evidence of people knitting teeny toe-ups on magic loop, and I have 63 stitchs...so, can someone try and explain how I should be knitting from the loop? Please?

This was the link I was using to learn.
20  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / free purled argyle toe-up sock pattern? i know i saw it somewhere! on: August 05, 2006 06:58:15 PM
I recall seeing a free pdf pattern for toe-up socks where there were argyle-triangles mimicked by purl stitches. I remember it was on size 2 needles and sock yarn and availble on the author's blog...but I don't remember whose blog it was! Help?!
