Today its so cold I was hoping for some hand-knit hand and foot warmers.  Tongue I've been staring at these patterns in longing. Of course, I have a few WIPs to finish first...

I've got knitting needles, and I'm not afraid to use them.

Actually, Summer Knitty has almost always been a themed kind of issue. This year it was "Extremities", last year it was the "Man issue",
and the year before in was "Sex in the Knitty".  It's topic is usually announced in the submission info so designers will know what types
of projects to submit. The cool weather stuff is generally in the Spring issue.

In the FAQ it now says that Summer Knitty is for warm weather things. There may be a theme for this issue (small, portable knitting), but it's also warm weather. Which is completely fine with me because I don't generally like knitting summer things. Too weird for me.

I just have a few words: nitwit, blubber, oddment, tweak.

there it is!! Does anybody who has looked at the socks and their patterns have a reccomendation of the pair that would be easiest to start?

Thank you!

I was hoping for more warm-weather knits as well.   But I always am.   Living in Florida that's all I knit.

Oh I feel you there! I'm in SC (just moved back from FL) and I'm always on the lookout for things I can actually use here.

I was excited about a sock and hat issue but now that I've looked over the patterns I've lost much of my enthusiasm.
The bracelets are pretty neat but not something I'd be able to carry off.
The lilies are cute but I don't actually care to knit them.
I like the look of the halfdome's decreases. I may use that on another pattern.
The baudelaire socks are lovely but I'm not sure about knitting or wearing them. They certainly don't look shoe friendly. Then again, most of the socks in this issue seem that way to me. Sad, since I'm on a big sock kick at the moment.
Widdershins and maybe knucks are the only ones I think I'd actually knit.

I was really really hoping for a cute "summer" top or two (like I said, warm climate so I can use a cooler top all year long). I love quick portable knits, I just wouldn't use most of the items there. *sigh*
Oh well.

I love maze!  Cute hat, the maze pattern looks cool (though could be a headache...?).  And I love hemp.  Lasts forever--you can wash it at any temp. and it just gets nicer the more you wash it!

And I have to make fetching.  And the knuckle gloves--good little Xmas gifts (can't start thinking too soon).  Too bad they don't include the embroidery pattern for those gorgeous trees on the purple ones.

oh... i have no use for hats or gloves (never gets cold enough here), and i'm very, very unenthused about socks.

i guess those fair isle legwarmers are nice, but i don't think i'd ever wear them.

Anytime I can knit up stuff on my teeny tiny Clover circs, I am a happy girl.  So many rockin' patterns in this issue -- Love, love, love the Summer Knitty!

WHOA!!!! This new knitty is looking awesome!

I got a new job and now I'm thinking I should bus it to Delta everyday to get more knitting time in!!! If only I could walk over to Elann to pick up my orders!!!!


No, I was merely reading the Muggle magazines. I do love knitting patterns.

i'm...okay with this knitty. not disappointed, not jumping up and down enthusiastic. i am bummed that it's the last theme issue though! i always thought the themes were cool.

for those of you wanting warm weather knits, browse the archives! there are quite a few in there. the weather doesn't really affect my knitting. i live in northern california where the weather is totally mild year round, so i have use for warm socks and hats, even on some days in july.  Smiley
