You know spring is on its way when you get your hands on the spring Interweave knits.
My subscription ended long ago and I debated renewing. I flipped through issues in the bookstore/LYS as they came out. Nothing was really exciting me. A few knits...here and there...but nothing worth picking up the magazine for.
Nothing until Spring 2009!
I don't know what it is but this issue has so many knitable-wearable-knits. At least for me.
I love the cover sweater. Diminishing Rib Cardigan.
Gorgeous. Simple. A great addition to any knit wardrobe.
So, I cast on...and knit (a little obsessively).
The photo depicts the results of day one...220 yrds of 220.
I am now in the bottom ribbing section. It is a good tv watching/knit 'n chatting knit.
Hopefully I will be sporting my new spring knit...in my spring colour I like to call raspberry (depending on the light - it is more fushia in the daylight)...in no time.
Well what's the rush you ask?
I just really want to cast on for the Zickzack Tunic. Seriously. I love this knit. It is so me.
I have swatched already and have so much to tell you!
Oh and then there will be the Whisper Cardigan. And I love the lace in the issue...and Eunny's Blooming cotton scarf (just imagine that in wool for the winter...gorgeous)...the petal halter...hmmm...
If you need me I will be here knitting...
