Two more new knitting magazines have found their way to the shop, packed with ideas for fall stitching!
This issue of Vogue Knitting is anchored by two spreads of color-themed pattern collections, one all in teal, and another all in black and white.
I also spotted a feature on double knitting, a technique that creates two layers of fabric at once, making a cozy, reversible piece. This “Semicircular Double-Knit Shawl” is made in three shades of Fibre Company Canopy Fingering, a lovely yarn we just welcomed to the shop this month.
Interweave Knits Gifts is an annual special issue full of knitted gift ideas, Interweave’s yearly reminder to start working on holiday gifts before it’s too late.
You’ll find a wider variety of patterns in this issue than most, going beyond garments and accessories to include home goods, decorations, and things for children.
Some of these patterns are aimed at last-minute gift-knitters, or those with long lists of handknit-worthy recipients, who know the value of a beautiful gift that works up quickly. To that end, I noticed two familiar yarns from our Super-Bulky Weight department put to good use in this issue. The “Alpaca Poncho” below is made in Plymouth Baby Alpaca Grande, and the “Orchid Scarf” calls for Berroco Peruvia Quick.
Come by the shop to browse the latest magazines, which can be found on the teacart in the front room, right as you enter the shop. See you there!
