Don't you love when you come home and find something other than Stop & Shop fliers and Verizon envelopes in the mail? You pick up the stack, it's surprising heavy, so you start digging and find...a magazine! That's what happened for Interweave Knits (IK) subscribers last week. The Spring 2011 issue has arrived!
If you are not a subscriber, you may not have seen this beautiful issue yet. No worries though, we have it in the shop. It has some great articles: a review of wool and cotton blend yarns, a primer on designing, and encouragement to dive into Fair Isle work. In all honesty though, most of us get the magazine because of the patterns. The first thing we do when IK arrives is flip through to see the patterns and what yarns they call for to see if Fresh Purls carries them or if they are already in our stash.
This issue is packed with projects that we have the yarn for!
Here's a list of the ones we have the yarn in stock and some links to Ravelry:
1. En Pointe Pullover, p. 20 (Louet Kid Lin Lace Weight)
2. Heliotropic Pullover, p. 23 (Rowan's Lenpur Linen)
3. Rose Lace Stole, p. 56 (Manos De Uruguay Lace)
4. Gossamer Smocked Tunic, p. 95 (We'd substitute Rowan Kid Silk Haze because we don't carry the Shibui Knits Silk Cloud)
If you aren't quite ready for Spring and Summer knitting, we do still have the Winter 2010 issue of Interweave Knits and the Vogue Knitting Winter 2010/11, and Vogue Knitting Holiday 2010 in stock!
