I just noticed that on this here blog that purports to be a knitting blog, I have not blogged about knitting since July. For shame.
Right before we left Santa Fe I headed over to the Borders to work on the old dissertation as I did a couple of times a week. On the way out I decided to pick up a copy of the fall issue of Vogue knitting, because I had seen a few patterns over on ravelry that looked intriguing. Now, I'm a devoted Interweave subscriber. It has good articles and elegant and inspiring designs (most of the time). When I first started knitting Matthew bought me a Vogue knitting (the one with the twinkle shopping tunic, before it was the shopping tunic, on the cover) for Christmas, but at the time my lack of skills made me wary of the magazine. Now, I think maybe I'm ready for it. I like that it has some very fashion forward designs and present a way to own afordable designer clothing. However, it is vogue and as such it has some really crazy crap as well, things no real person would ever wear or knit, but with over thirty patterns to choose from there is bound to be stuff I like. So, I am seriously considering getting a subscription to another knitting magazine. Here are the patterns I am planning to knit from the fall vogue (patterns 10,18,23):
