The new Fall 2009 Issue of Knitscene has arrived and it's a good issue!
The 'sneak peek' on knitting daily was not particularly representative of the patterns in this issue. This issue has plenty or really nice patterns that you'll want to wear. Many of the styles are simple shapes, vintage and retro inspire(a few 40's and a few early 70's), 4 really nice patterns by Melissa Wehrle, a few great hats, a few great scarves, some nice socks. A few pieces are unwearable, but they are a small minority and don't ruin the experience of the magazine. They've also used some normal sized people as models, which is nice because you can get an idea of how things will actually look on you. There are also some very useful articles on how to read lace charts and how to count rows between crosses in a cable (I need to learn this one in particular!).
