Knitscene Winter/Spring 2011 has officially been out for a week now, and I'm so excited to see that so many of you really like it! I love working on Knitscene, and hearing such positive words about the projects makes my job even better. But you don't just have to take my word for how great this issue has been received—Kel at Fibre Space wrote a wonderful blog post about the whole issue.
Many readers seem to have fallen in love with Melissa Wehrle's Chiton Pullover. It's a perfect tee for a warm spring day—a day like the one we are not having in Colorado, where the high for the day is 1°. (Single digit temperatures boggle my mind, then again, I'm a transplant from Florida.) Melissa wrote a little bit about the tee on her blog.
The Kelbourne Woolen team of Courtney Kelley and Kate Gagnon Osborn also talk about their projects, the Bahía Shawl and Setesdal Love Hat, repsectively. Amy Christoffers also shares a little love for her Kenning Mitts, while Laura Nelkin gets down to the beading business on her gorgeous Bergamot Shawl. And Debbie O'Neill, our featured designer, goes more in-depth on her Belvedere Cardigan, Paperboy Cardigan, Picadill Cardigan, and Bas-Relief Socks.
But what about YOU? What patterns are you loving from this issue? What projects have you already cast on? Let me know what you're knitting! I've spotted some fantastic finished projects on Ravelry, especially Talitha Kuomi's Eternalism Vest and the Setesdal Love Hat. AND, if you're in the Raleigh-Durham area of North Carolina, stop by Downtown Knits in Apex to meet Lisa Shroyer, Esther Rodgers (of JazzTurtle Yarns on Etsy), and Talitha Kuomi (if she doesn't get snowbound in New England!) this Friday, February 4th, and see some of these awesome garments in person.
