Knitting Traditions (Special Issue), $16.95
The new special magazine Knitting Traditions from Interweave has arrived! It’s full of quality patterns and articles on traditional knitting techniques and old fashioned aesthetics. This issue is VERY informative, including an article on the anatomy of a cowichan sweater and knitting 2 socks at once (a la War and Peace, with one inside the other). There are lots of sock, mitten, shawl and traditional style sweaters.
Piecework Magazine $8.99
We just got in a special Historical Knitting Issue of Piecework magazine. Check out their website, there is a freebie pattern and a profile of Rowan Yarns that also includes a pattern for a Kaffe Fasset style scarf (the scarf looks like tedious knitting, you have to changes colours manual can use one of the yarns from the Kafe Fasset Design Line by Regia to get the exact same striping effect). It also features a new pattern stitch by Barbara Walker (cover).
