Knit Simple Spring/Summer 2007 Review

Vogue Knitting - Knit Simple - Spring/Summer 2007 issue - review

This is one of my favorite knitting magazines. Nice ad announcing Nicky Epstein's new book entitled Knitting Never Felt Better.

Definitely on my wish list!

Great article with Edie Eckman as well as a pattern for a granny square cardi designed by Dora Ohrenstein http://www.crochetinsider.com - too bad I don't crochet.

Fabulous patterns in "Stripe Dreams". A definite must-make is this Cabana Cutie designed by Mari Lynn Patrick.
Side to side construction with Saucy Sport yarn by Reynolds/JCA, and how about this cool matching beach bag. The bag was designed by Tanis Gray and uses Cotton Stria by Manos del Uruguay. The Cabana Cutie calls for 2 each of Parakeet Green, Faded Gold, Cream Fraisce and Deep Ocean plus 1 each of Sage, Coral Reef, Persimmon and Orange. Priced at $2.95 at WEBS www.yarn.com total for project approx $36 not including the discount, however I wasn't able to find deep ocean (could I substitute Maritime Blue), Sage, Persimmon or Orange......more searching in order. www.cottonclouds.com carries this yarn in a larger amount of color selection, but not by the 'names' listed above. The bag requires 8 skeins in assorted colors. www.purlsoho.com seems to have all of the colors in stock at $8.50/skein.

The magazine also has a great section, and at least 6 patterns for summer tank tops. A wonderful article on making booties. Great baby sweater and onesie in beige, turquoise and white...great color combinations and beautiful photography.
