"Vogue Knitting" holiday issue magazine is filled with patterns, interviews and 'what's new, what's now and what's next in knitting'. From the articles, photographs and even the advertisements you are sure to dog ear pages you want to knit and refer back to.
The 'Spotlight' column has an interview with Mari Lynn Patrick. She has been designing upscale sweaters for the past 40 years and feels her best work is in the future. Deborah Newton has an inquiring mind and as a result knitters benefit. She swatch's...see where that takes her new cable patterns.
Meg Swanson has a conversation with Barbara G. Walker. Barbara is the type of woman who jumps in with both feet, when she finds a subject she likes. In 1970 she coined the term 'mosaic knitting', also known as slip stitch knitting. This method allows you to carry one strand of yarn at a time, while making two-color patterns. A slip stitch in knitting is when stitches are moved from one needle to the other without being knitted. This is the tip of her iceberg.
Book reviews are always interesting to read. Lace shawls are still tops. Colorwork sweaters and instructions are given. Twenty-five patterns are included. The magazine fits nicely in your knitting bag. Don't feel like knitting, read your magazine.
