The new knitty is up! While this warrants some general excitement in and of itself, I’m feeling lukewarm about this particular issue.
- the garter stitch elephant
- the peacock mittens–this is the only pattern I really adored this time around. I’m thinking they would be fabulous with a dark brown background and lighter blue or green accents… perhaps I could combine the sparkly brown llama yarn and peacock-titled AVFKW sock yarn I have in my stash? They’re both sport weight, but could be knit at a very tight gauge, I think.
- Coralie earrings
- Celtic Triad socks
Victoria and Iced feel like almost the same sweater to me, and it’s a sweater that conjures up either old pipe-smoking men or sturdy farm women in waders in my mind. I’m not big on the boxy cardigan silhouette + shawl (or shawl-ish) collar.
I admit this issue has a lot of clever little projects for handspun, and maybe I’ll be more excited when I see a few versions of, say, Purlieu or Jewels worked up in unique handspun yarns…
