I love getting mail, especially when there is a knitting magazine in the box!  Recently, I received the January 2011 issue of Creative Knitting and the Winter 2010/11 issue of knitsimple.   Here's a bit of what you will find inside these issues:

Nice and cozy, perfect for keeping warm on a chilly day

This issue also has a bonus pull-out with patterns from Bernat, and a coupon for $1 off Bernat yarn.  (Patterns include blankets to knit for Project Linus)

Entrelac Throw - Page 41, Designed by Thanh Nguyen and knit in a DK/Light Worsted yarn

Simply gorgeous!  If you are not familiar with entrelac, this project may seem a bit daunting, but it really isn't as hard as you may think.  A 'workshop' in entrelac is on page 76 to help you out.  This is going on my (very long) list of must knit!

Textured Cardi - Page 31, Designed by Mari Lynn Patrick and knit in a Chunky weight yarn
Sample was knit with Patons Shetland Chunky
This sweater pattern features alternating cables with reverse stockinette stitch and is sure to keep the chill away

This issue also has a number of cute patterns for kids and a few crochet patterns as well.

Be sure to pick up your copy of these magazines before they are gone!

Happy Knitting!
