Knitscene Summer 2011 and Love of Knitting Spring 2011

In this issue of Knitscene, you will find the following, plus lots more:

  1. 7 Simple Summer Tops + 7 quick accessories
  2. Explore Garter Stitch with Stephen West
  3. The Magic of Mitered Corners
  4. The Artful Knits of Amy Christoffers
Some patterns I like:

  1. Embassy Scarf by Amy Polcyn, a light and airy drop stitch and garter stitch pattern  creates a feminine scarf
  2. Mayville Cardigan by Sarah Fama, a super stretchy stitch is used for this simple jacket.  The sleeve silhouette is easily achieved - drop sleeves are worked without shaping to give a wide cuff and relaxed shoulder.
Love of Knitting Spring 2011 has 28 flirty spring knits - scarves, shells, vests and cardigans.  Also, learn to knit bobbles.

Buttermilk Shell by Melissa Leapman - wear a long sleeved shirt underneath for those cool spring days, and alone for the warm summer nights
Cropped Eyelet Vest by Irina Poludnenko, a beautiful, feminine vest featuring a picot edging and pretty lace pattern
Sunny Day Jumper by Amy Polcyn for Aslan Trends for little girls - super adorable with adjustable straps make it wearable for this and several seasons to come.
Azure Shawl by Nancy A. Boccuzzi is a beautiful lacy shawl with a ruffled edge is knit with Lucatape  yarn, by Lucci Yarns. This pretty yarn has tiny sequins woven into the fiber to give it a little something extra special.  Very pretty!
