Knitting Today - New Magazine!

You can find the home page HERE, or follow on Twitter, or like on Facebook

Their premier issue was for  November/December 2010.  Of course, I picked it up as well as the latest issue, for January/February!  I think this magazine has promise.

The first issue features holiday patterns, such as Garland Lights designed by Jaqueline Milles, and some really cute ornaments designed by Clare Scope-Farrell (gingerbread man, bauble, and candy cane), plus other great patterns. Also has a book review section called Book Nook, Expert Q/A by Shannon Okey and of course, the standard 'basics/how to' section in the back.

Their second issue, the Love Issue, has some cute patterns for Valentines such as the Double Knit Heart Scarf designed by Marina Salume and Heart Hat designed by Jaqueline Milles.  You can get a free pattern for some adorable little stuffed hearts here.   Along with the Book Nook and Expert Q/A this issue has some great patterns, such as the Camel  Cape designed by Jaqueline Milles and Alyce Benevides and the Boyfriend Cardigan designed by Elena Malo.

AND, visit the website for your chance to win a copy of Modern Top-Down Knitting by Kristina McGowan.  Enter by January 11, 2011.

Happy Knitting!
