Vogue Knitting Spring/Summer 2011

On the cover:
Exquisite Eyelets, Sexy Swimwear, Cool Citrus, Sheer Heat

What caught my eye:
Eyelet Wrap Top by Theresa Schabes, using Covington by Plymouth Yarn - Standard fitting, sleeveless wrap-around top in daisy stitch and smocked rib patterns.

Lace Cover-Up by Renee Lorion, using Linen by Claudia Hand Painted Yarns - this is a lace shawl seamed at one side, and gathered at the other to create a draped neckline.

Buttoned Lace Vest by Pat Olski, using Brown Sheep Company's Cotton Fleece - feminine vest with contrast color ribbed edges.

Also an article called To Purl or not to Purl by Meg Swansen "If you had learned to purl before you learned to knit, would purl be your favorite stitch and knitting feel a bit awkward?"

And Why Knot! by Nicky Epstein will give you some creative ideas for I-Cord.

More magazine reviews coming soon!  I was recently at the book store and stocked up on 'em!
