Spring IK Preview

ugh!
So if you haven't checked out the preview for the new Interweave Knits, go peak. Some great projects (at least in the thumbnails) by fave bloggers Euny Jang-See Euny Knit, Entrelac socks HOLY COW! Stephanie Japel-Glampyre Knits (great sweater!) and Roza's Socks by Grumperina. But HOLY BUTT-FLOSS did you see the knitted thong? nah, unh uh, that's wrong..just very...wrong!

I have been so depressed hearing about this issue that I can't bear to even check out the thumbnails. Is IWK going the way of Knit.1 and other teeny bopper knit mags? Say it ain't so.

I liked a few things in the new IK - but with almost every knit mag out there, I find it's a crap(otis) shoot! OT - Lisa, honest, I'm not rigging the word verification (I would if I could, cause I'm just naughty that way) you've definitely got some of the best ones yet :)! I am knitting lace simply as a form of self-flagellation. I won't wear it, and all those loosey goosey stitches go against my precision brain. Hopefully, folks aren't fibbing about "the magic of blocking" that I keep hearing about!

Lisa, I've been reading your blogs but too lazy to comment. I was sobered by your post about your live-in grandma. Taking care of an older person like that is a huge job, and a real act of love. I am completely humbled by the care you show her. (and me...complaining about being home with DS)

I love thrift stores!! The other day found a bunch of pants and hoodies for DS -- he is over six feet tall and growing (only 14). Tall and very skinny. A bit tricky to dress. At least it's an easy uniform. Baggy pants. Huge hoodies. And I found a super cozy yellow zippered hoodie for me...and an enamel ware french la crueset pot (for choc. fondue of course), and a funky pin for shawls and sweaters...and that espresso yarn. MMMmmmmm...

What?? Not gonna knit a thong? Why ever not?? :)
