Having finished the Jaywalkers, what should I work on next?
More socks, of course!
I have two skeins of Bernat Sox in Navy Blue and a pattern for Retro Rib Socks from a back issue of Interweave Knits, and that works out just great.
Speaking of IK, the newest issue showed up at my house recently. Did y’all notice the “Ravelings” from Amy? And there are some mighty fine projects in there… made from some might pricey yarns. Anybody got a good substitute for Goddess Yarns Phoebe? Or for Gedifra Cotton Merino?
The new Knitty is up, and, as usual, there are a bunch of gorgeous things!
Nautie is just the cutest little thing. I like UnGranny Smith a lot, although I’m not generally a big fan of the color green. And I think I’d want a substitute for the Lily Chin yarn anyway. Anatolia is lovely; I’m not sure how flattering it would look on me. Tendrils is lovely, even though the long drop-stitch scarf reminds me ever-so-slightly of Clapotis, probably because mine doesn’t curl like the original. And Reid is adorable. Have I mentioned we have a 4-year-old niece?
I usually like the Spring issue, since where I live, we don’t have winter. We barely have autumn. So, while I love soft, thick cabled wool sweaters, they’re not terribly practical. The spring and summer issues are when the cottons come out to play.
