IK, You’ve Outdone Yourself

My Interweave Knits Winter 2006 issue was in my mailbox this evening.
The quick scoop:

  • This issue is heavy. There’s a whole lotta projects in there!
  • Like always, even though I saw the preview, I’m so much more excited after flipping through the magazine itself.

Favorite Project – Kate’s A Cardigan for Arwen


This project has so many things going for it.

  • It’s clever with its reversible cable along the front and around the hood.
  • Its namesake is one of my favorie LOTR characters.
  • Its hood is pointy in a playful sorta way.
  • It’s a cardi so it’s great for layering.
  • It’s versatile and will be as nice paired with khakis at work, or with jeans and a t-shirt for running errands.

Remember when I said I might not knit another sweater this year? Well, I’m seeing me knitting this very soon in a vibrant sapphire blue.
Added Later: About 20 minutes after I wrote this post, I came across NaKniSweMo — National Knit a Sweater Month. I don’t have to tell you that I’ve been looking online at yarns since then, do I?

  1. It’s funny how the magazine is always better/more interesting than the online preview. Very much looking forward to mine. Perhaps it will be waiting for me when I get home this evening.

  2. I think this issue actually has fewer projects than many other issues (wasn’t fall 04 37?), but the patterns are all SO. LONG. leading to heaviness.

  3. Ooh, I saw the pictures of that one on the website, and I lurrrrve it. I want/need one. :)
    And no, it isn’t just the Lord of the Rings connection that I’m obsessing over. Although I am obsessing over that, too.

  4. After a year of knitting only one full-sized, sleeved grown up sweater (and not even for me), I now have three sweaters in the works. One’s on the needles and almost done, and two more have been wound and are ready for swatching. I guess I need to sign up for the NaKniSweMo!

  5. i too got my IK yesterday and was so excited about it. That cardigan was one of my favs too… oh and thanks, just signed up for NaKniSweMo ;-)!!
