knitscene Fall 2008

What is knitscene fall 2008fun to make and wearable in real life? What’s slightly quirky and unique without being outlandish? What is a good use of a yarn? What do people need in their closets? The collection you’ll find in this issue of Knitscene is what we worked up on the basis of those questions. These are not novelty projects or purely conceptual, these are work-horse knits that fit into everyday life and can become funky or trendy through styling. At the end of the day, though phenomenal and intriguing as knits, these projects are real clothes. There’s no greater pleasure than getting repeated use out of a sweater you made—loving every stitch, the way it looks with everything, washing it season after season and seeing it rebloom. You’ll be so glad you made it.  Buy knitscene Fall 2008 now $7.99.

February Lady Sweater Knitalong

I don’t know if you have all seen the February Lady Sweater that everfebruary sweateryone seems to be in love with, but it is a reworked adult size version of one of Elizabeth Zimmerman’s baby patterns which has always been so darn cute.  A very clever girl (oh no, not me) wrote the pattern and posted it on Ravelry and it seems to be on almost everybody’s wish list.   

Sooooo, with kind permission from the lovely Pam Wynne, we are going to do a Wool and Company Knitalong of the February Lady Sweater.  Yippee do I hear you say?  And how does that work.  Well because it is summer and we are all hot and sticky and somewhat far flung we will do it very loosely (the knitalong, not the knitting) … and at our own pace.   You can follow the progress on the blog.

First go and download the free pattern, (making sure it is Version 2.0), grab your size 8’s and rifle through your stash.  If nothing jumps up and screams that it is the perfect yarn for this project come on down to the store or order online from us because we will give you 15% off your February Lady Supplies!  And boy do we have supplies.  I am using Plymouth’s Tweed for mine, and others have chosen Dream in Color Classy, Jaeger Extra Fine Merino, Aurora 8 Cascade 220, Malabrigo, Araucania Cotton, Blue Sky Alpaca Organic Cotton and the list goes on and on.  Then register with us and we will put you into the drawing for some yummy and wonderful goodies.  Then get your gauge swatch done, (who me?… of course I did) and start your sweater.  Watch the blog and Ravelry for any hints, tips and tricks  that we have come up with or heard about from others to make your life easier.

Sometime in September or October we will have a February Festival and everyone can show off their fabulous Febs … easy as that.  Let me know if you have questions … and a very Happy February to you all.
