I know it came out yesterday, but I finally got a chance to take a look at Knitty’s Deep Fall issue, which marks the beginning of celebrations for the preeminent online knitting magazine’s 10th anniversary. I remember when Knitty was about the only online knitting magazine out there and it has always published really fun, innovative and interesting patterns that I and lots of other knitters love to stitch.
Some of the standout patterns for me in this issue include the Tin Roof Scarf, a fun smocked piece worked in a silk/stainless steel yarn and designed by Kristi Potter; Maureen Moody’s Autumn Fire Cardigan, a must for lovers of stranded knitting and autumnal colors; the Party Mix Pullover from Julia Farwell-Clay, a cute raglan number using handspun yarn; Earthbound Socks by Carissa Browning, worked from the toe up with a pretty leaf pattern; and the Phalangees Fingerless Gloves from Jodie Gordon Lucas, which feature maze-like colorwork and funky finishing to make the individual finger holes.
To celebrate 10 years of Knitty goodness, friends of the magazine Tom Bihn and Jennie the Potter have come up with limited edition goodies you can buy (I have always wanted a Swift Bag!) There are also features about Andean knitting motifs, an updated balaclava, product and yarn reviews and even a crossword puzzle.
Happy birthday, Knitty!
