Vogue Knitting Early Fall 2011 Preview

Get it while it's hot!  The word is out about Vogue Knitting Magazine Early Fall 2011. 

Capes are in and we've already shipped Manos del Uruguay Wool Clasica to customers as far away as Australia for the Reindeer Capelet. (Remember, it's winter there!)

Mohair, always a favorite, is also featured and the winners of Vogue's Magical Mohair competition are revealed. Now the staff are eying the colors we feature of Debbie Bliss Angel wondering which to pick first.

Recognize this?

It's a schematic.  We spend a lot of time explaining how important this feature of a pattern can be to customers. Carol Sulcoski's The Big Little Picture: Making Sense of Schematics article does an excellent job detailing what the schematic is for and how to make the information is portrays work for you and your projects.  "The beauty of the schematic is that it tells you exactly what size each piece of your garment needs to be." Who knew?!

Of course there are lots of great designs in this issue too.  The one that has made my queue is the Long Vest by John Brinegar.  
This one is knit in one of our favorite winter yarns - Rowan Lima! I think it would look stunning in Berroco Flicker too.

We have already sold through 2 orders of this magazine in the shop. It's a good one!
