Some have been found at the LYS as old issues at a discount. (I am such a tightwad.)
And I have several Spin-Offs I picked up for FREE at a fiber gathering. In a box of magazines. Marked ‘Free, Help Yourself’. I looked around, and it appeared they meant me! So I picked up 8 or 10 copies from 2000 through 2005. Seems that spinning articles aren’t that dated really. Much like the art of spinning. Go figure.
My intention is to find the perfect, yet elusive, sweater pattern, that will fit the bill regarding yarn weight and yardage, my skill level, my style and wearability, etc, etc, etc.
What I have found is…
- An article on dying with food coloring
- The Tahki Stacy Charles free pattern website
- The Vogue Knitting website
- There is one EZ book I don’t have yet
- I may have to subscribe to Interweave Knits
- Vogue models look way. too. serious. to be modeling mittens
- A vintage weave-it loom to decorate my felted slippers would be an excellent addition (and I wonder if DSis has one…)
- I want the book ‘Simply Felt’ by Docherty and Emerson
- Three different articles on EZs life and times
- Excellent how-tos for picot cast-on and cast-off, fleece washing, and kitchener grafting
- The difference between fulling and felting and boiling (which I have forgotten now) (but could look up) (if I could find the right Spin-Off)
- Plenty of patterns that I want to knit. Enough to keep me shopping for yarn for a very long time.
- (And plenty of patterns that give me those what were they thinking moments…)
