I just received the Winter/Spring 2009 issue of Knitcircus in the mail today. I’m planning to (hopefully soon) cast on for the Kate Cardigan which is featured on the cover. Isn’t it lovely?  There’s already a Kate KAL on Ravelry.  Let’s hope my knitting schedule clears up soon because I’m itching to start this sweater!


This issue is full of really beautiful designs, yarn and book reviews, and even some recipes! There’s also a section titled In praise of hats!!! featuring 6 hat patterns, one of which is my Musical Notes Hat.  When am I going to find time to knit these? I love the purple and grey Mitsouko Hat, the Vanilla Twist Hat




What are you waiting for?

Last month I got terribly busy with other things that had tight deadlines (designing, knitting, more designing, ripping, cursing, reknitting, etc…), so I neglected to mention that my sewing pattern for knitting needle cases has been published and is now available in the July 2008 issue #3 of Knitcircus!

What a super little publication! Not only does it contain a mix of knitting and sewing patterns, there’s also a recipe for “Cosmopolitan Cupcakes”. In every issue it has yarn reviews, book and product reviews, and a profile of a knitter (this issue is Jeannette Cross from Madison, WI). If you’re interested in purchasing a copy of the magazine, you can order through Knitcircus’ web site. And I believe my 2nd and final needle case pattern for circular and double pointed knitting needles will be published in one of the upcoming issues.

Since my knitting needle case pattern is not actually a knitting pattern, I unfortunately can’t add it to the vast pattern library in Ravelry. This makes me sad because I want to see how many lovely knitters have sewn my pattern. While I understand Ravelry’s rules about this, and I certainely want to follow the rules and I especially don’t want to clutter up their pattern library with non-knitting patterns (even though it pertains directly to knitting), it does make me a little sad.

So if you get a copy of Knitcircus and make a needle case, please let me know. I’d love to see what fabrics and buttons you used.
