Huzzah for spring

This week I recognized an urgent need for more knitting needles of unusual size, resulting in some calling around to LYSes and a mad dash out last night into the freezing rain.

My reward?

I got to pick up the Spring issue of Interweave Knits!

I love this magazine. I don't think I've ever knit anything from it, because I'm always bogged down knitting something I thought of myself or else a sock, but that doesn't make any difference - I want to knit lots, and take such delight in all the wonderful designs and the fascinating articles and heck, even the ads. Actually, I love the ads.

Probably I should just subscribe, and I do keep meaning to, but there is something exciting about seeing it on the shelf in the grocery store or the counter in a shop full of yarn and people who are knitting together - something I would be sorry to give up.

(of course, if I had a subscription, I would probably get it a lot earlier, and the rush of that might compensate for that whole discovery-in-the-wild thing, mightn't it.)
