I treated myself to the spring issue of Knit Simple last night, after spending a lot of time in my car doing things like backing repeatedly into a curb during a series of disastrous parallel parks.
This is just a nice magazine, don't you find? And - this is rare for me because I get so caught up in working out my own designs - I think I might knit some of these patterns instead of just enjoying looking at them.
I could really use a little something like this, for example. Not for summer probably, but in cooler weather to throw over a long sleeved T like a bright little vest.
This cardi though - I would totally use this in summer. Bit late to knit it for this year, but for next? Perfect.
And check out these hearts. I am particularly fond of #11 by Marni Faris, the one with the stickie-outie ruffle, which is giving me ideas. Oh dear. Just when I wanted to knit other people's patterns!
