I got the Fall issue of Vogue Knitting the other day. There are some designs in it I like, such as this one:
Over all, though, I'm kind of disappointed. I'm having a hard time with this "Let's go back to the 80s" fashion revival. Are we supposed to pretend that we didn't look ridiculous the first time around? There's a pattern for a striped tunic with matching scarf- to be worn with leggings, of course- that's metallic for one stripe and angora for the other. It's so depressingly like sweaters I saw in 1987, and I didn't like them then, either.
I think the other reason I'm a bit disappointed in Vogue Knitting is because, not long after I subscribed, I started to get Interweave Knits. I LOVE that magazine. The designs in it appeal to me more, I guess. I still haven't gotten my fall issue yet, even though I've heard that some people all the way in Wales already have theirs, and everyone says it's wonderful. Bah. I'm not a patient person.
In other news- the cuff of my ugly sock is nearly an inch long. And I've swatched for a project I'm not certain whether I'll start right now or wait on a bit. We'll see.
