New (to me!) Knitting and Quilting magazines!
Lucky me! I found these knitting and quilting magazines today. I've been drooling over some of the patterns!
I especially like the Botanica Medallion Cardigan on the cover of the Spring/Summer 2009 Vogue Knitting - though I'd be hesitant to actually call it a "cardigan" myself - I love the overall simplicity of the basic design using more intricate knitting stitches to create this!
And I love that Vine and Leaf Beret in pink on the cover of the Fall 2009 Vogue Knitting - there are a couple more hats inside that are perfect too!
The quilting magazines have me thinking that maybe, just maybe, I should give quilting another try! There is a cool quilt that uses machine embroidery and the maker used tools! as the focus! hammer, drill, table saw, etc. I like it! The maker took a year and a half to finish hers ... I'm not sure I have that patience.
