~winter vogue knitting~

The other day I picked up the latest Winter 09/10 issue of Vogue Knitting – even though it is midsummer here in New Zealand, the timing is quite good because it gives you plenty of time to decide what to make, and to actually get it made before winter begins.  Mind you, with my queue the length it is, I am not promising to actually achieve this!

I should subscribe as I usually do buy every issue and wouldn’t like to miss out on one, but I’ve found if you pop into Borders on Queen Street a couple of weeks after it hits the newsstands in the US, there is usually a big pile of airfreighted editions on the shelf!

So after perusing the designs in VK for a few days, here are my hits, misses and maybes:

Hits: 
#2 Shawl Collar Cardi by Cathy Carron
#4 Fair Isle Tunic by Jean Moss
#12 Cable Panel Tunic by Suvi Simola
#18 Striped Hoodie by Josh Bennett
#19 Men’s Vest by Josh Bennett
#20 Lace Edge Cardi by Coralie Meslin
#22 Fitted Jacket by Jennie Atkinson
#26 Ribbed Cardigan by Karola Gottwald
#31 Snowball Mittens by Elinor Brown
Maybes:
#3 Cowl Neck Pullover by Mari Lynn Patrick
#17 Man’s Cable Cardigan by Josh Bennett
#24 Raglan Cardigan by Tanis Gray
#27 Lace and Texture Scarf by Cathy Carron

Misses:
#1 Striped Cardigan by Brandon Mably
#16 Cowl Neck top by Twinkle
#7 Floral Cardigan by Josh Bennett
#21 Ruffled Cardigan by Shirley Paden

I’m not sure there is anything I will be rushing to knit in this issue.  I’d like to knit the Fair Isle Tunic at some stage just for fun, and maybe Tanis’s cute Raglan Cardigan – mainly because I have some stash that would work.

Interesting to see that Vogue will be introducing an Early Fall issue from this year – more to choose from can only be a good thing!
