Weekend knits

on September 19, 2014

So, I got myself a copy of Knit Now Issue 39.

The magazine comes with a cute little teddy bear tape measure project kit. It contains a tape measure and yarn to knit the cover. I think it is a lovely idea and can be a nice gift for someone before or after you knit the cover.

I like the art work for the package. Gingham has been my favorite for many years. The first doll I made when I was 10 is dressed in the pink gingham checks just like this one and still sitting in the living room of my parents’ house.

This issue has many nice designs for autumn with woodland theme. I very much admire these designers who can make up patterns for garments.

My favorites in this issue are
this amazing jumper with owl pattern

and these cute fox slippers.

Aren’t they cute?

The magazine has many patterns to make quick and easy weekend projects.IMG_6685

And my little witch girl, of course.

Thank you very much to all who have already gotten the magazine. I hope you will enjoy it. And don’t forget to show me your creations, too!

  1. I love those slippers! I would love to knit so many of those gorgeous things you’ve shown, but I don’t have the time *sighs* the eternal problem!

      I know. I feel the same, too. “I would make this when I am old and have nothing much to do.” I think sometimes, but I heard someone say exactly the same thing at the spinners’ meeting, and she is 80 years old……

    I love the teddy tape measure kit but I don’t like the cotton they have supplied with it as I can’t seem to knit with it. Do you remember the tapestry wool colours that you used as I would prefer to use those? Thank you. I am going to try the witch aswell Your designs are so lovely!
