knit lurve

Circumstances dictate that I couldn't actually purchase the latest copy of Knitscene (on shelves as of yesterday) but they sure couldn't keep me from window shopping!

Unusual cable projects and stunning modern knits are featured in the Fall 2009 offering of Knitscene ... as well as a great tutorial for reading lace charts and counting cable rows! Seriously, when they say "must knit" projects on the cover - they really mean it!

As someone who is still oogling her Winter/Spring issue ... I lurve this mag!
