Magazine week.

The magazine-makers of the world have been working overtime, it seems. Last week brought two new issues, Creative Knitting and Interweave Knits. I'd barely flipped through them when three more new magazines arrived. Rest assured, if you come by the shop this week, you're likely to find at least one compelling new project among these glossy pages.

Koigu Magazine is back with a nice follow-up to their premiere issue, which I wrote a bit about back in May. Look here for inspired and unusual uses of fingering weight and variegated yarns.

Knit Simple is here, too, full of cardigans, among other things.

The most impressive, in my opinion, has been Interweave Knits Accessories. The thing itself is stylishly designed, and the patterns are many and varied.

Cowls, hats, socks, mitts, and shawls--the kind of projects that knitters often make for gifts. It's a gift-giving season we're in, and it was gift-knitting that came to mind when I paged through this magazine. Take a look.

See you at the shop.
