Knitcircus Issue 11

Knitcircus Issue 11 is up and it’s a blockbuster.

Here’s how it works.  The articles, interviews, and project photos are is the online issue.  The photography is amazing.  Anyone can access these items.  To get the patterns, you must purchase a pdf which contains all 24 patterns in the issue.  Twenty four patterns for only $7.50.  This is the bargain of the year.

First you have to go “oooooooooh” over the cover.  That child is so precious I almost didn’t see the sweater.  Just almost.  Then you can page through the ezine and be awash in color.  Check out these:

  • Wendy Johnson has written an article about charting.
  • Natascha Grief interviewed Adrienne Martini who wrote Sweater Quest, My Year of Knitting Dangerously
  • Miss T talks to Cat Bordhi about her design process.
  • Jaala interviews Soulemama about nurturing your creativity in a busy, modern world.
  • Techknitter has a tutorial on felted mittens.  If you like embellishing your knitting, this is a must see.
  • Bezzie shares her Peanut Butter and Jelly cups recipe.  One of my favorite things about this magazine is that the editorial staff recognizes that knitters do more than knit.  Of course, I, who never enter the kitchen except to get a drink, will have to get Steve to make the recipe for me.

Oh, yeah, my pattern is on page 40—the very first one in the issue.

I promised a giveaway and here is how that works.  Go to the website and check out the magazine.  Respond on this blog or a separate email to tell me which pattern you would knit second—we’ll all pretend mine is the one you would knit first.  I can pretend pretty well.

I will randomly draw three names and send you a link to the pattern booklet for this issue which contains all of the patterns.

If you are planning to join the lace shawl knitalong at Charlotte Yarn, you may want to check out Winter Lilies by Susannah IC.  You could make it with only one ball of Zephyr.

  1. Wow! Jane, your sock pattern looks great and the Knitcircus issue really is quite impressive this time! Congrats on being published too!

    Wish I could join you on the lace shawl knitalong (hmm, possible to Skype the class?) — would definitely try the Winter Lilies pattern — seems a good name and choice for us in the colder climates!

    Looks like I really do need to start knitting socks — lots of great patterns and small enough to knit while on the T.

    Have fun with your new celebrity status!

  2. Know you know I am just drreaming when I say this…but I would pick The Sweet as Honey Baby Blanket second.

    Do you know if there is any special way we should subscribe to give you credit for the subscription?

  3. I’m digging that Fall Back coat, but don’t include me in the giveaway. You know I don’t knit anything that isn’t a scarf.

    *me still doing Kermit arms* Yeaaaaahhhh!

  4. This is a great blog and I would love a copy of the free pattern.

  5. Congratulations on the pattern and being published.

    My second choice is the accuminate shrug. (although I also like the sweet as honey baby blanket and have baby knitting on the brain.)

    You missed a great guild program last night on the history of lace — knitted, bobbin and otherwise. Now I think we need a nalbinding demo.

  6. What a gorgeous magazine! And after your intriguing sock pattern, I’d make de-lovely mitts next. They look fun and a few different friends have hinted about wanting some fingerless mitts. 🙂

  7. you’re a knitting star—congratulations

  8. Hey Jane, congratulations – not sure what I am supposed to do, but I will try all this. I’m not as computer savvy a you.

  9. Oh, I would probably do the kid’s sweater – it’s adorable.

  10. Congrats!! Second project would be the Winter Lilies shawl (or perhaps that As Sweet As Honey Blanket).

  11. Love the Socks!!! Jane you are the best! Of course the sock are first but second would be the Sweet as Honey Blanket.

  12. congratulations on the pattern. now the world knows you as the great knitter you are.
    I love the sweet as honey baby blanket as well as the winter lily shawl ..
    See you at the knit-in.

  13. Congrats on the publication! I love your socks – they’re fantastic! I also like the Jera socks.

  14. I love your sock pattern!

    After that I’d knit the Sweet as Honey Baby Blanket followed by the Beachcomber Vest.

    See you at the shawl knit-a-long!

  15. After your socks, I would love to do the September in CO sweater. It sounds like I need to go there to knit the sweater..not a bad idea!

  16. We’d love to have you at CONK next year.

  17. great looking sock pattern. I would love a chance to win the winter Lilies pattern

  18. I would make the Acuminate Cabled Lace Shrug second.

  19. I love Knitcircus! Congratulations on the beautiful sock pattern. I couldn’t honestly pick one pattern to knit first, but yours was in the queue. Thanks for the contest.

  20. My second would be Winter Lillies, then September in Colorado.
    Sewsable on Rav

  21. Desert Trails Hat. Gosh, I think I’d even use the same yarn which almost never happens! I’d love to say that the Fall Back sweater would be next because it is gorgeous but I’m not quite there yet.

  22. I like Fall Back, but having a few little ones in the house makes Zoom irresistible! LOVE the heel detail on the sock pattern, BTW!

  23. Congratulations on your pattern! It’s lovely.

    For my second knit, I’d continue the socks theme and knit Jera

  24. Love your socks Jane….but you already know that!! I’d probably do the ‘Sweet As A Baby’ blanket as a second….only to yours!

  25. I’d knit the Jera socks second – I knit mostly socks, although I’ve been thinking I’d like to branch out.

  26. I am ready to try lace, but I’m a little scared. But the second pattern I’d attempt to make out of this lovely e-zine is the Winter Lillies shawl.

    Thanks for the contest!!
