I Like your blog. I just found it.

Emma is adorable. I have a Bassett Hound named Brandy and she sits just like Emma on the couch. She sits up right with her paw on the arm.

Have a great Thanksgiving Weekend.


so i rarely capitalize ... i must be trying to be hip ;) i got that mag by the way and liked a lot of stuff. that landscapes sweater has my 16 year old niece's name all over it. i'll have to see if she likes it.


You're amazing! Just going to the store wears me out. And look at all you did and are planning. We have the knit 1 book at work but I haven't looked at it. The cover is a big turn off or downer as we used to say back in the day. Do we really have better taste or are we just cranky because we're not kids anymore? I agree that crochet makes better roses and flowers than knitting. And there's a lot less futzing.


I have the magazine, and although there's not much in it for me, the younger ladies at work really liked the things in it, so the target audience likes it.

I agree the crocheted roses are easier. Of course that's if you know how to crochet. I made one for a sweater, a bag, and I'm doing another one for a poncho,


I just LOVE that neck has the look of a tutleneck with the functionality of a scarf. I think I could easily convert that and crochet one. Does the magazine say what type of yarn that is?


Hi Tami! Terrific - a fellow New Mexican. :) Where are you, if you don't mind my asking. Ha - it's good to hear Emma isn't the only one that uses the armrest like a human. We thought she was really strange. :::grin::: Happy Thanksgiving!

Maryse - you don't have to "try" to be hip, you already are. ;) If you make that sweater you'd better blog about it - I'd be interested to see if it's really as easy as they say!

Larry - Ever heard of whistling in the wind? I talk a good game about projects but heaven knows if everything will get done. I like to think we DO have better taste...I'd hate to think we're getting conservative or something. ha!

Yes - a LOT less futzing with crocheted roses. The instructions for knit ones in the magazine are clear but sheesh - you could knit an entire sweater in the time it takes you to complete them.

I agree, Vera - only 2 or 3 things I would make for myself, but I do think I could use it for gift ideas for the younger set.

Ro - It's Kool Wool - 2 skeins - hence, inexpensive. I was thinking crocheted ribbing - crocheting in the back loop every row - would be great for this. I'll be watching to see what you come up with!


Hmm...if crocheted roses are that much easier than knit ones,perhaps I should learn to crochet.
$70 certainly seems a bit steep for a sweater in Lion Brand... and I
ve used landscapes before - it was nifty for felting, and it looks pretty knitted up and unfelted, but I don't think it would wear well that way at all!

I looked at that mag at B&N too....but it just wasn't me...and I also felt about 150 years old when I looked at it...probably didn't help any desire to purchase it!

Have a fab Thanksgiving Bron....


I love your magazine reviews :) I have yet to see this one in my area, but I'm watching for it. I like the neck gaiter too, but it does generally look as though the fashions would be more suitable to a far younger reader than I.

Hope you and yours have a wonderful holiday, Bron :)


Yes, SP3 - it's definitely helpful to know how to crochet. Even if you only use your knowledge for embellishments & such, it's worth it, in my opinion.

Dang, Lisa & Robbyn. We're not 100 years old, you know! You're making me feel older just reading your comments. ;) Seriously, all the Fun Fur & bright colors are definitely for the young (or young at heart) but there were a few little gems here & there. Just wait until you see what I crochet in the next couple of days. Hehehehe


Oh yeah - Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate!! May this be the start of a joyous holiday season.

I'm glad you like knit1 as much as I do, even if I am a crocheter. anyway, i'm desperately searching that camoflage knitting supplies bag featured on one of the front pages of the magazine. Do you have any idea where I can find one? I checked the company's web site, but the homepage was blank. I'd call but I'm at work and don't have the magazine with me.
