Marta is looking really pretty. Let's see, about IK Summer: I really like the Cambridge Jacket for my husband. I was considering this as a b'day gift in October. The Bonita Shirt kinda caught my eye; really like the Brioche Bodice; I'd like to get a better look at Fairy Net Blouse and Evening Star Top.


Marta is looking beautiful! You do gorgeous work Bron! Such a pretty color too! Love it!

I really like that IK summer issue too. Lots of really nice tops. Does anyone know when it's coming out? Safeway used to carry IK and not sure if they still do... Seems like there are a lot of all other kinds of magazines but very little in the way of needlework. Last time I checked I couldn't find any!

Hi! You sure do some beautiful projects. I found your site when searching for a pattern for a Moda Dea Ticker Tape tank top. I swear I had one bookmarked and now it is no longer coming up. I think the yarn is discontinued so I am panicked that I won't be able to find one. Do you know where to find a knit pattern? You could probably knit one in your sleep but I need a pattern ;-)
Thanks so much for your help :-)


Even sick you knit fast! I love the color and the pattern.
Get well soon.

I love the new issue of IK... there were so many projects I liked that I finally gave in and ordered a subscription.

I especially liked the Looking Glass Top, Pink Mimosa, the Pea Pod baby set, Evening Star top, and Brioche Bodice... so, much the same as your list.

In all honesty, this one is the best knitting mag (from any company) that I've seen in a long, LONG time.


Margaret - the issue is scheduled to come out mid-May, but as to when it'll actually show up, who knows!

Erica - Yep, I'd like a closer look at the Fairy-Net Blouse too!

Sheri - You'll know when I'm on death's door - I won't have the energy to knit or crochet! hehe Thanks - I seem to be on the mend. :)

Holy cow, Leisel - A magazine issue you like - stop the presses! (teehee) Seriously - I'm like you - I'm amazed that something this good appeared in the midst of all the drek. Now, let's hope a close-up look is just as good as their preview!


Gosh, there's so many nice things in the new IK. I guess Looking Glass realy catches my eye.

Marta is so cute,and it just occured to me that I'm using the same color of CE for my Bob.


"Now, let's hope a close-up look is just as good as their preview!"

True... I hope I don't end up disappointed like on the One Button Cardigan from last year's summer issue:


Leisel- I hear ya! I've never been so disappointed with a sweater. Truly awful and you couldn't tell a thing from the preview!

Marta is looking good!

Oh, that poor, poor cat. The horror.
