Love the round dishcloth - may I ask where the pattern is?? And BTW, I personally love the kitsch!

Nothing jumped out at me in the new IK, but I was pleased not to see much fugliness :) Just not my persona style. I kind of liked the new layout in some ways, but I didn't like how the pattern was separate at the back and I agree about the ads versus the patterns. It wasn't outdated and clearly people liked it before.

I looked at "No Sheep for You" yesterday at an LYS and it's a maybe for me. Mostly because there were a few titles I wanted first (including Fitted Knits) before that, but it did have some cute patterns in a range of styles and tastes. I'm sure I'll look at it again.


Congrats on the weight loss!

I totally love the chickens also.


Whatever pics you post on your Blog are great! No complaints from me! Everything looks great.

I appreciate your magazine & pattern reviews since there is nowhere in this little town that sells knit or crochet magazines. When you mentioned that you look them over at B&N, the next time we went to Cheyenne (70 miles away) I stopped in there to look. I would've never thought about B&N having knit & crochet magazines. Thank you!

Have a great day everyone!


Those chicken potholders are adorable!

Congrats on the weight loss... I'm thinking of stepping on the scale this morning to see what nearly a week of dog walking has done. (Probably nothing, but I like to live in hope! ;) )


I'm surprised you don't like the Dollar and Half cardigan. I don't love the new layout, but I liked a lot of things out of this new IK. Congrats on the weight loss. I saw the No Sheep book and I liked it. You should browse it. You may like it and then again maybe not.


The new IK look is okay. I like it overall, and I thought that the patterns were ads too. Perhaps, they'll tweak it a bit.

I thought you'd like the Dollar and A Half cardi too.

You know I'm loving the entrelac socks since I'm a sockie.


Congrats on the weight loss!! I'm working my arse off (no, pun definitely not intended) in the gym and the numbers are only dropping very very slowly. So disheartening. I like the chook potholder too. Very cute. Something Pink is looking lovely. I am seriously tempted by that pattern!

Have to chime in with the others who loved the chicken potholders, they are the bomb! Made me laugh out loud ~ always a good thing. :)


Hey everyone!

You know - the reason I didn't really like Dollar and a Half is because I'm not a bit fan of asymmetry in clothing. I love it on my mantel, but not in a sweater. :)

I'm definitely going to hunt for "No Sheep" at the bookstores here. Obviously it's something I need to see before I buy!

Thanks for the weight loss congrats...if only it weren't going so slowly! Sigh.
