Ohhhh-look!


I went to the bookstore yesterday for my monthly ration of magazines.  Since I drive for an hour, I usually try to make it worth my while.  My wallet always gasps because I spend SO much money on magazines!!!!

Nowdays, I at least look to at magazine contents .... the Brit magazines in plastic make this difficult .... but I at least have to look to see if there's anything I could concievably want.  There was a lot of nice stuff in the latest group!  

In Knit.1, Angela Hahn's top caught my eye-I love it!  I am just about ready to put that stinking TAKES FOREVER brioche stitch shrug in time out for it.  It takes 19 stitches in 4", so I think Katrina might be good for.  I need to look closely at it.  I've got white, hot pink, soft pink, maybe some black ..... I might cast on the light pink for DD.  That way I can knit it and try it on before I lauch that black Katrina....  no!  I gotta finish the stinking shrug.  Sigh.....

I don't know when I cast on something new that I am going to enjoy it makes me want to go and finish the other even more so I can get back to the fun one guilt free--cast on go for it!!

I love that top as well. I want to try and figure out how she did it but then again I might just get the magazine!

Your haul looks very familiar to what's on the top of my book shelf! Except I haven't given in to the British magazine yet, somthing about not being able to see what I'm getting. Maybe one day they'll come up with a tempting enough knitting accessory in that plastic bag (these are like the equivalent of the toys that come with Happy Meals, except for knitters!) What's the magazine that is third from the bottom, title begins with "Y" against the blue background? It's killing me...Yarn something?

Katrina looks like a great choice for that Petal top!

Wow, what a haul! I, too, wish I could browse the British mags. I keep thinking that the store might make more sales if they would just have one "outside the plastic" copy on hand for flipping through.

The top is really cute. Have you decided on a yarn yet?

That's a lot of magazines in one trip. I'm trying to imagine your entire magazine collection, and wondering how you organize it and where do you put it all?
