Holiday Interweave Knits
I got an email today from IK advertising the upcoming Holiday Interweave Knits. Oh my, it's got some yummies for sure! I see 2 of my fave projects from "Scarf Style" but, the one that I'm sure my youngest daughter is going to want is the floral felted bag!
Issue should be on newstands Oct 11

Interweave doesn't usually have a lot in it that i would knit, even if i like them. This one looks full up of stuff i would do. The picture of the twighlight lace wrap though is bad. I thought that was some big weird white hat she was wearing at first until my eye refocused on the picture and then name.

Re: Holiday Interweave Knits
Rebecca,
Does interweave use charts or written out instructions for their patterns? There were so many things on the website that I would love to try! I have not used charts before and to be honest they intimidate me lol
Thank you!

Anne, they use both written instructions and charts. For example, if there is a lace or color pattern it will be charted and in the written instructions it may say something like: work center 27 sts according to row 1 of lace chart.
Then they also have patterns that don't have the chart and the pattern is completely written out. I guess it depends on the designer.
I was completely intimidated by charts, too. Until I had to knit the Backyard Leaves scarf last year. I took the book to Kinkos, enlarged the pattern and highlighted all of the knit rows and popped the chart on my magnetic board and kept the magnetic strip above each row as I was knitting...now I love charts!

Rebecca,
Thanks for the reply. It is just a block with me I think. I need to try it when I have some "alone" time so I can concentrate. lol

This interweave looks great!

Anne - Charts really are easier than they look! Like you, I avoided them for the longest time, but then I finally folded when I saw the pomatomus socks and decided I'd give it a try, and it was actually super easy! and I'm really liking charts now (once you've used them a few times, and it doesn't just look like a jumble of symbols anymore, it's easier to tell where you've been and what's about to happen) it really helped me understand knitting, instead of just doing what the instructions say. Grab some small project and try the first few rows of a chart! You'll see how easy they are!
