I'm not sure if the mag is still on newsstands or not--the Spring issue is on pre-order, but the Fall may be sold out at stores.

Thanks for the corrections, Lisa!

Andee, the yarn is worsted (it does look chunky, I guess because of the cables)

Stine, cables are easy peasy!! Use Amy's video--heck, just watch it and you'll see how hard they're NOT!

I'm actuallly not scared of cables now that I read a description of how they're done. I just haven't done them yet. I'm planning the Irish Hiking Scarf as my next scarf, so hopefully that'll be soon.

Oooh, I that scarf! I've yet to knit it, but I think it's gorgeous! And it's the perfect practice for the cardi!

Booo. I wanted something that would knit up quickly. I am getting faster, but it still takes so LONG to make a sweater!

yikes, 48 is just big enough (I love how it put a 8) in there) ... I'd look like Lana Turner
Damn, I like the PLYMOUTH tweed... I think it's softer than the Donegal. And I like the colors better. But I already have mmmmmm. I was going to knit Glampyre Simple Bodice with it..... hmmm......

Nice hoodie! It's tempting me, but I need to finish one of my current sweater projects first...maybe after one of those.
