I bought a copy of the winter issue of VK. I LIKE IT~!! I like the patterns and I like the articles.When I first picked it up, I thought it has too many ads in it. But after I looked it over closely I understand why~ there are 29 patterns in there~! I am likin this~ They use all gauge of yarn which i love. I like bulky wt yarn but there is enought variation so that if I want try something new I can~!!
