Knit N Style October preview
I am totally feeling this issue. I usually don't like this mag, but I love these designs:

http://www.knitnstyle.com/issues/oct..._gallery.shtml

I know already I'm going to make the Cables Milano for my father. When I first looked at it, I wasn't sure, it took me a while to decide whether I liked it or not. But my father prefers not plain stuff (he loved/loves? the Cosby sweaters), and wanted a sweater, and I think with the right colors, maybe less turtleneck, it will be just enough funk without being too much.

I also like the Seacalin coat and the striped turtleneck and the Cable Tunic. The striped turtleneck looks like something I could buy in Kohl's but still, it looks like something I would buy. I've seen the VK and IK previews, but this is definitely my favorite.

Me either
The only one I like is the baby stripe sweater. That magazine just doesn't do it for me. Glad you are happy with it tho.

Ok so this isn't a mag I have looked at before but I love some of the sweaters. Is this the fall or winter issue. A yarn store that is a ways from me has the fall 2007 is this the right one? I don't really want to drive that far if it isn't.
Thanks

I liked the pictures so well I drove 20 miles to go get it. That is completely unheard of for me! But my lys up the street didn't have it. Besides in all honesty I had been looking for an excuse to go there.
Thanks for the heads up about this mag.

I like the Dazzling Diamonds, but I don't plan to buy the magazine or make anything from it.

I like the Cables Milano (though not in those colors), the Striped Turtle Neck, Falling Flowers, Cable Tunic, and Seashell Shawl.

Also, the Shawl Collar Pullover looks like a nice guy knit (though maybe made a little less bulky), and the Unisex Fair Isle has a good shape for a guy, but I don't see many guys being comfortable in Fair Isle.

Knit 'n Style Cables Milano sweater
Has anyone actually knit this sweater? I am having trouble with the cables. If I knit the colors separately the cable has a big hole between the twists. If I cross the colors and join the two halves of the cable it looks a bit flat.

Help!
