I wanted to thank you mainly for including baby and children's patterns. For some reason, knitting magazines don't usually have them. There are so many knitters who are moms and grandmothers. I know they thank you, too. I just wish you would include even more baby patterns. I love to make little hats, booties, bibs, and baby sweaters. They go so quickly. I keep things on hand as shower gifts, etc. I'm always searching for new baby patterns to try.
By the way, I made the little " Just Ducky Blankie" in your July 2005 issue. It turned out beautifully!
Also, thanks so much for including the larger size patterns!
I am going to give subscriptions to my knitters for Christmas. I'm sure they will agree with me that Creative Knitting is THE best knitting magazine for REAL people!
Now if only I could find the time to knit all of the projects that I've flagged in this interesting issue!
I love the clear description of lace stitches that makes me think I can really make the lace stripe cardigan without getting frustrated.
I LOVE the figure eight idea! It really does make a difference! I had just finished the parts of a sweater for myself, and your "Neat Seams" article was a huge help when I put it together.
Your directions are written clearly. You have a variety of projects. You provide easy but lovely things that will certainly boost my confidence, along with designs that I will save for someday when I'm more experienced and looking for a bigger challenge. My only problem is going to be deciding which project to start first! As Humphrey Bogart said, this could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship! Good luck with your magazine - I've already ordered a subscription - and thank you!
