Spring issue of Love of Knitting is out!

The Spring issue of Fons & Porter's Love of Knitting is out, and I finally got to see the finished product today. Yes, I did do a design for this issue (see below), but more importantly...

Yes, I love this! Tedious though it sometimes is, I love technical editing. I feel fortunate to get so many opportunities to do so (hoping to work on another book sometime soon!)

Speaking of loving to do things, the designing is fun too, of course! Here's the sweater (in SWTC Therapi, with all the goodness of jade--still don't get how they do that!):



Super simple, knit in the round, soft, wonderful yarn.

Now back to work!

Congrats again!

I have to run out and pick it up today.

The sweater is really cute. I'm thinking I really need to knit this one.

I found this magazine for the first time yesterday and was delighted to see your design in it!!! I'm thinking I'd like the Therapi Sweater with the beautiful collar ribbed and the body stst. Less clingy over my notsvelte body..... :) Congratulations! Your designs are always so appealing! samm

Nice work as usual. I was flipping through my fug-a-day calender and saw a familiar face...

Love that shawl ;-) (so not fug!)

I also bought the spring issue of the Fons and Porter Knitting book. I wanted to make the baby sweater and matching blanket. Needless to say how dismayed I was when I got home to find that the blanket pattern was not included. I wrote to them through their website and no one bothered to reply. I won't be buying another one.

The instructions for the matching blanket are here:

Amy, Thank you so much for the link. I wanted this for a baby shower in July and was so disappointed. Now I will have time to make it! Again, thanks.
