Vogue Knitting Fall 2010 Reviews Round One

I was excited to hear this morning that Vogue Knitting had released the preview of their fall issue. That is, I was excited until I actually looked at the patterns. For me, there's something about Vogue Knitting patterns that are a little "too much" to me. Too many ruffles, too many cables, too many patterns that look like road kill. I know I'm being harsh. To be fair the patterns that call road kill to mind come from a Project Runway designer and not from the many talented knitwear designers that grace the pages.

Not every issue is like this, but every season I get excited hoping that Vogue Knitting might come out with a home run of an issue -an issue that is wearable, and knittable. Heck, I'd be happy if 2-3 knitting patterns were wearable. I don't blame the designers. Obviously someone's doing something right because Vogue Knitting recently expanded to an extra issue per year and I can't think of another publication in the whole world who has expanded production.

My opinion aside, here's what knitters are saying about Vogue Knitting Fall 2010:

Knitting.Craftgossip says:

A few, um, well, lets just say I can't imagine wearing that much yarn.

Life Randomness Yarn has a much more favorable perspective of the latest issue:

Vogue Knitting's London Calling spread has some awesome knits ...

The Knitting Curmudgeon doesn't actually have a review, but her tagline "shut up I'm counting" made me add her to my blog feed.

Wooly Wits shares What to Wear and she might actually be right. There's a few patterns that she's picked that I might actually want to knit....  Ok, half of them are from ads, but still.

Stay tuned for more reviews :)

Miracles have happened and husbeast received and accepted a job offer at his dream company last week. He starts work soon. We are breathing sighs of relief and expecting great things ahead.

I'm knitting. I've been caring for my two sons, living at my MIL's house, volunteering at our local co-op preschool and gardening. Trying to find time to write and to redefine this blog to embrace my current reality.
