Anyone besides me LOVE the Holiday edition of Interweave Knits? Who knows, it could be the talk of the knitting blogworld or conversely, the bane of its existence. Perhaps even just a tiny speck of plankton in a sea of competing knitting books and magazines. I have no idea. My life is in the midst of a complete transformation. 6 months ago, I was Stay-at-Home-Mom-Lady with a part time job and time to knit and chat, tote the kids around, help with homework, avoid housework and stay busy, even get stressed out because I would take on too many commitments. Now I am Single-Mom-Lady with no time to spare, precious few hours to spend with the kids, make dinner, unwind and do a few chores before falling in to bed, exhausted. So I don't get to see what is happening much in the blog world these days.
In any case, I love this magazine. I am planning to make a gazillion little felted pears as Christmas gifts. And about the same number of little sachet hearts from my leftover sock yarn. There is not one single pattern in there that I hate. And that's saying a lot. Usually there is at least three or four stinkers. At least. In this issue, the worst I can find is an "eh." That is really saying a lot.
I suppose I should be shifting into full holiday knitting and shopping gear. It's going to be an interesting Christmas.
