Jane Austen Knits 2012

The new issue of Jane Austen Knits just arrived and it's looking very pretty! If you like ladylike garments you'll eat-up this special issue magazine, but there are also plenty of projects that aren't overwrought. 

I really like the Hesian Boot Socks

Orange has never looked so delicious in Frederica

A Cotton Camisole in lace is timeless

Margaret Dashwood has always been among my favourite characters, but I might be influenced by her fabulous tree houses. 

Pemberley Reticule (I think it's actually a market bag)

Southerton might just make spiderman jealous.

Vogue Knitting Special Crochet Issue

The very good people at Vogue Knitting Magazine have published a special issue for Crochet Patterns - and it's great!  Sometimes crochet patterns lean towards the kitschy, but this magazine contains a lot of patterns you'll want to make AND wear. The instructions are written out, and accompanied by diagrams. There are also very useful articles about seaming crocheted garments and decoding crochet symbols and reading crochet diagrams.  The price is also very reasonable at only $7.99. 
  • See it on Ravelry
  • See close-ups and alternate views of the patterns HERE
  • Buy it Online in our Etsy Store
