Knitting Porn

Nothing exciting has happened in the past couple of days, so in lieu of something interesting you get this post. My mother in law bought me a subscription to Interweave Knitting magazine for Christmas, and my first issue arrived yesterday. I loved looking at all the pictures and dreaming of all the things I might knit. I still need to read the articles though. Jeramy called it my knitting porn.

My favorite pattern was the Henley Perfected. It has such a nice mixture of casual and girlishness.

Ha! Knitting porn- I love it!

It's a cute sweater- I admire your ambition & skill. Okay- I am sooo jealous of your skill- I don't know if I could ever get the hang of knitting.

I got my first issue yesterday too! My 2 favorite patterns are the Henley and the socks. I love Chrissy's sock patterns, they're so much fun to knit!

OOOhhh. Knitting patterns!

Based on your pictures, that would be so pretty on you in a claret red.

I love that sweater...seriously, can you knit things like that? I know that is a stupid question, but hey I'm pretty much a knitting virgin ;-)Maybe this is something I should look into....

btw, I wonder what weird google hits (if you allow it) you will get with knitting porn?

Katie, well I can't knit like that yet so I probably won't start on that pattern too soon. But I'd like to knit my first sweater someday soon. In the meantime, I might do the socks Shelby mentioned, because I really liked those too.

LOL... Knitting porn.

Is that like the Food Network being food porn? At least at our house it is.

Pretty! I don't know if I can ever get the hang of more than scarves and the occasional hat or wrap.

Beautiful sweater! I have no knowledge of anything related to knitting, so even a scarf can really impress me!!
