Fall Releases

July 28th, 2008 by May

Each season brings out the previews for the new knitting magazines, all of which I very much look forward to. But the Autumn/Fall season is particularly interesting since it heralds in a new knitting season for the year.

In 3 days, we’ll also have a new online magazine/pattern store – Twist Collective. The previews have been very interesting so it’s looking good. Actual patterns and prices will help determine if I become a customer.

The new knitscene and Interweave Knits previews are up. I have to say, neither got me very excited. I’ll be getting interweave Knits in the mail, so I’ll better judge from there. Knitscene often underwhelms and then later, when I see projects from others, I get a better impression of them.

I was very excited about the preview of Vogue Knitting, and got the magazine yesterday. It has special concentration on Canada and Canadian products, knitters, stores and patterns. So that was an added bonus. But honestly, I got it for these mittens (Ravelry).

I was the most excited about the fall releases were the new patterns from Chicknits. I’m most keen on Cassidy (Ravelry) and Basic Chic Hoodie (Ravelry). Copies of them are on the way to me now, so that I may possibly finish one of them by the time winter gets here.

The new releases for Fall from Berroco are just lovely. I am particularly fond of the designs from Norah Gaughan, vol. 3. It’s my favorite yet of her collections. Many styles of pieces I’d actually be interested in making and wearing like Eastlake, Strawberry Hill, Assemblage, Loppem and Calvert. Whew, what a lot!

Of course, at some point, the new Knitty comes out. So, a lot to keep knitters busy for another knitting season coming up. And even more releases coming up and out all right around the corner.

(Apologies for the lack of photos. But I tried to make up for it with loads of links?!)
