Ok, I’ve been trolling the interwebs for a little while now, on a quest for a couple of back issues of Interweave Knits. One of the ones high on my list has been Winter 2003, in which there are good articles about gloves and thumb gussets, as well as some comfy unisex slipper sock things.
I actually lost this one the other day, but the seller wrote to me and said she had more than one copy, so I jumped on it. The magazine is great, the patterns and articles are just what I wanted. But it STINKS. In a big way. In the I’ve sprayed it with skanky car air freshener to hide the cigarette smoke kind of way. But this is a good issue, and I can’t stop looking. And my eyes are watering and I’m sniffly. Oh well, the price I pay for my knitting addiction. Guess I’d better take a hit on the inhaler before bed.
Which is where I’m headed now. I hear that Kelley Petkun interviewed Charlene Schurch for her podcast tonight. Given my suddenly renewed interest in socks, I can’t wait to listen as I head off to sleep.
Goodnight for now!
