the simple life

I'm loving the fall 2010 issue of Knit Simple. Simple is good for me. I don't grow tired of making scarves and hats and mittens. I have a three-year-old and I don't typically choose to knit the most complicated or technical patterns that I can find. I really like plain, classic sweaters and scarves and this publication nails it. Every project is totally color heaven (and they even made a plain garter stitch sweater look cool.) I have to make the garter stitch + seed stitch button yoke cardi on page 37, love the scarf/mitten sets and that cool hometeam blanket towards the end.

So guess what? Since I enjoyed this issue so much, I'm giving a copy Knit Simple Fall 2010 away. To enter, just leave a comment here and let me know what project you're most looking forward to knitting this season. (Because fall is officially here ... I saw pumpkin spice lattes at Starbucks this week.) I'll pick a winner on Friday. :)

* Also! Check out my rad friends and sponsors in the sidebar to the right. It's totally not too late to throw your ad up there this month ... if you're interested, email me at jgeigley [at] gmail [dot] com.

  8. I'm looking forward to making my first sweater! I've been a rectangular knitter in the past - never daring to try an increase or decrease - but this autumn I'm taking the plunge and trying it! I'm feeling a slouchy charcoal sweater, probably. I've never seen this magazine but it sounds perfect for a beginner like me.

  14. Knit Simple is a great knitting magazine. You're right, simple does not equal boring. I am looking forward to knitting my first cardigan this fall. I think it will be Girl Friday from Knitty. Then maybe the Carrot Cardigan from Knit Scene. =]

  18. This is so fun! I'm a crocheter, but would like to enter into the knitting world, so this would be perfect! Plus, my husband and I moved from Texas to Massachusetts, so I'm sure I'd get started on the scarves and hats! :)
