OMG! New Magknits!
Tuesday, May 01, 2007
Ada June - Cute. I hope magknits is still running if/when my friends have babies, so I can make this hat for them. (Print it out now? Feh!)

Brigid - I wish there were more views. But it looks like a good way to cut your teeth on some lace, if you don't want to do a boring old rectangle.

Diamond Girl - Normally I'm not a fan of things that bisect my chest. But I inexplicably love this. I'm definitely going to de-puff the sleeves, and probably use ribbon instead of icord. Maybe have the quilting come down a touch more?

Friday - You know, the purl side is really pretty! I see myself with one of these (made longer) this winter. I love the little knubs!

Rivendell - I must have this hat! Did you see the picture of the top? What a perfect crown! Although, I might throw in a rib in those big sections of reverse stockinette, just to give it a bit more grip. Maybe.

Reduce Reuse Recycle - I've always wondered what the sag factor on a plastic-plastic bag would be. But cute still. [One time, I saw someone who was looking for places to buy colorful plastic bags, so she could cut them up and turn them into a 'recycled' plastic bag. And did not see how this was an afront to the idea of the knit plastic bag as a way to reuse the bags.]

Zoe - Huh, that looks a lot smaller than the dimensions given. I'm not a purse user, and the I think the ruffle needs twice as many ruffles (making it look fuller. And to point down a little more.

Overall, I think this is one of the better issues they've had in a while!

    thanks! I always forget about Magknits! I really like Diamond Girl.

    Diamond girl is my favorite but I would probably knit the pattern stitch for the complete bust portion.

    Thanks for the reviews... I may have to make the reduce, reuse for a friend's birthday...
