Magazine Knitting

I razzed Vogue Knitting's photo styling in my previous post.  Coincidentally, one of their designs has just come off my needles.  These are an Elli Steubenrauch design from  Winter 2009/10.  Check those thumbs! (You can click on any photo to make bigger.)  The ribbing effect at the cuffs is achieved by knitting with the main color and purling with the contrast color.  The palms have a  geometric mosaic design.  It's a good contrast to the trees and grass on the fronts and thumbs.


Soft as beagle ears is the worsted-weight from Kimmet Croft!  That yarn is pure joy to work with and there was enough yarn left over to knit ...

a hat!  The design is Quantoid Hat and you can find it in Knitscene, Fall 2010.

In fact, there's still more yarn left, certainly more than enough for a pair of wristers, maybe even cabled ones and you know how that gobbles up the yardage.  The green skein began with 250 yards and the blue with 230.  It's starting to feel a little loaves-and-fishes, Bartholomew Cubbins and the 500 Hats by Dr. Seuss, if you follow.  The latter, you remember, is the story where the boy finds that each time he removes his hat to the king, another hat is on his head, ad infinitum.
