It is here...

I have been waiting with baited breath for this special issue of Designer Knitting (Vogue Knitting in the US) for crochet. Once I had seen the teasers I checked WHSmith daily to make sure I am not missing the issue.

Yesterday the time hath cometh and I think I may have squealed with excitement while pushing another lady out of the way to the shelf (you can never be too sure and as I only spotted one issue I had to revert to drastic measures. )

It is mine aaaaaaaaaaaaall mine

Oh, there are so many things in this issue I want to recreate - actually pretty much all of it like with its sister magazine Designer Knitting Spring/Summer.

This is actually a full length coat and I think I will most probably die if I don't possess this, but it will take a long time to finish that baby (and a lot of yarn)

Then there is this gorgeous boho-chic cardigan - I SO SO want to do this but it uses Tunisian crochet and broomstick lace, both techniques I am a stranger to.

And what about this stunning leaf shawl?

And finally there is this cool top...nom nom

See, what I mean? And those are just a fraction of the things I would like to do. Check out all the contents here:  The Mag
