While I was browsing through the new patterns added to Ravelry I noticed a hat. It is a Fair Isle pattern done in different shades of blue with a touch of wine. I’m not sure why this particular hat caught my eye, but I really like it. I found out it was available in one of the new magazines out on the stand – Vogue’s Fall 2010 issue. I haven’t bought knitting magazines in years. I used to subscribe to a few, but I found that they were mostly filled with ads and patterns that I wasn’t interested in, so I ended up not renewing my subscriptions. I thought I would keep this hat and magazine in mind and the next time I was in Joann’s I’d take a look and see if the magazine was still available.
My next stop was to Joann’s for a big weekend sale. I am busy making Christmas Gifts and I needed more yarn. While I was walking up to the check out I noticed the magazine with the hat in it. Then I noticed another magazine that had only accessories in it – Creative Knitting Fall 2010. I ended up buying both magazines. I’m not sure if I got my money’s worth, they sure have gone up in price! But, I did enjoy reading them and I found a couple of hats in the accessory one that I am considering making.
