Creative Knitting November 2011 is out!

Fall is a great time for knitters isn't it? That snap in the air, leaves rustling, and new magazines! I haven't seen it in person yet, but this issue of Creative Knitting looks great so far.

You can tell the colour palette of this issue was designed very carefully, all the projects complement each other so nicely. Creamy taupes, rich reds and browns, and a few cool deep blues to bring it all together. Lovely.

I got a chance to use Universal Yarn's Deluxe Worsted for my Arbutus Jacket, in "white ash", "brown sugar" and "bronze brown." I'm a sucker for good colour names. Deluxe Worsted was really nice to work with, very smooth. And excellent value, 220 yards for $7.

Arbutus is a nice easy knit, a cropped A-line jacket, with seed stitch bands and slip-stitch colour work, wide cuffs, asymmetrical front closure, generous hood. I'd love to see how a different colour palette changes the jacket.

Lovely designs in this issue, available online or on newsstands for about $7.
