I try to check out Knitty.com every time a new quarterly issue is posted. I think the folks there do an excellent job of putting out a great knitting resource full of wonderful free articles, information, and patterns. But I must admit that most of the time I just give it a quick glance.
Lately however, searching by way of Ravelry, I've happened upon some marvelous Knitty patterns and have had the chance to revisit some old favorites. Now my current and upcoming knitting queue is loaded with patterns from Knitty. Here are some that I've knitted recently or have waiting in my queue:
My version of the Blossoms by the Brook shawl by Ilga Leja. I've already posted about this project. I really love it and I am looking forward to wearing it A LOT when the weather is cooler again.
|Vale by Norah Gaughan|
One of my current knitting projects, Vale by Norah Gaughan. I love the look of this pattern, and can't believe it's available for FREE on Knitty.com. I've completed the back section and I am almost done with one side of this cardigan. Will post an update when I have the side complete.
|Fracetured Light Mitts by Kirsten Kapur|
Fractured Light Mitts by Kirsten Kapur (also includes a pattern for a matching hat): I have this pattern in my queue. I was going to knit these mitts with some stash yarn, but I like the pattern so much that I think I will buy something special to knit them with, then find the perfect buttons to go on them! You know how much I love vintage buttons :)
|Hidden Gusset Mitts by Mone Dräger|
The Hidden Gusset Mitts by Mone Dräger: My friends have made these mitts, and the pattern is just beautiful. I rarely knit with light fingering weight yarn, but I might just to make these sweet mitts.
|Lace Ribbon Scarf by Veronik Avery|
And, of course, the Lace Ribbon Scarf by Veronik Avery. I've posted about this beauty quite recently. I still love this pattern.
