The end of an era?
I feel as if this edition is just retreading designs that have already been done. The Stanwyk pullover reminds me of a lot of Maude (ravelry link). The Elemental boatneck, reminds me a lot of Green Gable. The wrap cardigan has nothing new to offer either. Even the pleat skirt I've seen elsewhere.
I also feel like I missing some of the fun minutia that was at the beginning of the magazine. There wasn't any fun little history story. The new tools was hidden and looked like an ad. The lace article didn't offer anything new either. The knitted art article was cool, but that was it. I still hate that they've done the Vogue thing and stuck all the pictures in the beginning and then the patterns later in the magazine. You loose the can't wait to turn the page feel. Overall, I was generally just blah.
I want to be inspired!!
