knitsimple (Holiday 08) issue is pretty in pink with really fast, fun patterns. You will want to check out knits+that section on pages 6 and 8 for the latest gizmos for the happy knitter and hooker. There is something for everyone in this issue, including adorable sweaters, hats and bags for the kids! Great fun in this issue.
Belle Armoire Art to Wear (Sept/Oct 08) always leaves me breathless. Crocheters will be delighted and doin' the happy dance over this issue which includes an incredible interview with Susan Obrant starting on page 11 and an array of inspiring quotes regarding her process, crochet and gorgeous designs that are colorful, edgy, and fabulous!
It's back to nature in an article by Jess Nichole - Nature's Enchanted Whimsy, an Eco Chic Halter Dress design and so much more. There are also other crafts included in the issue, although I definitely consider the whole issue art.
I hope you will reach for these issues on the stand or order them online and be taken to another world of knitting, crochet, art, crafts - basically nirvana for your creative side.
