Now I Know I Made A Good Call

You know how I questioned whether or not to renew my subscription to Interweave Knits. Your input and my gut told me not to renew and I can always purchase the great single issue here and there. Well, I think I made the right call after seeing the IK Spring 2010 online.

Quite frankly, there is not a lot in the issue I would consider making.

This tee might be worth a try - it would look good with and without a shirt underneath. But it is the only thing I'd be interested in making from the entire issue.

This jacket had potential but it is too chunky and unless you are rail thin it would look awful.

I can't think of a child I would dare to dress in this outfit - totally frumpy.

Why would you knit something that is so lacy that you must have a t-shirt every time you wear it? That's a lot of lace!
I don't usually have negative posts on my blog and I don't usually rant. There are some amazing designers out there and I don't think this issue does justice to the talent that exists.
I'm glad I let my subscription lapse!
Thursday afternoon update: little did I realize I had one more issue in my subscription. This issue showed up in today's mail. Unfortunately, it is as disappointing as I expected...

I thought the same thing about letting my subscription lapse when I saw the preview photos.

More and more I hear people say that IK is just not as good as it used to be.
