Magazine Review: Interweave Knits Spring 2010

The Spring 2010 issue of Interweave Knits came in the mail last week, so I have decided to review it. Because, you know, I like to review things on the blog. I have to be honest here, I don't get this magazine for the articles. I very rarely read them. All I really care about is that little section in the front they have sometimes with new books or fun new knitting things and the patterns. I just want to stare at the pictures all day and then dream about knitting these things. Is that so wrong?

Anyway, I just really wanted to share my opinions on the stuff in the magazine and tell you what I would like to knit in it. There were actually lots of things I want to knit in this issue; I am a total sucker for the lacey stuff. And this issue had a good amount of it. There is a lace shawl/stole, a bunch of sweaters, and even a cute market bag.

Here are some of my absolute favs. First up, it's the Rose Window Beret:

This beret might be the thing I am most excited about in this issue. Why? Well, there was a girl on American Idol who was always wearing these cute little berets during Hollywood week. I literally had been watching AI thinking that I should design a beret. Now there is no need, because here one is!

I also am totally in love with the sock pattern that was in this issue:

I love this sock! This pattern is the Wasabi Peas Socks. I have a feeling that sock may be on the needles soon for me.
And finally, my last fav of the issue is the Double V Cardigan:

I love those little lacey cardigans. I think people in photos wearing them always look so sophisticated. So, maybe I will knit one so I can get that sophisticated look too!
Anyway, I don't always love issues of this magazine, but I have to say, I thought this one was pretty good. So, run on out to your LYS and pick one up today!
So, what were your faves in this issue?

Note: All photos in this post came from the Interweave website. Also, I was not compensated for this review, I pay for my own supscription to this magazine. To read my disclosure policy, you can view it here.


  1. I love the beret too! I usually don't like most of the patterns in Inerweave and I've neeeever bought it. But every now and then there is that one that makes me want to walk to the book store and grab it...

    I like the cardigan too, but I'm not crazy about the sleeves for some reason. Another reason to walk to B&N.

  2. Thanks for the review, Jen! My IK has been sitting on the buffet for a little while. Now I know it's worth opening.
