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?
