New Vogue Knitting Has Arrived!

I stopped in to the shop today to drop off all the new Manos colors (more on that tomorrow!) and the new issue of Vogue was waiting for me.

And this is a truly great issue. Trisha Malcolm has really got a bead on what is going on in the knitting world, and it shows. The cover mittens are knit with Jamieson's Shetland Spindrift, one of my all time favorite yarns, in a complex cable pattern. No dumbing down here!
Then these Manos Mittens, in a cheery color perfect for the winter blahs:

These are knit in a lattice cable and bobble pattern using two skeins of Wool Clasica in the color Straw (Z). In addition to these two pairs of mittens, there's a whole mitten spread! There are some cute ones done in Louet Gems fingering, which we have here at the shop, in a fair isle pattern with little birds, really adorable. There's also an article celebrating 50 years of Schoolhouse Press and a great article about Ravelry.com and one all about our northern knitting neighbors, those fabulous Canadians! I know what my bedtime reading is going to be!
