Yesterday at night I returned from Germany. As always, I am pleased with a great diversity of knitting magazines there. I cannot help admiring: common kiosks at bus or railway stations carry Verena, Sabrina etc as well as stitch patterns collections and German-language magazines less known here (for instance, something that is pulbished in Switzerland). I had little time. I wanted to take a photo of the stand with craft magazines but was not allowed, therefore, I show the only picture I managed to take:
I bought this collection of stitch patterns. There are several knits in the brochure (sometimes there are stitch patterns only). I like the soft cables, the sweater on the cover is from mohair, so it is worth trying, the yarn does not have to have a tight twist.
More cables that are quite simple but not very common.
This magazine is beign published in Switzerland, I saw it for the first time. What is noteworthy that in the end there is a table for yarn substitution. The options are either Swiss Chulana or German Lang or Lana Grossa.
I liked this jacket a lot, it is simple double moss stitch, the yarn is relatively bulky but soft.
Teekonna rätik on valmis ja kuivab. Jällegi väga lihtne. Korralikud pildid kunagi nädalavahetusel (tuletan meelde, et mul on veel üks sviiter pildistamata, nii et korraga tuleb 2 kudumit).
My travel shawl is finished and drying. Again, it is fairly simple. I hope to have proper pictures taken during the weekend (just to remind, I have a sweater to be photographed yet, so there will be two knits).
I am envious of all knitting magazines that are sold over there. We do have our regular publications sold here (Vogue and Interweave) but I have never seen any of the ones you show in your post.
Lovely shawl Anna :))
What fun to have such choice in knitting magazines! Thanks for sharing. :))
Diana, thank you! In Estonia we have quite a choice: Vogue, Rowan, Verena, Sabrina, Stricktrends and also Finnish and Russian magazines.
Robin, yes, it is fun to look into knitting magazines!
