Crochet, Winter 2011

Who says lace is just for summer? In this issue, we explore lace for winter with several big, bold winter lace designs and a handful of fine lace designs, to add a light touch of lace to your burly winter garb. And socks! We have three ways to make socks, including fabulous Pamir slip-stitch socks. Maire Treanor's series on Clones lace continues with two shamrock designs. Add some jackets and vests, as well as a blanket, and it all adds up to 22 projects to cheer you through winter.

Well these designs may be fashion forward, and a few would look very nice in a solid color, most are some of the most unattractive crocheted items I've seen in a long time.  The socks are on the verge of hideous.  Everyone has different taste, fortunately and certainly some of this will appeal to somebody.

I'll admit I would not wear the red twig or izafarmo socks in the shown colorways, but my first thought was how wonderful it was to have such intricate sock patterns in crochet!  Wonder how they'd look in blue, black, and light orange?

Finally!  A fashion forward issue that is reflective of the early years of Interweave Crochet. I was beginning to think this magazine was becoming a carbon copy of the other crochet magazines on the market. I look forward to my issue coming in the mail. I might even try a pair of those colorful socks!

These designs are inspiring and takes crochet to a level we're not seeing in other magazines.  Thanks for something different.

This issue has so many fun things-as does every issue!! Thanks so much for the varied & interesting patterns you always provide. The sock patterns are really cool-it's too bad so many folks have a hard time seeing past what is SUGGESTED in the pattern. The beauty of making your own things is that you can make them any color you like! I don't recall making many patterns using the colors suggested--you can even substitute another make of yarn the same weight if you cannot get the exact yarn specified. Let your imagination shine!! Have fun with the patterns!!  I know we all don't like the same things, but I don't think it's necessary to be mean about it.  Hope everyone has fun with whatever project you try!!  Peace, love & blessings!!

I wanted to say that it's nice to know that someone else also mentioned this as I had trouble finding the same info elsewhere. This was the first place that told me the answer.

The more technical term, costume, has become so linked in the public eye with the term fashion that the more general term costume has in popular use mostly been relegated to special senses like fancy dress or masquerade wear, while the term fashion means clothing generally, and the study of it. Thanks.
