Oh . . . my . . . goddess! You just don't know. If you haven't seen it, you just don't know. Now don't discount me because I'm on a carbohydrate rush at the moment (even if it is true). This issue is gorgeous. Yowza! Yikes! Holy smokes! Gee wilikers, people! I don't think you understand what I am trying to tell you. I got home and I was like: :?eyebrow: and then I was like :drool: and then i thought :noway: and my heart did a flip and it was like :inlove: . The room began to spin and I all of a sudden :thud: . And when I regained consciousness I rushed to the computer to tell you all about it. Do you hear me, people? Run to your nearest Borders (where I got mine) or LYS or wherever you can get a copy of this magazine and get it. Hello, is this mic on? Why are you all still here reading this? Why aren't you in your cars speeding to Borders right now?
Okay, now that I've burned off some of that excitement, for real, the issue is beautiful. I spent over an hour at Borders going over all their knitting and crocheting magazines (they have more than my LYS!) and books. I put Sensational Knitted Socks and Yarnplay on my mental to-get list. But will I ever feel like my $20 for a knitting book is as well spent as the $6 on the Vogue Knitting 2006 holiday issue? Perhaps never. Okay, okay, the Purple Reign section and the Big Color section were not to my tastes, but the other sections Grace Notes (lots of white lace), Town and Country (cables and fair isle), Foreign Affair (which has my favorites, the sweater with the one fair isle sleeve and a Modesitt embroidered shawl with lace border), even Gold Rush (lots of sparkly gold-toned designs) are just fabulous.
Whew! I have to go calm down.
