Interweave Knits, Spring 2018

This is the first spring issue that's made an impression on me, guys!  I know that doesn't sound like much, but I usually don't pay much attention to spring and summer issues of knitting magazines because they just include a lot of projects that aren't that useful to me (cotton knits, sleeveless shell, openwork tops, knitted skirts).   This one, though -- so many beautiful, wearable knits in both collections (Moto Knits and Evergreen Retreat).  There's some recognition that spring can be on the cool side, and that you may be wearing a sweater as your outer layer.

There are also a couple of hat patterns, also very cute, and an article about the difference in gauge when stranded colourwork and plain stockinette are combined.  It's pretty useful stuff to know, actually, because I have experienced that same problem and I now know to go up a needle size for the colourwork part, to avoid it.

Check out the whole issue here.
