Is it just me, or are European men hotter than American men?
The picture above is from my latest issue of Anna – Burda Magazine from Germany. After someone on the Niebling list (not sure if it was Yahoo Group or Ravelry) mentioned that they sometimes republish Niebling designs in current magazines, I thought I’d like to subscribe. Here’s the latest cover.
Now, I don’t speak German at all, and even if I they do publish a Niebling design or two, I’ll have to use all the on-line translation resources I have at my disposal to be able to use it.
But for the sweater (and model) above, the subscription was worth it.
I finished two more blocks on the niece afghan.
I’m enjoying the process of going through stitch dictionaries to pick out various pattern stitches that I think will translate well to Manos del Uruguay yarn. If you’ve ever made one of Judith Shangold afghan’s or throws (I’ve made two of her design called Vineyard Throw), then you’ll know how beautiful Manos afghans and throws turn out.
Only 17 more squares to go.
Actually, since I’m traveling this week and next, I decided to start a different project that’s a bit more portable and doesn’t require quite as much access to my knitting library. I’ll post pictures in my next blog entry.
