Interweave Knits

As I've said before, I live somewhere on the Ohio river about 1/2 way between "Deliverance" and "Feed the Children". We have no local fiber stores. I know no other local spinners. The only other local knitter I know uses an ISM and Ackrillic yarn from Wal-Mart.

Imagine my surprise and excitement today when, while shopping at our local Kroger, I came across a current issue of Interweave Knits!

My sweet Benny was hurried to the check out, and out to the van. I couldn't wait! This is my favorite issue of the year ~ FALL! The issue of promise. The heat will end. The sunshine filled evenings till 10:00 will fade and we will once again need to wrap ourselves in the sweaters, shawls, and scarves of the Fall issue!

For the most part, IK lived up to the promise. Benny struggled to keep his eyes on the road between bursts of, "Oooo look at this!" and "What do you think of that one?"

Then, we came upon page 90 and the coolest knitted chair I've seen. We decided I should knit it. It's actually a cover for an, "inexpensive contemporary chair from Ikea". So, here's the rub. Ikea doesn't show any such chair on their website. All of our hopes were dashed in a simple mouse click.

Suddenly, the Interweave Knits of Fall lost all of it's promise. We are once again relegated to the seemingly endless heat of summer.
