Interweave Knits Winter 08

Is anyone else really disappointed with the latest Interweave Knits Winter 08 preview? Actually, come to think of it , I've been rather disappointed at the last two issues (i think?) and haven't bought one since Spring's beautiful issue.

There are only two things I like in this issue , one of which I would actually knit and the other is a "maybe".

Elaine's Blouse: (a yes, but i will wait till it is available on Knitting Daily's Store I think)

And does anyone else think that this is practically a ripoff of the Phildar Leaf Sweater??

Rant over ;) I'm starting back on site again, but with a shorter 9 days on, 5 days off roster. I've ordered my yarn requirements for my next 4 projects but am still waiting for them to arrive. *patience*

IT IS a ripoff! And with no improvement at all - au contraire! Bad, bad, bad ...

I didn't find any must-knits either. I like the blouse but there is no way I'd have something button in the back--too impractical. As for the vines pullover, I like the Phildar one better. The shaping seems more fitted (maybe it's just the way it's modeled) and (I never thought I'd say this but) I like the reverse stockinette better.

That double breasted jacket would be adorable on you! The blouse is cute...but something about it is bothering me. Maybe it's the pattern down the front.

I also like your choice in this season IK.

After reupping my subscription for two years, I'm thinking it was all for nothing. Winter issue should be the best one for knitters, and it is so bleh! Eunny, wake up!
