Remember when I shared that I'd purchased the latest Knitter's Magazine at Knit 'N Purl? How could I not? That scarf on the cover hooked me just like most of the garments on the covers do. The cover of Knitter's is kind of like the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swim Suit Issue. It is the very best of what is inside. That might be overstating a bit but when haven't I resorted to an overstatement to make my point.
Knitter's is by far my favorite magazine. I have been a subscriber for well over 20 years. When I see the Knitter's packet in my mail box, my eyes bug out a little, my breathing increases, my heart skips a beat and I swear sometimes I actually swoon. My sister texted me this week saying she'd gotten a letter from Knitter's and this will be the last Knitter's ever. I CAN'T BELIEVE IT! We are not having our mail forwarded so I will have to wait until February 1 to have actual proof in my hand this is true. Until then, I am holding on to the belief that this is all a big mistake. If it is actually, positively, really true (I don't doubt my sister, I am just holding on to the slim chance this is a horrible mistake), I am going to write a shining tribute to the magazine that made me think about knitting and fashion together. I emailed Molly from Knit 'N Purl to see what she knew about this disaster in the making. Until I hear from Molly or get home and see my letter from Knitter's, I will be holding my breath, not stepping on any cracks, throwing salt over my shoulder, crossing both fingers, wishing upon a star. Maybe this is just an early April Fool's joke. I may have to dedicate this year to knitting only projects from Knitter's. WOW! That would be exciting!
