Vogue has a new look and deserves a new look if you are one of these knitters who found it too esoteric, filled with patterns both complicated and “vague” (an epithet for Vogue characterizing the sometimes difficult-to-follow patterns found within).  This fall issue debunks any previously-held biases against the magazine.  Full of wonderful articles on the Shetland Isles’ traditions and history, Fair Isle patterns for both large and small projects, and a section dedicated to patterns for men, it makes me wish I could claim Scottish roots.  Alas, I’ll just have to remain a Scotophile and continue knitting fair isle.
