    1. To knit with a reverse stitch. 2. Thread made of twisted gold or silver wire. 3. To flow with a curling or rippling motion as a shallow stream does over stones.

I agree with you entirely on Interweave Knits. (Didn't they used to have something to do with Threads?) I could never understand what was so "wonderful" about it, when all/most of the patterns are so icky. If they're not completely bad, there's always at least one element that is way off the beam. I never did subscribe, and have restrained myself from buying it for a long time. I always think I must be missing something, but I'm glad to hear I'm not. I see they publish Piecework magazine, which I used to get, and liked very much.

Speaking of unwearable designs in bulky yarn, have you seen VK's new mag for the young/hip knitter? I think they're attempting to seduce them with quickie projects, but I would think the results would drive them away....
