Advertising - Brenda's Style

Have you seen the fall issue of Vogue Knitting? Ruby bought me a copy when she came to visit the other night. It is the best!

Patriotic, Canadian knitters should run, not walk, to the nearest outlet to get this copy.

An entire section, titled "Oh Canada. Knitting Up North" is dedicated to the knitting scene in Canada. Cheryl Krementz writes a great in-depth article about the world of Canadian knitting. There is a Canadian Resource Guide and 8, count'em, 8 'Made In Canada' designs. Canadian Designers that Voque Knitting describes as "gifted knitwear designers".

As icing on the cake, there is a wonderful article about Elizabeth Zimmermann by 'Shirl the Purl' - Canadian, Shirley Scott. Meg Swansen, EZ's daughter has found an unpublished design in one of EZ's photo albums and intends to publish it this fall. My order is already in the mail.

This issue is truly special for Canadian knitters. Ruby couldn't have brought me a better gift.
