Vogue Knitting Spring/Summer

Here's a sneak peak at one of the patterns that will be in the Spring/Summer issue of Vogue Knitting.

Even though we didn't have a really cold and snowy winter, it was still grey and dreary. The Sage (43ns) Solemate hints at spring and that feel so good right now. It makes my eyes happy.

Beading seems to be all the rage these days. So many shawls are including it and I'm liking the idea of having in on socks too. Not every pair, I'm not that crazy, but it'd be nice to have a few in the sock drawer. Especially since I'm seeing skirts with sneakers and such everywhere.

Speaking of sneakers we had a conversation around the lunch table earlier in the week about what we called athletic shoes. We all had a different answer. Tennis shoes? Gym shoes? Trainers? I called them tennis shoes until I was in high school. Then I started dating a guy whose dad worked for Converse. He called them sneakers and that's what I've called them ever since. What term do you use?

Gym shoes. We always had to wear them for gym class (phys ed). At least that's what we called it in my CPHS.

We always called them sneakers or "sneaks".
