  1. My favorite part of the summer issue was the articles. I love to read about knitting. The patterns are great but I have so many things in my queue I don’t know when I will get to them, so I really enjoy the articles. Yours are much more informative than many print mags. bren7na on Ravelry.

  2. I love all the patterns, but I think my fav part is Wendy Johnson’s articles. I love everything she does and Lucy is pretty cute too! Thanks for the giveaway. Debbie in Alaska

  3. Ooh… I always like to try out new stitch markers. Of course winning a subscription / pattern collection would be great too!😉 I haven’t had a chance to read all the articles in the summer issue yet, but I would say Fannette is my favorite pattern. It’s great for 1 skein of sock yarn and I think the pattern could even hold up to a variegated yarn.
