Twist Collective Winter 08 Issue

I love the new Twist Collective issue.

I even succumbed and bought three patterns, this time.

- Lotus Leaf mittens, with their intriguing modern pattern

- Sylvi overcoat, with it's beautiful huge flowers overlaid on the cables winding up the back

- Vivian zip-up cardigan, with the gorgeous all-over cablework

Oh man! So much eye candy! I also appreciate that, this time, they included their free pattern as a PDF download the first time. (It's the "Fourth Grade Hat", in case you haven't found it, yet).

I kind of liked the "Rebecca" sweater and "Harika" socks, but I figured I'd spent enough for now. Plus, they seem to be leaving all their patterns available in the shop. I wonder if they will organize them into categories later, or just leave them as a giant listing with pictures.

I wasn't too impressed with the "Winter White" design story. The lace sweater was impressive, but otherwise the other two patterns were kind of "blah".

Overall, I am very impressed with the quality that has gone into Twist Collective so far.

Keep up the good work!
