knitscene winter/spring 2010 & CEY

I am debating whether I should pick up the newest Knitscene Magazine. I really like the two looks below.

{heather raglan by Cecily Glowik MacDonald}

{Geodesic Cardigan by Connie Chang Chinchio}

I've bought a couple issues in the past, but have never knit anything from this magazine. I find the styling to be less inspiring than it's big sister Interweave, and the patterns, although trendier than other publications, a bit boring.

On the other hand, I am undoubtedly in *love* with this top from the Classic Elite Spring 2010 book Farmer's Market.

The shape, color, style, and construction are all right up my ally! Also, it reminds me of this vintage crush I have had for a long time.

As always, CEY has lots of gorgeously photographed spring and summer looks that I think will brighten up your cold, dreary January day.

I never bought Knitscene, but I want to buy this one. I really like the pattern of Melissa Wehrle, Boulevard Zip! I like the Classic Elite top, it's very feminine... Decision, decision!

I really like the geodesic cardigan...I faved it a day or two ago on ravelry. Where do I buy knitscene? Should I just get it online?

Classic Elite does a really REALLY good job with their patterns and books.

I completely like their sensibility... Yay for Pam Allen :)

Those were the same patterns I was eyeing! And I agree that the CEY pattern is adorable... I've had good luck with their patterns in the past.
