Austen Insider

A new knitting magazine has recently come out which I am in love with! Jane Austen Knits by Interweave, is a compilation of Austen inspired patterns, historical articles and general Victorian whimsy. It's really lovely to look at and if you are a Jane Austen fan then definitely worth a read, even if you aren't a knitter. Some of the articles give great insight into the world of Jane Austen, as well as enlightening us about the author herself from a crafters point of view.

The patterns are generally frilly and feminine, which is right up my alley. And while not all of them are practical for everyday wear, some of the garments are really charming. I have to say that my favorite pattern so far is the Scarlet Capelet:
