The premiere issue (Guernseys anyone?) and Issue 9 which was all about shawls (and includes some fabulous patterns -- there goes the Rav queue). So far, these are my favorites (though we've really only scratched the surface).
Not really the patterns so much, but the styling. And that 'stache -- makes Jason Giambi look, well, he still looks like a 70s porn star to be perfectly honest -- is there anyone else out there who simply cannot look at the TV when he's batting?

Bloody Mary sock #1 done. I really like the way the yarn and the simple slip-stitch rib pattern work together. And the colors are fabulous.
