I think I can safely say that this is my favorite issue of Knitty yet!
There’s an article about knitting with beads by Knitgrrl 2 beaded-knitter extraordinaire Sivia Harding, and a new column about Frankenknits™ by Knitgrrl tech editor Kristi Porter. (Kristi’s as into creative reuse and alterations as I am! Not only does Felt Tips feature recycled felt projects but I’m also currently working on a sewing-related book for another publisher that does some interesting garment renovations, too!)
Jillian made a gorgeous hat out of some hand-dyed wool I gave her in January. That’s one of my favorite colorways, I’m incredibly excited to see it put to such good use!
Knitgrrl 2 was reviewed:
If Debbie Stoller is the the Queen, then Shannon Okey is the High Priestess of the garage band school of knitting. With Knitgrrl 2, Shannon moves her tween and tweenie-minded knitters from the knitting basics to knitting power chords.
I’m blushing. Seriously. But “high priestess” is better than “Donald Trump of knitting”… (that still makes me laugh, Amy!)
And, if you liked the dye job on Jillian’s hat, you can learn how to do it yourself with my article on dishwasher dyeing!
Thanks, Amy and the rest of the team at Knitty, for continuing to put out the best online knitting mag there is! (the addition of KnittySpin is just icing on the Magnolia cupcake)
