Knitgrrl 2 got a lovely review in the new knit.1 — thank you! I’ll scan it in as soon as I’m able. I’m also quoted in Stephanie Klose’s article about fiber art, and they used some photos from the show I curated back in January, as well as a photo of a piece I did for Cynthia von Buhler’s “Spun” show at CVBSpaceÂ in Manhattan a few months ago. Fun!
How can you not love that YMN cover? The model with yarn skeins draped around her neckÂ reminds me of Erica Weiner‘s method for wearing her fabulous yarn kits if you’re in too much of a rush to knit them up! (a la the pink scarf in Knitgrrl, which was made with one of her kits)
And speaking of multicolor, fantastico yarn, the amazing women at Mango Moon are helping me out with a project for an upcoming book of mine. Two words: sari silk. That’s all you need to know for now. Ok, ok, one more word: denim. There, that’s all you get.
We’re doing a photo shoot for that book in NYC next month, which I am both tremendously excited about and extremely nervous about, practically simultaneously. Fortunately, I have at least three incredibly talented, good friends helping me with itÂ (Stephanie did some location-scouting the other day and the test shots she sent were just perfect) — this eliminates a little of the stress at least.
