Twist Collective's Spring Issue is live and lovely. If you haven't seen this online knitting magazine, do check it out. They put a great new twist on the genre...snazzy themed layouts with models posing in beautiful places (not to mention some of the most adorable babies...gad!), lots of eye candy, really interesting articles (like Barbara Parry's sheep...oh, the lambs) and how to paint on knitted lace with dye by Linda Whiting. They have regular columns by faves like Claire Parkes of Knitters Review (Swatch It) and the Mason Dixon gals Ann Shayne and Kay Gardner (Dear Problem Ladies). And this issue features my photos in Notebook, beautifully compiled in Twist Collective's inimitable style. This is a very special honor. Thanks, ladies!!!!
In celebration of Spring, I'm offering a new pattern on my Etsy store. Undulation Cuffs put on the romance with a whimsical touch of lace. The cuffs in the photo are knit in Cascade Sierra, a cotton/wool blend in a soothing pale indigo (color 23) that melds magically with denim. They are fun to knit and fun to wear. Pattern gives tips on sizing...even for children sizes. Emma loved being a part of our photo shoot. While mom Elizabeth modelled Undulation in her vintage Levi's jacket, Emma brought us homemade goat cheese and crackers she had fixed herself. After we were through shooting, Emma tried on the cuffs and danced around in them. Here she is handing them back, all done up like a bunch of flowers. Great gift wrap idea???
