Review: Interweave Knits Summer 2011
Dana: Congrats to our friends Brittany & Wyane of KnitWitch for having their yarn bowl featured in this issue! 🙂 I loved the photos in this one! Especially the “popsicles” on the review of different bast fibers. (Brittany agrees!) I LOL’d when I read the article on Ben Cuevas and the quote at the end: “He invites anyone who has a locker room where he could knit in the nude to contact him.” (I’d love to hear about the follow up on this one!) The article on making your own pictoral lace motifs is intriguing- I might try that sometime. Kathy Zimmerman is freaking amazing- I loved getting a better peek into her life and design aesthetics. (mentioned: Marseilles Pullover, Fern Sweater, Bryn Mawr Cardigan) As far as patterns go, I like the Adriatic Cardigan, the Swirl Skirt, the Lion Oh! Sweater, the Amelia Hoodie, and the Hourglass Lace Socks. I’m excited about the Interweave Knit & Spin special edition magazine, but don’t know when it’s going to be in stores- do any of you know?
Brittany: I like the Adriatic Cardigan a lot, and the Hourglass Lace Socks. Really like the Swirl Skirt, but unsure if I’d wear it. I liked the silk article- really informative on types of silk. (and applicable considering we’re taking a silk spinning class…) I feel like the lighting is odd, and there is a lot of weird styling/colors on the models, considering it’s summer… (and Dana agrees!)
