    Theme: Change

    In Issue 1, you’ll find thoughtful accessories and versatile garments that are designed with change in mind - change in seasons, in the way we work and live, in our choice of materials. We’re proud to be able to share the fantastic work of writers and visual artists with you with pieces that range from disability and knitting to body image, from queering the knitting status quo to what change means for our lives.

    Wonderful and realistic

    Beautiful patterns modelled by real and natural models - what a change in our society. You are really trying to make a difference towards sustainability in yarn but you are also showing real people in the modelling. Finally talking to us in a way we can relate to. Top !

    Change is good!

    I was first struck by the lovely model for the patterns in this issue. Thank you for selecting a model who not only wears each item beautifully, but who also has undoubtedly experienced change in her life. The essays in this issue are a gift. They each support the theme of this issue, and they each are stand-alone sources of inspiration. Now to the patterns. I want to knit them all! I will, however, start with Rimy. I am a daily walker along Lake Michigan’s shoreline. I want to have this sweater finished before the weather changes so I can grab it and go. Then, I want to knit Fluent. Then I want to return to this issue over and over and knit more.
