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.
