To celebrate Knit1 magazine’s fall/winter 2008 issue, Editors Faith and Tanis hosted had a party at The Point. They enthusiastically gave their behind the pages peak into how they developed the magazine.
Along with their trunk show of finished items, they were joined by three of their designers, Jenn Jarvis who created the “Hooded Cardi”, Cathy Carron who developed two of the top down tops, “Embroidered Yoke Pullover” and Duotone Cardigan”, and Kathy Merrick’s color inspired “Multi Motif Afghan” (which despite Knit1’s title is crocheted!). Since I’ve been bitten by the lace bug, I was hoping to see the “live” version of the Hooded Cardi but alas it was MIA!
By far and away, the highlight of the evening was the goodie bags filled to the brim with things to warm any knitter’s heart including Knit1 magazine, Knit 101 book, Crystal Palace knitting needles, 2 balls of yarn including Manos silk and other samples!
