How to measure your bust
I hardly know what to say in response to your extremely generous and intelligent replies to Wednesday's post....except
THANK YOU. Thank you for taking time out of your busy lives to tell us
your dreams, hopes, frustrations, and wishes for sizing in knitting
patterns. All of us here at Interweave appreciate your thoughtful
responses, and your willingness to tell us about your needs, more than
we can say.
Just so you know what I mean by "generous replies": As of this moment, over 7,000 of you have responded to our Sizing Survey
(Update: Unfortunately, voting is now closed!), 291 of you have left a
comment, and more than a hundred have sent in your thoughts via email.
I stayed up late last night to read all the comments, and then I read
the new ones that came in today. Your suggestions are already a hot
topic of discussion around the offices here!
Here on Knitting Daily, we will be bringing you the results of the >Sizing Survey
and addressing some of the topics you raised...starting next week! Stay
tuned. And again: Thank you for being such an amazing community!
Eunny Jang, editor of Interweave Knits
Interview with Eunny Jang: Part 3
Let's talk about what's in the Fall issue of Interweave Knits, because I know everyone is really eagerly awaiting your first issue as editor. Can you give us a sneak peek?
Well, the previews have gone up on the Knits website,
and the magazine should be hitting newsstands in mid-August. It's
absolutely jam-packed with projects and articles. We're stretching
within the new format, too, and finding out what it can do – for
example, one of the "stories" is all about cables and where you can go
using just that one technique; another is about all the many and
diverse directions simple textures can take you in. The new format lets
us structure these kinds of mini-explorations into a technique, a
construction, a fiber – which are, hopefully, satisfying to read and
follow. All knitting is like that: one technique builds on another, one
element is changed at a time, new possibilities are always opening up.
Do you have a favorite design in the magazine - or is that like having to choose between silk and cashmere?
You've got that right! I don't want to single out a favorite, but I
am completely fascinated by Jared Flood's Cobblestone Pullover. It's
incredibly simple, but is so elegant in the way those simple textures
and constructions are combined - it's as satisfying as a balanced
What do you envision for the next year of Interweave Knits? Can you tell us anything about your plans for winter and spring yet?
We're going to continue exploring all kinds of knitting in all kinds
of ways – for example, one story in the Winter issue will explore
sleeves beyond the typical, and one in Spring thinks about dressmaker
details. We're eventually going to roll out some cool web-based stuff,
too. In the end, it's all about serving up really good content for
knitters, so of course we'll keep listening and responding to our
readers to give them the best possible magazine we can in every issue.
And now it's YOUR turn to ask Eunny a question! Leave a comment with your question, and Eunny and I will choose a few for her to answer in upcoming issues of Knitting Daily!
Sandi Wiseheart is the editor of Knitting Daily.
What is on Sandi's needles today? The front of the Bonsai Tunic by Norah Gaughan. The front is done and on the blocking board! Hooray!
