Knitscene Fall 2008

 

What is fun to make and wearable in real life? What’s slightly quirky and unique without being outlandish? What is a good use of a yarn? What do people need in their closets?

The collection you’ll find in this issue of Knitscene is what we worked up on the basis of those questions. These are not novelty projects or purely conceptual, these are work-horse knits that fit into everyday life and can become funky or trendy through styling. At the end of the day, though phenomenal and intriguing as knits, these projects are real clothes. There’s no greater pleasure than getting repeated use out of a sweater you made—loving every stitch, the way it looks with everything, washing it season after season and seeing it rebloom. You’ll be so glad you made it.
