Latest Knitting Articles

The Opposite of Love is Moths (I don't title 'em, I just write 'em) in the current issue of Knit.1

Knitted items are like relationships: It takes work and tender loving care to keep them in shape. Both are also inherently fragile and gradually disintegrate over time, but who’s bitter?
Brandon Mably's Colorful Wanderlust in the current issue of Vogue Knitting. That's the one with my sweater in it; his (the "handprint" sweater) is right next to mine.
At 8:30 a.m. en route from Seattle to Portland, Brandon Mably whoops with satisfaction and relief. Somewhere near Centralia, Washington, hometown of modern dance legend Merce Cunningham, Mably needs his morning caffeine and has finally found a Starbucks. He brings the same joyous enthusiasm to the workshops in color and design he teaches around the world and now to his new book, Knitting Color.

Note the completely gratuitous reference to Merce Cunningham. Can't help it; it's the first thing I think of when I think of Centralia. This gratuitous Cunningham reference is brought to you by my friend Nancy Dalva, whose love for Merce and elegant, passionate writing about his work helped me understand and appreciate it.

The articles are only available in print.

I'd do it if I they gave me her apartment and her wardrobe budget, although I don't know if I'd look good in Patricia Field.

So are you telling me I actually have to BUY copies of these magazines in order to see what you said? Professionals never pay for these things ya know. :D
