Sheesh! How could I forget to write about my hang at Unwind? I met the fabuloso Ms. Adina Klein who wowed us with a presentation of the new Knit.1 mag. The new issue has a centerfold! How hilarious is that? I was not prepared to be as blown away as I was by the designs. Wow. I know it's Lion Brand but c'mon....good design is just good design! The new ish will feature a ton of men designers, yes that's MEN WHO KNIT! One of the new designers was there as well, John Brinegar who is definitely someone to watch.
Adina also spoke of how VK and Knit.1 are open to new ideas from designers! How cool is that? Apparently, knit magazine sales are up over 10% in 2005 and Knit.1 is now going to 4 issues a year and will be available by subscription. All good news for us knitters!
