For obvious reasons, I love the content in their eco issues but this one especially, means a lot to me. Here are a few reasons why:
First and foremost, this is the last issue with my dear friend Adina as the editor. As always is the case with her work (and the rest of the K.1 team), the styling, content, and design influence is all goy-geous! So, even though this is technically “the Green Issue”, from this moment forward I’ll be referring to it as the “Adina Klein Commemorative Issue.” 😉
Secondly, I REALLY appreciate her sporting a sweet cardigan, made out of her namesake color in VHC Craft yarn. You can find the pattern on their website here and the yarn to make it with is available now on the SWTC site (you can also reach them through the yarn pages on my site).
Lastly, but not leastly, my lovely friend Adrienne is the feature of this edition of the celeb knitting column which ended up planting the seeds for our upcoming joint-venture: Eco-Stitch (working title), an environmentally conscious knitting & crochet book! More on this, later.
Check out the article for Adrienne’s insight on earth-friendly fibers, her knitting history, her new sustainable living shop (also featured in the April issue of Lucky Magazine–the one with Hilary Duff b tge cover) and pictures shot especially for us by her photographer sister, Natalie Redpath.
Alright, I’m off to get a Skype phone so I can finally do the new CRL podcast interviews…and a new pair of Spanx (because frankly, I’ve worn my other pairs out) for the Austin Craft Mafia Southern Living Magazine shoot tomorrow!
