K.1 2nd Annual Green Issue!

The new issue of Knit.1 Magazine is finally available!

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!
Happy mag reading!

    Thanks, Sonia for the sleuthing to find the pattern. I changed the post, to link to the Adina cardi. Yay!
    That’s funny that you saw that thing on YouTube because it’s just this silly test thing I put together for a possible mobile phone program for my publisher. Totally wasn’t meant for anyone to see, really. I didn’t think people really looked at my YT stuff unless I directly spoke about or linked to it. so, if you comment, please be kind. it’s just me, in my office with a cheap camera and imovie. 😉

    Thank you so much for the Lemon Drop kit prize that safely arrived today. I’m loving the yarn and the colors of the yarn. I am really looking forward to trying the pattern.

    Blogging have to wait to daylight tomorrow, for the pics. 🙂

    Thanks again!

    i loved your article about adrienne. i was so jealous of her when she married billie joe. he was supposed to be MY husband! *grins* i’m glad that there are celeb knitters doing more with the green initiative and i can’t wait to see her book.

    i’m bummed that adina is no longer with vogue. i remembered her from the KG eppy where she did fibbonacci knitting and that episode gave me the inspiration to make my “throw that never ends” throw for my hubby’s grandmother last xmas. best of luck to her!

    Anon–You can get this magazine at any major book or yarn store. It’s officially on stands today, but people with subscriptions got it last week. 🙂

    Diva–My condolences on the loss of your man. 😉
    Oh, and I can’t wait to even start our book! The deadline just got pushed up so, yikes, we’d better get crackin’!
