& Bryce Thomas
This is, without doubt, the biggest Knitty issue
ever. More patterns, more good stuff. I love the
variety we've got this time, and I hope you do,
too. Look at all those names over there on the right!
After an issue this big, I don't have too many words
But I'll think of something.
Knittyspin, launched last issue,
expands from a single column into a fledgling sub-mag.
More on spinning
without wool and spindles and a
different kind of plying you might want to try.
And a whole lot on my new favorite thing: spinning
We welcome the contribution of Lorraine Smith,
editor of Spinners'
Quarterly, who has been spinning for more than
10 years and has a lot to share with us. She's also
now, I hope you've seen the 2006 Knitty calendar
-- the product of our first-ever calendar contest.
The submissions were amazing and people have been
loving the calendar big. Big!
If you'd like to get a copy for you or your Knitty
friends, you can find them, and lots of other great
last-minute gifts that require no knitting whatsoever,
here. Check out our holiday
cards! They make us giggle.
Don't forget -- you haven't
already, sign up for the Knitty
reader list to stay in the know about Knitty.
The list is never shared with anyone and we only
send out a few messages a year.
At this time of year, lots of people celebrate
lots of different things. Even people who celebrate
the same holiday don't necessarily celebrate it
the same way.
So I wish each of you the very happiest of holiday
seasons, warmth, comfort, safety, family and lots
of good knitting time. Be well, everyone.
