Well, what can I say? The new Twist Collective is out and I'm over the moon. Not only do I have two pieces in the edition, but one made the cover. There have been 21 editions of Twist and I've been in all but one of them and my first cover was edition 19, so I consider it a very special honor to make the cover even once. And of course, it helps that James Brittain took the beautiful photos that Kate carefully styled. Every pattern in the magazine is the result of the hard work of a small group of talented people. I feel so fortunate to get to work with all of them.
Of course the magazine is full of brilliant designs. I keep wanting to tell you what my favorites are and then I realize there are too many I love, in different ways, for different reasons. I think it's definitely worth making a few passes through the edition.
And of course, don't miss the articles. Lela Nargi's article on Carol Milne's glass sculptures is not to be missed. Barbara Gregory, whose work is always exceptional, talks about the merits of mosaic knitting. Franklin Habit and Clara Parkes both bring their wit and wisdom to their columns, and don't miss Amy Kings final installment in her goat rearing adventures.
Here's where you can get all the details on my two pieces.
