Knit.1 (Spring/Summer 09)

I got my advance copy of Knit.1 Magazine last week and let me tell you, it is good! As in, this might be my most favorite issue ever. There’s a good mix of knitted garments, accessories (socks, scarves, jewelry) and a fair amount of fun fantasy too–I probably won’t be rocking the sequinned miniskirt, but I appreciate the idea! If you haven’t checked out the ‘zine in a while, please, look again. I really feel like the editors are doing great things with it (I might be biased since I used to work with them, but still- check it out!). You can get a full preview of the projects on the website, and it hits newwstands May 5th.

This issue also happens to contain the first bit of press for  my new book, Crochet Adorned, yeah! You can see the clip here (in my flickr stream)– I think it’s too wide to post, so I’ll just type it for you:

From your closet to your jewelry box, Linda Permann shows you how to explore the crafty potential of every area of your life. Classic crochet trims transform same-old shoes and tired tanks. Motifs make aprons and totes new again. Simple stitches create one-of-a-kind earrings and brooches. With Crochet Adorned in one hand and a hook in the other, the possibilities are endless.

I also have a crochet scarf pattern in this issue which I’m particularly excited about. I really loved the finished result and the brain-stretching I had to do to figure out a way to connect all 50+ motifs without creating 50+ more ends to weave in. I now  present the Floral Trellis Scarf (ravelry link):


The sample was made from some lovely hand dyed yarns from Schaefer, and I liked it so  much upon seeing it again that I promptly ripped out the mohair scarf I was working on and started on this one. (I’m using my “use some from the stash, buy some to make it fun”  mentality– I had 2 partial skeins of GGH Kid Mohair, and will buy some mercerized cotton for the connecting. Color suggestions welcome!)

making my own version of the scarf

I think mine will turn out a little smaller due to my yarn/hook substitution, but I don’t mind. It’s actually a gift, but it won’t be given for quite a while (summer is coming, or so they say). Oh, and just so you know, blocking is a must for this project!

If you end up making this scarf, I’d love to see it, here or on Ravelry!

    Wow, I am loving that scarf! It's the most delish thing I have seen in awhile.

  • Kat

    Ohhh, I've been making lots of flowers too lately! Inspired!

  • Man, I feel like a slug! I'm supposed to be so creative, but I think I'm slacking! Congratulations!

  • What a great summary of your new book! Must be exciting to see that in print now. Makes me want to buy the book (of course!). That floral scarf looks so pretty and sounds fun to make too.

  • Yeah, I heard those knit.1 editors are the coolest. ;o) Your book is amazing. I'm so proud of you!
