The Twist Collective's first issue really got me all jazzed up! Beautiful photography, lots of my favorite designers in one place, and more knitting patterns for my insatiable knitting-pattern brain. Sometimes I wonder how many hundreds of patterns I look at for every pattern that comes off my needles.
The people at Twist have pioneered a new strategy–the magazine, pics and articles are free, but the patterns themselves can be purchased individually. This strikes me as brilliant, because you only have to pay for one you choose, the designer gets a good price and there's still a lot of free content.
I'm also working on writing my first sweater pattern for that issue–I may be delusional that I can knit and calculate the whole thing before the photo shoot, but I'm going to do my darndest to deliver. The Fall issue's shaping up a real beaut–we've got more knitting patterns than any issue's had before!
Today–swim lessons for the kids and then arranging Belle's Bowling Birthday. That girl certainly knows what she wants.
