Welcome to the first issue of The Knitter of 2013! If the new year has prompted you to embark on a yarn diet, then we sympathise! Rosee says: “I’m very much looking forward to buying a skein or two of my favourite yarn in 2013, after spending the past 12 months on a ‘stash down’.”
You may notice a few changes to The Knitter this issue. We’re excited to bring you our first-ever Mini Mag, with three patterns for children. We've also launched a new monthly column, with our first from Jane Sowerby, author of Victorian Lace Today.
Jane is still discovering new treasures from those Victorian knitters, and has designed an exclusive shawl for readers of The Knitter, which you can adapt to your own style.
we also have a stunning home knit from Kaffe Fassett and a pretty beret by Louisa Harding. Louisa has designed a series of hats as part of her campaign for Macmillan Cancer Support. Find out how you can help on page 71.
If, like Rosee, you’re addicted to Ravelry.com, then Mimi Hill’s tutorial on photographing your knitting is perfect for making sure your project photos really shine.
Now that December’s knitting ‘work’ is over, we do hope you'll make something for yourself from this issue, and wish you a very happy and healthy 2013!
