Marilyn’s Bed Jacket

At last… it’s out, finally! I received my Interweave Knits Winter 2008 issue in today’s mail and had my first chance to see my very own Marilyn’s Bed Jacket on the page. So much better than when I tried to model it myself, because as per instructions the size I made is clearly intended for a wearer who is more abundantly endowed than I. As you can see:

Lots of new designers in this issue, which is full of unfamiliar names. Seems that many of the all-stars are publishing in the new issue of Twist Collective, which went live just a few days ago. Personally, though it’s always wonderful to see the names of designers whose work I already know and love, I also enjoy seeing new work by new designers who are not already household names. Keeps things fresh, in my opinion.

Not only is my pattern out for knitters, but my feature interview with Norah Gaughan made it into the issue… four full pages of all things Norah. Truthfully, she has had such an incredible career in the knitting industry that IK could devote an entire issue to her! What a lovely individual she is; interviewing her for the magazine was as big a thrill as having my cardigan design accepted.

Detail above of one very special pewter button, a finishing touch to the rich tweed cardigan.

Talk about perfect timing, and something for which I am most thankful. This issue could not have arrived at a better time, since I’m heading out to visit family for the holiday this week. Happy Thanksgiving, all. Will be back in a few days.
