Only Issues 2 and 4 are left
Issue 2 : Their first spring issue, took a turn for the pink. It was the first issue where we used a color palette to drive our editorial decisions—all inspired by ourmain feature, knitwear designer and CFDA finalist Ryan Roche. The team visited Ryan at her home studio in upstate New York and got a peek at what inspires her incredible line of hand knit cashmere clothing. We were inspired by Sade to photograph the embroidery-on-denim trend that’s still persisting; turned up in Brooklyn to visit friends and studio-mates Lauren Manoogian and Erin Considine; followed Ship & Shape designer Annika Kaplan to New Mexico, where she learned the weaving techniques that have made the region famous. Pansy designer Laura Schoorl took us on a whirlwind tour of her favorite inspiration spots in San Francisco and Alex and Cat of Cave Collective interviewed each other—Interview-style—about their shared and different artistic practices. Instagram heavy-hitter Clare Nicholson styled a pop art-infused photo story and textile guru Joanna Williams told us all the books every fiber enthusiast should have on their bookshelf. Plus, inspiring knitted editorials and our usual assortment of product and trend pieces. A dose of Knit Wit in springtime, in 100 full-color pages.
Issue 4 : Here, the team at Knit Wit celebrate all things fiberous en plein air. Coverstar, Maura Ambrose, grows or forages all the dyes with which she creates fabric from hand-stitched quilts. Meanwhile, in the very southern tip of India, Industry of All Nations gets a lesson in ancient resist-dyeing techniques using humble nails and wax. In Australia, twin sisters (and stitchers) Maricor/Maricar create vibrant embroidery, always with a playful wink. In the well, Hilary Walsh takes her new line Doen out for a spin with some friendly alpacas in California. All in all, an issue worthy of your beach bag, your knapsack or anywhere the summer might take you.
Knit Wit is now digital. Only a few of the biannual, print versions of the magazine are available. Editor Zinzi Edmundson and Art Director Gigi Jack constructed a place where readers can dive into the dynamic and rich world of contemporary fiber and textiles; for enthusiasts, masters or newcomers.
