What would we
do without cold weather? I don't
know, personally. I've always lived
in the northeast US or southeast
Canada (sort of the same thing,
geographically) and I love the
change of seasons. Weather is defined,
in my head, as to how sweater-friendly
This winter has
been super-friendly so far. In
fact, upon writing this, every
state in the US but one [hi, Florida!]
has snow...not quite what some
of you are used to. We hope we
can help: we've filled the issue
with layers of cozy. Lots of really
creative sweaters (but still very
wearable), some lovely lace and
super accessories, if I do say
We hope you find
something in these pages that makes
you rush to your needles!

reap what you sow time – the
knitting with my handspun time.
In winter, I can’t
get my yarn off the bobbin and
onto my needles fast enough.
I dry my washed skeins frightenly
close to our fireplace so they’ll
dry faster and I can start knitting
Right now I have Annis on
my needles in a BFL and Merino
yarn, a huge chunky cowl out
of Columbia, and a hat in a Corriedale
cross. And that’s just
Now that Knittyspin
is live I can’t wait to
