The first issue came out last fall and was great, the second came out few days ago: waiting to receive it at home I had a chance to browse a digital version and I was really impressed!
First of all, the editorial, in which Zinzi Edmundson, founder of the magazine with Gigi Jack, declars the intent to create a real community of likeminded fiber artists, makers and admirers.” Here I am!
In last months I had the opportunity to exchange a few e-mails with Zinzi and ask some questions: I like to discover details about the people behing the projects I write about, and once again I was fascinated.
Zinzi grew up on the East coast, but has lived in Los Angeles for 12 years and has worked for the past 7 as a freelance writer for Refinery29, Dwell, Nasty Gal and as a copywriter for Vans and Nixon. Most recently she worked for two magazines, one dedicated to fashion and surf – FOAM magazine – and the other dedicated to the kitchen – Bon Appétit.
Now that she founded Knit Wit, she still continues to write as a freelancer and also has a band with her husband: the band is called Kisses, I listen to their music on Bandcamp and they are officially on my summer playlist!
A little preview on Knit Wit second issue
Second issue is made by 99 pages about natural dyes, crochet swimwear, handmade kites and embroidered denim: I’m so happy to show you some pictures in preview!
After the workshop with Anna Maltz I’m obsessed with decorative jeans mending. And this example is great and it seems really pro: my sewing skills are not enough!
Natural dye returns and returns in my 2015: Kristin Amber Morrison lives and works in the countryside, grows dyeing plants and seems very happy. And her studio is a joy to behold!
Erin Considine and Lauren Manoogi have been worked in the same space in New York, but now, thanks to the growth of their business, each one has her own laboratory.
Erin designs jewelry, she is a fiber artist and knows how to dye wool naturally. Lauren creates knits using Peruvian wool, and she visit the country every two months: she has established a true working relationship and friendship with her Peruvian producer and with the local weavers.
Two jewelry designers working together despite living on opposite coasts: the history of Cave Collective, in form of interview by Cat Lauigan to Annie Edmonds.
Some pages are dedicated to the best yarns: the styling by Clare Nicholson is studied in details and the pictures by Gary Maclennan are amazing. Believe me, you don’t want to miss this article.
A visit to the studio of fashion designer Ryan Roche, to discover her precious knits in soft colors ranging from ivory to blushing pink.
