“The Spring/Summer 2006 season is getting off to a fashionable start as top knitwear houses all across Italy preview their newest collections,” reports Eleanora Natali. This issue is an introduction to Spring 2006 with Melissa Leapman’s knit and crochet fitted jackets, Skacel’s dynamite Big Mexiko Color Coat, Aurora Yarns’ stunning Ulster Lace Coat, along with several still-so-popular shrugs and fun purses.
Complimenting this wonderful collection of designs to choose from, we are showcasing Kollage Yarns in this issue with a delightful sampling of their yarns and designs. Also featured is Stitch Elegance, a company that produces beautiful hand-made glass knitting needles and accessories.
In Lesyle Solomon’s article, “I’m So Glad You Asked!”, she offers crochet finishes and tips for knitters, while Susan Lazear, in “Computer’s Don’t Byte”, enlightens you on how to get started selling all that extra yarn you have on eBay.
In addition, we want to thank all the contestants who sent great projects to Knit ‘N Style for the Lion Brand Yarn Design Contest. Click here to see list of winners.
