What's in this Issue of Knit 'N Style
June 2007

We have some great projects for you in this issue! I love the fibers of summer – cotton, linen, silk, corn, bamboo, or blends of these – the “naturals” as they are being called in the industry. We have quite a few projects that can be worn alone this season or under a jacket when the weather starts to turn a little cooler. Make sure you take a look at our accessories section too – especially the award winning design by 10 year old Kate L’Esperance!

Last spring, I received a preview copy Knitting With Balls by Michael del Vecchio. I was impressed with Michael’s philosophy, his presentation of the material and, of course, his designs.  I contacted him immediately and we have collaborated on three of his designs to date in Knit ‘N Style. Michael del Vecchio is the new kid on the block and our Designer in the Spotlight this month.

Since we all have different body shapes, how can one pattern really work for everyone?  Learn to customize your garment with just a little shaping. Margaret Radcliffe, our how-to diva, shows us easy ways to get your work to have a tailored look. The ‘N Style Workshop this month will introduce you to adding bust darts with short row shaping.

Until next time, enjoy your knitting!
