Note From the Editor

"Don't be dismayed at goodbyes. A farewell is necessary before you can meet again. And meeting again, after moments or lifetimes, is certain for those who are friends."
--Richard Bach

After nearly seve years as Executive Editor of this amazing magazine, and part of the Annie's Publishing family for nearly 10 years, I bid you farewell.

As I write this, I'm preparing to embark on a new creative chapter, but Creative Knitting will forever be in my heart. I'll never forget the honor of having been asked to lead the CK ship and seeing my first issue in print.

Planning a new issue was my biggest thrill. I considered this to be the most important and creative step, and I viewed the process with fresh eyes, like a white canvas waiting to be painted.

Since the beginning, my wish has been to help you on your yarn-crafting path and to get down in the knitting "trenches" right along with you, sharing tips, tutorials and, of course, the patterns envisioned by the prolific designers who grace the pages of Creative Knitting magazine.

I wish you happiness and hope that you will continue to explore and discover new approaches with an open mind even if they seem to be a little out of your comfort zone.

I'm happy to share with you that Creative Knitting is being left in capable hands, those of experienced knitting designer Corrina Ferguson. Check in next issue to meet her! Until we meet again, my friends ...

Stay happy and always keep those needles clicking!

Kara Gott Warner
Executive Editor, Creative Knitting magazine

Kara first learned how to knit at age 12 from her grandmother, but not until her early adult life did she come back to the craft -- and hasnít looked back. When Kara rediscovered knitting, she used it as a much-needed escape from her hectic life working as a designer in New York City. She quickly fell in love with knitting, and her needles haven't stopped clicking since.

Kara is a graduate of Parsons School of Design and holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in illustration. Her specialty, technical illustrations for knitting, crochet and other craft books for major publishers. In 2002, Kara began designing patterns for her independent collection of knitting patterns, sold under the igottknits label.

Kara joined the Annieís team in 2008 as knitting book editor and produced a variety of hardcover knitting books. In June 2010, Kara joined the company full time as executive editor of Creative Knitting magazine and knit publications.

Kara's knitwear designs have been published in Creative Knitting, Interweave Knits, Vogue Knitting, and Family Circle Easy Knitting. She is also the author of The Divine Drop Stitch and instructor of the Mix & Match Sampler Annie's video class.

You can follow Kara on her blogging adventures on the Creative Knitting editor's blog, SplendidSticks.
