Note From the Editor
"Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much."
-- Helen Keller
As I sit to write this editorial letter, I find myself reflecting on the power of collaboration and how, through the talents and skills of many individuals, Creative Knitting amazingly comes to life every quarter.
This power I speak of is born from a team of people who share a mutual excitement and mission for the same end goal, which is the desire to create a magazine with spectacular patterns, engaging tutorials and compelling articles.
As you flip through the pages that follow, you'll notice something different. We've taken a "one-themed" approach this time around, and we're whisking you away on a lace and openwork journey! We encourage you to go beyond the traditional and introduce the concept of creating negative space with your knitting. Our goal is to encourage you to take some chances, question the rules and ask yourself, "What if I tried this ...?" Here's to our continued collaboration and a burning desire to create something meaningful!
