It's a Wrap
With the Creative Knitting July photo shoot now in the past, I find myself reflecting on the tremendous teamwork it takes to produce just one issue of the magazine, which leads me to contemplate how connected we all are in every facet of life. If you stop and think about it, you'll see that we must rely on each other's help, and we're all just links on one big amazing chain!
The last several months since I've been on board with the magazine have been a bit of a whirlwind. I'm amazed to look back and see the ground we've paved and the new terrain that's left to be explored. Working in the publishing world is quite an adventure and not one day resembles another, and I thrive on this dynamic and constantly changing environment I'm a part of. With each new issue, I hope you'll gain a new skill and always find the pages filled with patterns you'll want to make for years to come!
Don't break the chain!
Kara Gott Warner
Editor, Creative Knitting magazine
Kara is a graduate of Parsons School of Design and holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Illustration. As a freelance illustrator, she specialized in 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. Her patterns are sold exclusively on Annie's Attic and e-PatternsCentral.com.
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 with reckless abandon. 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. As editor, Kara first joined DRG publishing in 2007 as a freelance editor and produced a variety of hardcover knitting books. In June 2010, Kara joined the DRG family full-time, as executive editor of Creative Knitting magazine and knit publications.
Kara's knitwear designs have been published in Creative Knitting, Vogue Knitting, Interweave Knits and Family Circle Easy Knitting. She is also the author of The Divine Drop Stitch.
