Knitting With a Conscience
The July 2011 issue of Creative Knitting has finally hit the scene, introducing you to a fresh assortment of yarns made from natural, recycled and sustainable fibers. Yarn makers are spinning out fibers made from materials like old blue jeans and corn, testament to the fact that with a little ingenuity and creativity the renewable resources at our disposal are unlimited!
By the way—you may have noticed some new changes to the magazine over the past several issues. Is there something that you wish we featured more? Is it more plus sizing that you seek? Perhaps you'd like to see more accessories or kids' items? Keep me in the loop because I'm on the lookout for your feedback!
*Reuse, recycle, renew; rep from * around.
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.
You can follow Kara on her blogging adventures at Splendid Sticks.
