In Other Words: Knitscene Designers on Knitscene Winter

Obviously we love talking about Knitscene—it's our bread and butter, our pride and joy, and we have so many things to say about our issues. But so do our designers! I've rounded up blog posts from designers featured in Knitscene Winter. Read what they have to say about their designs!

As the saying goes, "Inspiration strikes when you least expect it," and I'm pretty sure our featured designer Emma Welford wasn't expecting to find inspiration while on a date. But you can't stop the muses, and we're every so thankful for that, because Emma's collection, which she talks about in great detail, is absolutely stunning.

Hilary Smith Callis has designed some outstanding pieces for Knitscene over the last few years, but this is the first time her contribution has landed on the cover! We love the bright blue she recommended for her Thyri Pullover—check out her blog to learn more about her inspiration behind this easy top-down sweater.

Leah B. Thibault designed the Malaga Pullover, combining two colors of yarn in an understated men's sweater. Fun fact? Our male model is one of our photographers, who stepped out from behind the camera to show off this great sweater. Read more about Leah's thoughts and working with yarn held doubled on her blog.

Katya Frankel talked a bit about her Ravenna Cowl but even better, wrote up a great slip-stitch knitting tutorial for working Ravenna. Be sure to read all about slipped stitch colorwork to help you knit your own cowl.

Kathleen Sperling designed her Otranto Cowl for her brother-in-law, and it makes an excellent gift to knit for a guy or gal in your life. 

And Beatrice Perron Dahlen showed off some photos on her blog.

Robin Allen talked about about her Paros Hat (be sure to check out all of the great variations on Ravelry), and Sarah Hurwitz showed off her Ilsa Cardigan.
