Knitscene Winter Preview
Fall has arrived in Colorado, I can see my breath in the morning, the air is crisp and the aspens are starting to turn gold. The colder weather means it's time to start wearing sweaters and hats and mittens and scarves, wonderfully warm winter wear! And, just in time, Knitscene Winter has patterns designed with colder weather in mind.
British Designer Ruth Garcia-Alcantud's designer collection showcases fiber focused designs full of delicate stitches. I would very much like to run away with the Quadraphonic Cardigan, though I've promise I will not! Her Victor Shawl makes me want to snuggle up with a good cup of tea, a good old movie and my knitting.

There are so many beautiful and cozy sweaters in this issue, it's incredibly difficult to decide which to make first. Ashley Rao's Tara Jacket is a fantastic take on the moto jacket, with a tubular cast-on and a stylish zipper. Amanda Scheuzger's Mauveine Henley features beautiful lace and delicate three quarter length sleeves. Kelli Kemery's Thinleaf Jacket has an asymmetrical front and a cabled back, a beautifully unique pairing.

In this issue you can learn about tubular cast-ons, be Inspired by Nature by Alana Dakos, and get to know the blog Eskimimi Makes. No matter what kind of project you're ready to start, whether a sweater or an accessory, this is indeed the perfect time of year for knitting. As a sweater grows on your needles, it keeps your lap warm. As soon as you finish a hat, it's weather appropriate to wear. This is an issue of beautiful projects with winter on the mind. We hope you enjoy it!
