For serious knitters of "specialty" yarns

Just in case you were one of those who were being optimistic about the editorial direction of Knitter’s magazine:

XRX is a publisher most commonly known for KNITTER‚ÄôS Magazine, an important periodical for serious knitters. KNITTER‚ÄôS attracts the higher-end, designer-conscious hand-knitter, working in specialty yarns, from handspun alpaca to novelty “Fizz.”

(From the alumni page of the fashion school at Kent State — scroll over to Natalie Sorenson, XRX’s Production Coordinator.)

I thought of this after reading La KC’s post for today, in which she reminds us that questionable yarn choices in knitting magazines are usually advertiser-driven.

    That’s why there’s all that horrible Trendsetter yarn all over that raga, I mean, magazine.

    What that woman is wearing on her head captures the essence of Knitters perfectly–not a great advertisement for Kent State either.

    Eliza – Yeah, scary mutant diseased nipples. Yowza.

    Every time I get an issue of Knitter’s, I check the date on the label, because I’m SURE my subscription must have expired… and am disappointed that I got another issue…

    Am I the only one who’s kind of wondering why she’s wearing yarn nipples on her head?
