Episode 60: In conversation with RIB magazine

In this episode we have a special interview with Eric Lutz, publisher of RIB magazine, which we recorded at the Edinburgh Yarn Festival in March. We've been holding on to this interview for a while, but since the second issue of RIB will be hitting shops in early June, this seems like a good time to share the audio with you.

Make Happy – aka – What we’re working on

#MeMadeMay is still underway!

Rachel is still working on the handspun socks, and started spinning up some BFL for a sweater. The Kippen Cardigan has fallen by the wayside for the moment. Last episode’s sock yarn is finished and plied and washed and waiting for a moment when I can cast on!

Allison's latest progress on Clue 2 of the Joji Mystery Wrap MKAL, Starting Point.

Allison finished the crocheted tie for Harrison and not a moment too soon! Everything has been all about the Joji MKAL / mystery wrap which she's knitting in the Kitsilano colourway kit put together by SweetGeorgia Yarns. She's also been sewing and working on finishing a few things, including the Cleo dungaree dress by Tilly and the Buttons that is so close to being finished!

In conversation with RIB magazine

At the Edinburgh Yarn Festival earlier this year we were lucky enough to meet the publisher of new Canadian bi-annual magazine RIB, Eric Lutz. Eric and his business partner, editor Devon Johnson have created a fantastic magazine that helps to fill an often lacking niche – men’s knitwear patterns. Their approach is to create an inspiring collection of patterns for men who knit, and for those who like to knit for them.

A few of our faves from the upcoming issue 2 of RIB magazine (L-R): Rigging Pullover by Fiona Ellis, Fickle Steps Socks by Louise Tilbrook, and Cayley Pullover by Irina Anikeeva.

Issue 2 of RIB will be available in early June, and we share our thoughts on the pattern previews and what we're looking forward to knitting from this issue.
